This family adventure holiday to Ecuador makes for some unforgettable wildlife experiences, from the biodiversity of the cloud forest to the curious creatures of the Galapagos.
Beginning in Quito, the Ecuadorian capital home to Spanish architecture and volcano cable cars, you’ll then head to the cloud forest for guided nature walks and rides on carriages through the forest canopy to spot toucans, monkeys and glass frogs, as well as hundreds of bird species.
You’ll then fly to the Galapagos Islands, one of the most extraordinary natural environments on earth, where creatures such as giant tortoises and marine iguanas thrive in stark, volcanic landscapes.
Your journey ends with a taste of traditional ranch life at a beautiful hacienda in the Ecuadorian Andes; here, you can horse ride, hike and mountain bike around a historic cattle farm.
This itinerary is great for families seeking a gentler wildlife experience: the Galapagos leg is hotel-based, meaning you can enjoy a wide range of activities at your own pace and avoid sea-sickness.
