Magic River Tours is a tour operator under Ecuadorian-German management, specializing in canoeing tours into the Cuyabeno Wildlife Reserve, an area covering 603,380 hectares of pristine primary rainforest in Ecuador’s northern Amazon Region.
The absence of a noisy outboard motor increases the chances of observing wildlife and, at the same time, reduces the impact of tourism. With Magic River Tours, you will be able to hear all of the incredible sounds made by birds, insects, monkeys and many other animals. Our tours accommodate experienced canoeists as well as active travelers without any previous paddling experience. Our primary goal is to offer tours that bring you into the closest possible contact with the unique nature and wildlife that the Amazon rainforest has to offer.
The Cuyabeno Reserve
The Cuyabeno Reserve is a network of meandering rivers, glassy black lakes, and expansive primary rain forests accessible by canoes. The Cuyabeno lakes are expansive openings in the dense rainforest with smooth reflective waters full of fish life and full of birds and wildlife on its green shores. The Cuyabeno River and its tributaries cut through the dense Amazonian rain forest of equally impressive biodiversity.
With a little luck, we’ll float by members of the Siona indigenous tribe fishing with their families or washing clothes in the river.
