These are our favorite journeys to Ecuador that provide an excellent overview of the best places, cultures and activities in the Ecuadorian mainland and Galapagos. A trip into the highlands will put you right in the heart of the central Andes, including stops in the renowned Otavalo indigenous market, the colonial capital city of Quito, and visits to the towering peaks like Chimborazo & Cotopaxi. As you move eastward, you will experience the transition cloud forests as you descend into the tropical Amazon basin, where wildlife and well preserved indigenous cultures await. Or, fly out to the enchanting Galapagos Islands for a wildlife exploration or cruise unlike anything else on the planet, including snorkeling, hiking, and some of the best birding in the world.
