From immense Andean peaks to dense Amazon rainforest and the wonderful Galápagos
Many travellers see Ecuador as just a jumping-off point for a Galápagos cruise. Yet, this small Latin American country packs its own punch. You can explore Andean peaks and Amazon rainforest. You can visit paradise beaches or attractive villages that seem frozen in time. At Cotopaxi, there is one of the world’s tallest active volcanoes.
Your Galápagos holiday is actually just a part of the unforgettable landscapes of Ecuador. Despite its proximity to the equator the weather in Ecuador is mild. It feels like spring throughout the year. You’ll be as comfortable wandering through indigenous markets as you'll be trekking the mountains.
Ecuador is, indeed, the perfect place for a Galápagos holiday or tour. The Galápagos Islands lie 1,000km off Quito. This volcanic archipelago inspired Darwin’s theory of evolution. Our specialist Galápagos cruises take place on expedition-grade vessels, led by professional researcher guides. Let us take you swimming alongside curious sea lion, dolphin or penguin. You can watch the giant Galápagos tortoise make its way along the beach, or snorkel above sunken volcanic craters.
Our holidays are designed in collaboration with local contacts we’ve developed over many years. Our select range of accommodations includes charming haciendas. And, of course, your itinerary can be tailor made.
