Ecuador, named after its position on the Equator, is a small but incredibly diverse country which boasts Amazon Rainforest, Andes mountains, a vibrant traditional culture and the Galápagos Islands. Enjoy the amazing culture and sights on one of our Ecuador tours, specially designed to help you see the best of Ecuador - or let us create a holiday just for you with our Tailor Made service.
Ecuador has its own section of the
legendary Amazon rainforest, home to hundreds species of mammals,
thousands of birds and insects, many endemic to Ecuador. Ancient
trees, some over 400 years old, tower above, entangled with thick
lianas and supporting a huge variety of bromeliads. Wildlife apart,
this is also a cultural experience, where we meet local communities
who share their intricate knowledge of their surrondings; the
medicinal propierties of plants and their unique relationship with
the jungle. There are a selection of Amazon Lodges and River Cruises
which will allow you to get deep into this unique ecosystem.
Remote villages and colorful Indian
markets rest among the soaring cones of snowcapped volcanoes. The
towns and people retain a distinctive identity with fascinating
blends of Inca and colonial influences, and many can be visited as
a day-trip from Quito. Click here for a selection of our excursions
and short tours in the Andes.
This stunning archipelago, Darwin's living laboratory of evolution, provides unique opportunities for viewing wildlife at close range. We offer a wide range of Cruises to suit all tastes and budgets, and which offer the best way of seeing the different islands.
