forest and return to Quito
Wake up with the sound of many birds and enjoy a good breakfast with homemade products.
Afterwards, you visit the Piganta forest by foot. Your English-speaking guide shows you the endemic flora and fauna of this eco system. Piganta is home to the spectacled bear, the only bear in South America. This bear is an omnivore and weighs between 80 to 125 kilograms. Although he is difficult to spot, it is a good sign that the ecosystem is largely intact and that agriculture is being practiced on a reasonable level.
With some luck you can spot the endangered Andean eagle which nests in this forest. Other bird species can be observed such as tanagers, falcons and the black-chested buzzard eagle.
After lunch the driver will bring you back to Quito or to your next destination.
