The best of mainland Ecuador: jungles, volcanoes, the coast and wildlife
Stunning Andean scenery, colonial architecture, Indian markets and verdant cloud forests are just the start.
Along the 'Avenue of the Volcanoes', we hike in Cotapaxi National Park 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 secrets including petroglyphs and abundant wildlife. Finally to the coast and a 'mini-Galapagos', home to sea lions, frigate birds, pelicans and boobies.
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.
