After a delicious welcome dinner, we will share with you, together with a local guide from Cuyabeno, the program for the next few days.

Our paddle boards give us the perfect opportunity to see this event up close. On the way back we will stop for a morning meditation circle to connect our souls and nature in a floating environment.

After a rich breakfast we will talk about yoga philosophy and then you will have the time for self-study and self-practice, journaling or just indulge into your own thoughts. The support of the instructor is always available.

After lunch, we will take the motorised canoe to visit the place where 2 rivers meet. This is the perfect place to spot dolphins and to enjoy the beautiful landscapes of the Cuyabeno rainforest. Our next destination is the Bird Observation Tower. This tower of more than 28 meter high was built around one of the largest trees in the area. Here, you will enjoy a beautiful view of the jungle canopy and observe a great diversity of animal life.
