Visit colonial cities, indigenous villages with busling local markets, the dense Amazon rainforest, breathtaking mountain peaks or the ecological marvel of the Galapagos Islands.

The soundtrack to Ecuador is a collection of great hits: the crunch of leaves under foot as an exotic animal wakes from its afternoon slumber, the piercing cries of colourful birds in the misty Amazon, the bellows of far-off smoldering volcanoes and the rhythmic clatter of sluggish trains rumbling along rickety mountain-side tracks.

There's the gentle ripple of Pacific coast waves lapping a tranquil golden beach, the flutter of pigeon wings in a leafy colonial era square, the hauntingly beautiful harmonies of traditional Andean music and the hustle and bustle of markets in sleepy hillside villages. Ecuador is a mosaic decorated with colonial gems and packed with miles upon miles of verdant rainforest. Best of all, are the magnificent Galápagos Islands waiting to be discovered on an expedition yacht that will take you close to nature and friendly wildlife.

We invite you to browse our selection of Ecuador and Galapagos holidays below. These itineraries have been carefully planned by our destination specialists to optimise your time and provide an in-depth perspective on Ecuador.
