Amazon Ecuador Tours
East of the Andes begins the Amazon region. The region extends all the way to the Atlantic Ocean in Brazil. Due to the closeness to the Andes a unique environment is created. Therefore, it is characterized by tropical rainforests in the highlands. Hence, there is a lot to see within the Amazon Ecuador Tours. Also there are many rivers from the Mountains that are flowing into the Amazon River. Just to mention a few: Napo River and the Pastaza River.
The Ecuadorian Amazon region has an enormous biodiversity rate. By the way, the Yasuni National Park is the place on earth with the highest biodiversity per unit. During those tours you will sleep in lodges. A great way to explore the natural habitat of the rainforest. In the north and east you can still find a lot of primary rainforest, while the northwest is more inhabited.
The Ecuadorian rainforest is usually referred as The Amazon. Certainly a great area to explore almost untouched wildlife. Further you get the chance to get in touch with a high variety of animals and plant species. SOLEQ.travel offers several options for visiting the Amazon.
