OVERVIEW

For dramatic landscapes, unique wildlife encounters and distinctive islands, look no further than our Ecuador and Galapagos tour. Your journey starts in Quito, Ecuador’s capital city, where you will be introduced to the country’s cultural and historical splendour. From here, you will head into the verdant Andes Mountains for a voyage through cloud forests, artisanal towns and to the striking two-toned Cotopaxi volcano that soars above Limpiopungo Lake. You will then fly to the Galapagos Islands, where you will spend the next four days. Search for giant tortoises, tip-toe through flocks of vibrant birds and marvel at pint-sized penguins as you hop across the Galapagos archipelago. Be sure to relax on the post-card perfect beaches before returning to the mainland.
