This is a trip for those interested in the astonishing variety of mainland Ecuador - Spanish and Inca history, Paramo highland, mangrove systems, rainforest, volcanoes and glaciers. It is a busy trip, taking in a huge amount of scenery, flora, fauna and history in two weeks, but enormously rewarding.
Many of the areas visited on the trip are at high altitude and some short walks (normally 30 minutes to an hour) are planned - a reasonable level of fitness will help your enjoyment of this trip.
Normal group size and age
Normally 5 to 16, plus leader. Minimum age 16.
The vast majority of Exodus adventures are adult group holidays. Groups are always small in size. We strongly believe that this adherence to small groups means a better experience for all; more time with your guide, less waiting around and a reduced impact on the communities and environments visited.
Each group is generally made up of like-minded travellers - with singles, couples and friends all joining in together. All these trips are suitable for single travellers, but if you prefer to travel with clients booking individually, please see our Solo Departures page.
In order to provide a more accurate grading system, where a trip falls between two grades we use an intermediate or split grade, for example Leisurely/Moderate. Occasionally, there are optional activities available en route, in this case the optional grade is indicated in brackets, for example Grade Challenging (climb Tough+). Clearly, conditions may differ from region-to-region or month-to-month and as such the information given on these pages is designed to act as a guide only. In all cases you should refer to the respective holiday's Trip Notes for further details.
Mixed Activities: Activities may range from the ordinary (for example walking, cycling or whitewater rafting) to the damn right extraordinary (including caving, camel riding or canyoning).
Wildlife: Trips may be wholly wildlife focused, or contain an element of wildlife viewing within a less specific itinerary.
