4 POSSIBLE EXPERIENCES At the Itinerary Development Day, with guidance from one of our destination experts, the team will be able to choose from options to finalise their itinerary. The choices may include the project they work with, the challenge level and type of trek and where they go for some rest and relaxation! ADVENTURE Travel to Latacunga for an incredible trekking experience to the famous volcanic crater lake, Laguna Quilotoa. Trek high up into the the Andes, travelling over meadows, across rivers and through eucalyptus trees to reach the lake. It is filled with beautiful turquoise water, coloured by natural volcanic minerals. Along the way you will be camping in this beautiful Andean environment, located close to Cotopaxi - the world s highest active volcano; offering spectacular views. Head to the jungle town of Tena and explore the mighty Amazon jungle. Cool off in the rivers and enjoy the local cuisine as you take in the largest and most species-rich tract of tropical rainforest in the world. Spend your nights in a jungle lodge run by local families, giving you a great insight into life in the Amazon. Spend six days exploring one of the world s greatest treasures - the Galapagos Islands! As Charles Darwin realised, the diverse creatures here represent a vision of the past, present and future. This isolated group of volcanic islands and its fragile ecosystem has taken on almost mythological status as a showcase of biodiversity. Yet you don t have to be an evolutionary biologist to appreciate one of the few places left on the planet where the human footprint is kept to a minimum. The islands are home to many endemic species, from giant tortoises and iguanas to sea lions and penguins. You will have plenty of time to spot these amazing creatures as you journey between the islands, camping out and falling asleep to the sounds of the ocean and wildlife. Ecuador & Galapagos Expedition Guide

5 PROJECT For your project you may choose to work with the Yanapuma Foundation in a Tsa chila community, near Santo Domingo. The Foundation aims to facilitate sustainable practices in poor urban areas and rural communities in Ecuador. The Tsa chila communities are working hard to preserve their rich culture in the face of modern life but there are only about 2,500 Tsa chila left. Most of the families in the communities earn their living through agriculture. The Yanapuma Foundation are working with these communities to increase the number of fruit trees on their farms, as well as reforesting local tree species. In the past, Outlook teams have assisted with construction work and planting trees in the cacao plantations. Groups also get a chance to be involved in cultural exchange activities. Spending time in a local community will give you a unique opportunity to get a true insight into their culture and way of life, as well as giving a little something back to this amazing country. outlookexpeditions.com5

6 EXAMPLE ITINERARY The below itinerary has been created by our Expedition Planner as a guide. DAY 1 DAY 2-3 DAY 4-5 DAY 6-10 DAY 11 DAY DAY DAY 19 DAY DAY 26 Travel from the UK to Ecuador. Quito is the perfect place to begin exploring Ecuador. See the historic sites of Quito s Old Town and the dozens of museums, shops, cafes and restaurants. Visit the market town of Otavalo and explore the surrounding area. A trek around Laguna Cuicocha, or guinea pig lake, is a great way to acclimatise to the climate and altitude. Travel to Santo Domingo and get to work on a project with one of the remaining small communities of the Tsa chila. As well as your contribution to a development project you will have the opportunity to learn about what life is really like in a traditional Ecuadorian community. Travel back to Quito, then on to Latacunga ready to start your trek. Trek through villages, forests and agricultural land high up in the Andes. Your trek will end at the stunning Laguna Quilotoa - a turquoise lake filling the caldera. Travel to Tena in the Amazon basin and spend two nights in a jungle lodge in the Amazon rainforest. Trek into the jungle and learn about this fragile environment as well as the cultures and traditions of the people who live here. Return to Quito and prepare for your visit to the world famous Galapagos Islands. Spend the next six days in the footsteps of Charles Darwin exploring the world famous Galapagos Islands. Get a close up view of the amazing creatures that inhabit the islands before returning to Quito. Soak up the culture of Quito and enjoy a celebratory meal as a team to mark the end of a successful expedition. DAY Depart Ecuador and fly back to the UK for your homecoming.
