Combined Tours to the Jungle, the Galapagos Islands, Ecuador and Peru
A trip to La Selva Amazon Ecolodge is the adventure of a lifetime, but why stop there? There is much to see and do in Ecuador and Peru, and booking a combination tour is easy. Here are just a few possible excursions which can be added to your jungle tour:
- The Galapagos Islands: The Galapagos Islands are the can’t-miss destination of western South America. See the giant tortoises, sea lions, Blue-footed Boobies and the finches that inspired Charles Darwin’s Theory of Evolution. Combining a trip to La Selva with a Galapagos Cruise on board one of Haugan Cruises' luxury catamarans, the Ocean Spray, the Petrel and the Cormorant, would make for an unforgettable vacation to see the very best that Ecuador has to offer.
- Machu Picchu: One of the seven winners of the New Seven Wonders of the World competition, the lost city of Machu Picchu in Peru evokes the grandeur of the Inca Empire. Travel through time in breathtaking scenery to the days when mighty Inca lords ruled the Andes from Colombia to Chile. Another can’t-miss destination, Machu Picchu never fails to amaze and astound visitors with its history and natural beauty.
- The Otavalo Handicraft Market: This traditional handicraft market, located about two hours north of Quito, is one of the best markets of its kind in the world. Every Saturday, hundreds of vendors set up shop, selling finely made items like sweaters, hammocks, woodcarvings, paintings, jewelry, toys, rugs and much, much more. Even on other days of the week, you’ll find vendors there willing to sell you a special souvenir.
- Quito: The city of Quito is a destination in itself. The old colonial center of town is a UNESCO World Cultural Heritage site and features restored hotels, churches, cultural centers, shops and more. Many of our guests enjoy a Quito city tour before or after their jungle experience.
