Help Me Plan My Trip
Ecuador and the Galapagos Islands are a paradise for active outdoor adventures like hiking, trekking, mountain biking, whitewater rafting & sea kayaking. Zipline through the canopies of the rainforest in the company of monkeys, or swim alongside the pink river dolphins that characterize this part of the Amazon. If you prefer to experience the water from above, then rafting or kayaking are popular options. World class rapids that run out of the highlands and kayaking over the crystal waters of the Galapagos are amazing paddling experiences. Of course, the most natural way to see this country is without any equipment but the shoes on your feet on the many hikes & treks! Contact one of our Ecuador travel experts for help planning an active adventure.
