Ecuador

Tailor-made Holidays to Ecuador

The Galapagos Enchanted Islands, Andean Mountains and Amazon Rainforest


Ecuador, named after its position on the Equator, is fames for the Galapagos Islands archipelago isolated far in the Pacific ocean and with a unique wildlife that remains friendly to humans. The country boasts pristine Amazon Rainforest, the high Andean mountains with stunning landscapes, villages and busy local markets, a vibrant traditional culture and the coastal lowlands.    

  

Ecuadorean Amazon

 

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.


Andes in Ecuador

 

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.


The Galapagos Islands


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.
