Ecuador is a delightful friendly country characterised by its incredible contrasts within a small area, ranging from high Andean plateaux and snowy volcanic peaks to the steamy low altitude rainforests running through the Amazon Basin. This itinerary celebrates that breadth of diversity to show you all the incredible landscapes and experiences that make up Ecuador. Explore colonial history and discover some of Ecuador’s colourful traditional communities in the Andes and in the jungle, as well as its diversity of wildlife and landscapes. If you have more time to travel, then do ask us about extending your holiday to also include the Galapagos Islands.
This itinerary takes in all the iconic highlights of mainland Ecuador. Beginning with a hacienda retreat close to the colourful market town of Otavalo, you continue onto the staggering biodiversity of the tropical Ecuadorian Amazon.

This is followed with some truly breath-taking drives through the dramatic Avenue of Volcanoes, interspersed with stops in attractive colonial towns and villages.
