Clymb Adventures Partner Spotlight: Ecuador Pure Life

topper_02 (1)

Ecuador Pure Life was found­ed in ear­ly 2012 by Hen­ry Sisa and Chris­t­ian Valen­cia, two cer­ti­fied tour lead­ers and nat­u­ral­ist guides with over a decade of expe­ri­ence in the trav­el indus­try across Ecuador and the greater con­ti­nent. Hen­ry and Chris­t­ian spent years dis­cov­er­ing the incred­i­ble bio­di­ver­si­ty of the Ama­zon rainforest.

They were espe­cial­ly inspired by the jaguar — a rarely seen, almost myth­i­cal wild cat found only in remote pock­ets of Cen­tral and South Amer­i­ca. Learn­ing about this near threat­ened species, the duo felt the need to share with oth­ers a pas­sion for the con­ser­va­tion of their coun­try’s great­est nat­ur­al treasures.

Today, the 100% local­ly owned and oper­at­ed orga­ni­za­tion con­tin­ues to live by its mis­sion: to share the nat­ur­al beau­ty and splen­dor of Ecuador with all vis­i­tors and make every adven­ture an unfor­get­table experience.

This South Amer­i­can nation boasts the world’s high­est bio­di­ver­si­ty per square mile, includ­ing hun­dreds of endem­ic species that can be found nowhere else on the plan­et. Ecuador is com­prised of four main geo­graph­ic zones: the high­lands, or “sier­ra”, which house the Andes and most of the coun­try’s vol­ca­noes, the “ori­ente” con­sist­ing of Ama­zon jun­gle and pro­tect­ed zones for indige­nous tribes like the Kich­wa and Huao­rani, the coast which yields bananas, rice, and fish­eries, and final­ly, the insu­lar region host­ing the fas­ci­nat­ing arch­i­pel­ago of the Gala­pa­gos Islands. The diverse land­scapes shap­ing these regions sim­ply beg to host out­door recreation.

Expe­ri­ence a once-in-a-life­time adven­ture from moun­tains to sea, expe­ri­enc­ing the high­lights of main­land Ecuador as well as the fas­ci­nat­ing Gala­pa­gos Islands.
