Zip lining is a safe adventure activity that works well either for kids (5 and up) or for adults. Does not require any kind of experience because all the gear is manipulated by a trained person -and also if you do not feel comfortable doing it alone, they can go in tandem with you-. You do not have to do much, just enjoy the flight!.

My favorite canopy place is “Tucanopy” in the Cloud Forest in Nanegalito, a town in the northwestern side of Quito. Tucanopy is a family run business that raised up because of their proffessional background as biologists and their intention to preserve their land as a natural protected area. The zip lining business brings them money to fund conservation projects. And brings them people to whom they can talk about the need to preserve such forests.

    @jay hope your galapagos trip was nice. You can do a tour of the area in Banos — you can do rafting, kayaking, biking and relax at the hotsprings if you like. We can hel pyou with that. Depending on what you want to do, the cost might vary but the cool thing is that we are super flexible in terms of itinerary so traveling with kids in Ecuador will not be an issue.

    Please email us at info @ barefootexpeditions.com so that we can work out the details.

    Canopy is a very adventurous game. It requires lot of effort both physical and mental. It is a great experience to learn about canopy in beautiful locations that adds excitement to your learning.

    I would love to zip line in Ecuador!  The hardest part for me is getting up to the platform.  How many ladders to the top?
