Ecuador travel includes historic haciendas, abundant wildlife and hospitable locals. If you're an active adventure seeker, you can take an Ecuador tour that includes biking in a volcano's shadow, hiking in the Bellavista Cloudforest, whitewater rafting through the western Andes, and hiking among the volcanoes of Cotopaxi National Park. Or maybe your preferred Ecuador adventure is sea kayaking into the untamed depths of the Amazon jungle, where you'll meet monkeys, toucans, macaws, tapir, and perhaps the elusive jaguar. The colonial towns of Quito and Cuenca make for tamer Ecuador tours, where you can amble down cobblestone streets and shop at the local markets. Sacha Lodge provides for both the wilds of Ecuador and the vast hospitality here. Where else can you birdwatch in the Amazon while simultaneously relaxing in the bar and lounge? Of course, no trip to Ecuador is complete without visiting the famed Galapagos Islands. Call us to help you create your ideal trip or choose from our Ecuador tours below.
