Straddling the equator, Ecuador is one of the most enchanting countries in Latin America, overflowing with natural beauty and home to proud indigenous cultures and colourful markets. While Ecuador has for many years been known primarily for the Galapagos Islands, so much more is on offer for those who decide to visit this amazing country. Mainland Ecuador can easily be split into three regions: the Amazon, the highlands and the coast. It offers wild landscapes including smouldering volcanoes, hummingbird-filled cloud forests and Amazon jungle that is home to some of the greatest biodiversity anywhere in the world. Ecuador is also, of course, the place to experience the incredible Galapagos Islands.
Ecuador also encompasses the territories of a variety of indigenous peoples, ranging from the Quechua of the Andes mountains to Amerindians living in their ancestral lands in the Amazonian rainforest. Our trips will enable you to experience the beauty of the country and meet and learn from those who call it home.
