Intro

With a tropical coastline along its west, impenetrable Amazonian jungle to the east, and the towering snow-capped peaks of the Andes slicing through the middle, Ecuador manages to squeeze every aspect of the continent's amazingly varied landscape into one unassuming country. 

Head up into the Andes for picture-perfect views of towering glacial volcanoes set amongst verdant valleys that are dotted with charming highland towns. Experience a melting pot of cultures and admire the beautiful Spanish influences of colonial Quito and the charming cobblestone streets of Cuenca. Browse traditional textiles in indigenous local markets and marvel at the ancient Inca temples of Ingapirca Ruins.

Discover Ecuador's incredible biodiversity and why it is renowned as a wildlife lover's paradise. Spot the colourful flashes of exotic birds in the cloud forest of Mindo, one of the country's best-kept secrets, and explore one of the most biologically diverse regions in the world within the Yasuní National Park. Finally, experience Ecuador's pride and joy - the Galápagos Islands, one of the world's most pristine and fragile ecosystems. Follow in the footsteps of Charles Darwin, and meet giant tortoises, knarly marine iguanas and a wide array of unique wildlife.
