Join your expert local tour leader for a once-in-a-lifetime adventure holiday travelling through volcanic mountain ranges, lush rainforest and traditional colonial villages on a small group tour to Ecuador.
Discover a wide variety of flora and fauna, birdlife, wild horses and deer living high up in the Ecuador Andes. The snow-covered cone of Cotopaxi soars into the sky on the horizon and a shallow glacial lake ripples in its shadow. Jump in a canoe to go in search of toucan and monkey along the verdant banks of the Amazon rainforest and relax with a refreshing glass of ‘chicha’ prepared by indigenous locals.
For the ultimate wildlife adventure, head to the Galapagos Islands. Spot giant tortoise, large iguana, lizard, and abundant exotic bird species. Dive into the azure-blue sea to see ray gliding through the ocean and swim with sea-lion pups in the calm waters of Isla Lobos.
