Ecuador Holidays Galapagos Cruise Tours Quito Vacations Peru Colombia

Ecuador Holidays + Galapagos Cruise + Quito

Our Ecuador holidays explore one of the smallest countries in South America, but its diversity, natural beauty and its people are exceptional. This hospitable place takes its name from the equator, which runs through the north of the country, just missing the capital of Quito.
 
A Galapagos Cruise is the reason most people visit this beautiful country, but do leave enough time for tours of historic Quito and its nearby Cloud Forest, which is a magnet for birders. Visit the indigenous market at Otavalo and explore the Avenue of the Volcanoes with its beautiful Andean snow capped mountains, travelling by road or by train. The Amazon is within easy reach by light aircraft and Ecuador holidays combine well with vacations to neighbouring Peru & Colombia.
 
The volcanic Galapagos Islands in the Pacific Ocean are a two hour flight away and this world famous haven for birds and marine life has to be seen to be believed. Giant tortoises, land and marine iguana and blue footed boobies are just a few of their 'Big 15' which live and breed here in total safety, oblivious to the constant flow of visitors. Each Galapagos cruise stops at a different island every day, with a few live-aboard options for scuba divers at one of the best dive sites on earth.

More information on Ecuador holidays, Galapagos cruise, tours to Quito & vacations that combine with Peru & Colombia:
 
Quito is the starting point of most Ecuador holidays, with its World Heritage old town centre and busy but friendly market atmosphere. At 2,850 metres above sea level it is one of the highest capital cities in the world, with views of the Andes to match. Don’t miss the impressive monument at La Mitad del Mundo (the Middle of the World) at latitude zero, with its interesting cultural museum situated on the equator.
 
To the south of Quito two parallel chains of mountains, the Avenue of the Volcanoes, stretch for over three hundred miles towards the pretty colonial town of Cuenca. On Ecuador holidays & tours this area is a favourite spot for walking, riding and climbing. Eight of Ecuador’s ten highest peaks are found here, including Tungurahua, and the perfect volcanic cones of Cotapaxi and Chimborazo.
 
Before your Galapagos cruise, you can travel this region by road or by rail on the spectacular Tren Crucera (cruise train) that navigates through a series of intricate switchbacks, aptly named the Devil’s Nose, as it journeys between Quito and Guayaquil. You stay in small haciendas on your vacations, whilst enjoying incredible views and sampling the market towns for which the Avenue of the Volcanoes is justly famous. Horse riding vacations in this region are also popular.
 
In most South America countries the Amazon jungle is never far away and Ecuador holidays are no exception. It occupies the entire eastern half of the country. The best way to experience this extraordinary environment is to stay in one of lodges found in the national parks, which come with expert guides. The rainforests and higher cloud forests are astonishing in their biodiversity and sheer abundance of colourful tropical birdlife and jungle wildlife, so be prepared for some early starts, take your wet gear and get ready for the experience of a lifetime!
 
For somewhere completely different, the vibrant port town of Guayaquil on the Pacific coast is a revelation. This commercial hub and university city has seen massive investment and the river front, lively bars and cafes, growing arts scene, not to mention the fabulous seafood, make this an up and coming go-to place before or after your Galapagos cruise.
 
Like their neighbours in Peru and Colombia, the people of Ecuador are warm and welcoming, with the Andes and the Amazon provide a link between these three unique and beautiful countries. Why not extend your Ecuador holiday & Galapagos cruise to visit one or both of them while you are in this unforgettable part of the world?
