From the immense Amazon rainforest to the magnificent Andes mountains and from cosmopolitan cities to the remains of ancient Incan towns – this only scratches the surface of what this incredible country has to offer. See Ecuador from a different perspective: traverse valleys by cable car, hike to the summit of a volcano, and even swing over a deep canyon. Starting in Quito, the country’s atmospheric capital city, head into the Andes mountains to browse markets and meet locals before diving deep into the Amazon rainforest for scenic hikes and unforgettable views. Stand at the furthest point away from the centre of the earth on the Chimborazo Volcano’s summit and hurtle through the Andean valley on the most exhilarating train ride of your life.
Then you can choose to extend your trip and hop from island to island to discover the outstanding Galápagos archipelago, in just five days you will experience otherworldly landscapes and become acquainted with exceptional wildlife.
