The best of mainland Ecuador: wildlife, jungles, volcanoes and the coast
Stunning Andean scenery, colonial architecture, fascinating Indian markets and verdant cloud forests are just the start.
We drive down the Avenue of the Volcanoes with great views of the perfectly conical Cotopaxi and Chimborazo, before boarding the 'Devil's Nose' train for an incredible journey along its numerous switchbacks down the western Andean slopes. In the Amazon Rainforest we explore the jungle and its incredible biodiversity.
Finally, no visit to Ecuador would be complete without visiting the Pacific Coast where mangroves, frigatebirds, pelicans and dolphins await.
What makes this trip responsible?
The trip visits a number of fragile ecosystems including the Amazon Rainforest. To reduce our impact and to enhance the experience of our clients we only take a maximum of 16 in any group. We use predominantly locally owned and run accommodation and this helps contribute directly to the local communities. Local staff are employed and locally produced/sourced goods are bought for the accommodation so benefiting the wider community. During visits to the national parks we use local services and guides for our jungle walks and boat trips so helping to ensure that the local community receives economic benefits from our visits.
