Do you wish to start married life in the company of some of the most fantastic animal species and ecosystems on the planet? Cruise the bucket-list Galápagos Islands, take a journey through the steamy Amazon Basin and bed down in the dense cloud forest at a Biodiversity Reserve.
Mist and myth-shrouded Quito, the second highest capital in the world, is a magically colourful place. It’s a romantic city in which to potter and has some divine hidden quarters to explore with flower markets, hat ateliers and cosy restaurants. Visit the city’s ornate cathedrals and Baroque architecture of the Old Town, and enjoy spectacular views of the city and surrounding mountains from the top of Panecillo Hill.
But it’s the wild interior of the country that really makes this trip a magical honeymoon adventure. The Amazon Basin is a true treasure trove of biodiversity. The best way to explore this jungle realm is by navigating down the river on a fabulous, state of the art vessel, the MV Anakonda.
Ecuador & Galapagos Honeymoon Highlights
- Cruise through the Amazon Basin to explore the extraordinary diversity of the jungle.
- Explore the rich architecture of Quito and take in this thriving historical city.
- Take a Galápagos cruise with a naturalist guide, visiting the individual islands by panga to see the unique endemic species and snorkelling amongst the rich marine life.
- Experience the Mashpi Rainforest Biodiversity Reserve surrounded by a profusion of plant, bird and animal species.
There is something deeply romantic about waking up in a new place in a cosy cabin each morning, and nowhere more astounding than the Galápagos Islands. Every day offers a different island, bay or cove to explore and different species to discover. Watch blue-footed boobies prance around statuesque rocks, snorkel with sea-lions as they blow bubbles around you. Taking a stroll across the moon-like landscape you will wait for the ginormous tortoise to trundle across your path.
Ecuador’s hidden wildlife gem is the Mashpi Rainforest Biodiversity Reserve. Located in dense cloud forest it’s a biodiversity hotspot. You could spend your days admiring a staggering 500 species of bird fluttering through the canopy and monkeys, peccaries and even puma make their homes inside the reserve, crisscrossed with waterfalls between dramatic, verdant hills. Perched high in the cloud forest, the lodge is surrounded by a profusion of plant species, from ferns and bromeliads to hundreds of orchid species, many newly-discovered. We can’t think of a more enchanting start to married life.
