This is a sample itinerary of a 3 day trip at Mashpi Lodge Ecuador

Day 1 - Arrival Day and Hike

En route from Quito to Mashpi Lodge, stop at the ruins of Tulipe to learn about the ancient Yumbo tribe that once resided here in the cloudforest. Then you'll head to Mashpi, where a friendly staff will welcome you and help you get situated in your spectacular room with a gorgeous view of the surrounding Ecuadorian cloudforest. A brief orientation is followed by lunch and a guided afternoon hike. Another evening hike will acquaint you with the nocturnal species around the Mashpi lodge, after this you will enjoy an amazing dinner and enjoy the lodge facilities.

Day 2 - Observation Tower and Aerial Bike

An early morning makes for an ideal bird-watching tour, as your guide will help identify the many species you'll spot. Then you'll enjoy a hearty breakfast before visiting the 30-meter observation tower, putting you in the heart of the canopy. The aerial bike is the next activity - unique to Mashpi Lodge! Then a different trail will take you back to the lodge. In the afternoon, you'll head to the Wildlife Center to learn about the various endemic species around Mashpi Lodge and see butterflies in all stages of metamorphosis.

Day 3 - Bird Watching & Departure

In the morning, pack your suitcases and prepare for one final birding adventure to spot the birds feeding on the nocturnal insects and see the majestic Copal Waterfall surrounded by orchids. If you'd like to purchase a souvenir, the gift shop has a collection of fun memorabilia. Then it's time to say farewell to this amazing and luxurious Ecuador lodge and head back to Quito, passing the City at the Center of the World along the way.
