Tailor-made Holidays to Ecuador
Ecuador and the Galapagos may be one of the smallest countries in South America, but offers an extraordinarily diverse range of experiences; from the dramatic mountain scenery of the Andes to the richest wildlife of the Amazon and the Galapagos Islands.
For Many, Ecuador is simply the gateway to reach the celebrated Galapagos Island but we think you should take the time to explore this fascinating country while you are there. Beyond the Galapagos Islands, Ecuador has much to offer from its charming colonial capital to the unique cloud forest at Mashpi, the extraordinary Avenue of the Volcanoes and colonial Cuenca. Travelling by road this private journey reveals the varied and breathtaking landscape of this small but beautiful country and its rich wildlife and culture.
A trip to the Galápagos is an unforgettable experience, considered one of the most exceptional wildlife destinations on the planet. Unique species of wildlife in such sheer abundance are, quite simply, unmissable. Here at Galapagos you can snorkel with penguins and sea lions, watch 200-kg tortoises lumbering through giant cactus forest, and enjoy the courtship display of the blue footed booby and frigate bird, all in startling close up.
Ecuador offers wonderful variety for traveller. The Andean highlands feature beautiful colonial cities, snow-capped volcanoes, historic haciendas and colourful, authentic markets. Highlights include the tropical rainforest of the Amazon, superb flora and fauna in the cloud and the renowned wildlife of the Galapagos Island.
From the Pacific coast to the Andes to the Amazon jungle, there’s never a bad time to visit Ecuador. Its location right on the equator helps to stabilize the year-round temperatures meaning there is little seasonal variability, other than the dry season (from May to December) and the wet season (from late December through April).
