Orchids in the Wild™ Ecotours
An orchid blooming in its native habitat is one of the miracles of the natural world that every orchid lover should see at least once.
The OCA offers trips to see Orchids in the Wild™, including the OCA reserves. Over the past 15+ years we have organized trips to Mexico (Chiapas), Brazil, Ecuador, Colombia, southern China (Guang Xi, Yunnan), western China (northern Yunnan, Sichuan), Thailand, Papua New Guinea, France, Greece, and Madagascar. These trips are a lot of fun, and you will come home with many wonderful orchid photos. They are also very educational: once you see how orchids grow in nature, you will be better able to provide the conditions that will make them thrive for you. Orchids in the Wild™ tours take you to places you would never see otherwise.
We have temporarily suspended Orchids in the Wild™ tours due to the ongoing pandemic.
When it is safe to travel again, we are planning trips to Western Australia, Madagascar, Sikkim, Papua New Guinea and Switzerland. Future trips will be announced first to current OCA members, and information will be available on this website. We all are looking forward to resuming Orchids in the Wild™ trips!
