Napo Province hosts some breathtaking cloud forests, p├íramo (grasslands), and one of Ecuador's most beautiful snow-capped volcanoes, Antisana. It is also one of the easiest points to visit the Amazon Basin from Quito. Its capital, Tena, features several launch-off points into the rainforest. You can easily plan your jungle trip from Tena along with any number of day-trips like kayaking, rafting, hiking and birdwatching. For travelers with a limited amount of time to see the rainforest, this is your best option. However, if you have at least four days, a more remote tour is recommended. Buses run regularly from Quito and Ba├▒os to and from Tena.
