HIGHLIGHTS OF ECUADOR & GALAPAGOS
Providing, unquestionably, the best wildlife experience in South America. In the Galapagos, getting up close and personal with unusual and extraordinarily tame creatures such as the marine iguana (the only lizard to swim in the ocean) and the resplendent giant tortoise is all but guaranteed.
Soaking up some seriously wild and beautiful scenery. Some of the beaches, such as pristine Tortuga Bay in Santa Cruz, rival the best in the whole of Latin America.
Enjoying the most fulfilling Amazon rainforest experience in South America; the eco-lodges in the Ecuadorian Amazon represent responsible tourism at its best.
Exploring the magnificent Avenue of the Volcanoes, a valley flanked with mighty, snow-capped volcanic peaks that stretches for 200km between Quito and Cuenca. Unforgettable.
Bargaining for artefacts in colourful markets, including the famous textile market in Otavalo on Saturday mornings.
