FAQs: Hiking in Ecuador

What should I know about Hiking Ecuador?

The Ecuadorian province of Napo lies at the core of the country. It is home to dense rainforest that is packed full of biodiversity as well as many indigenous communities. The province is a chunk of the Amazon rainforest, and contains the Napo River. The capital of the province is Tena, founded in the 16th century and home to approximately 33,000.

Staggering stratovolcanoes

The Andes run directly through the centre of the country, and rising from the range are spectacular cone-shaped volcanoes sprinkled with snow.
