Zip lining in Mindo

Canopy Zip Lining

Canopy Zip Lining is an amazing experience you should definitely try given the chance. Mindo cloud forest has amazing landscapes at every turn, and no better way of getting a panoramic view then from the tree tops! A safe infrastructure has been assembled throughout the forest connecting a network of Tyrolean traverse paths overlooking Mindo, the longest network connecting up to 12 different lines. An exhilarating and fun activity that will rush you with adrenaline, not suitable for the faint of heart.


River Tubing is another invigorating way of complimenting your visit to Mindo, inflatable inner tubes will be placed in rivers, all you have to do is let the stream take you and follow along …without falling over. Guaranteed fun and excitement all supervised by local experts that know the area and rivers. Travelers can choose the river intensity they think they can handle, one way or another a fresh towel will be in order by the end of your tubing experience.


Hiking through the cloud forest in Mindo will only enhance and add to the excitement along your tour. Activities like canopy zip lining will require about a 5 minute walk between paths, these are uneven and steep at times but completely rewarding with the amazing setting you find yourself in.

    Russ and i thought it would be a good idea to start off our time in Quito with something active, Mindo is lovely and great for outdoorsy stuff, activities for the tubing and rafting are expensive but we had fun. We were wasted by the time we got back, got some amazing pictures and enjoyed ourselves.
