Tropic welcomes avid walkers/trekkers to join organized 7, 4 and 3-night Mountain Guardians Lodge-to-Lodge Climbing and Trekking programs exploring the tops and underbellies of four volcanoes and diverse eco systems in one of the most bio-diverse countries of the world, Ecuador.
This is another unique adventure developed by Ecuador’s award-winning ecotourism company, Tropic Journeys in Nature.
“Mountain Guardians is Tropic’s desire to develop a sustainable tourism operation that integrates local entrepreneurs into the concept of sustainable tourism development,” says Jascivan Carvalho, owner.
Since 1994 Carvalho’s company has worked to help preserve the Amazon. It recently expanded its ecotourism as a tool for conservation messages into the Galapagos. “Now we want to incorporate the Andes, such an incredible ecosystem that has extreme value to the world and where all of the fresh waters sources for Ecuador are born.” This region is also home of emblematic and endangered species such as the Andean Condor and the Spectacle Bear.
