Ecuador and the Galapagos Islands offer everything the spirited traveller could wish for. From astonishing wildlife in the Galapagos, fascinating and spectacular Spanish colonial cities and towns, abundant biodiversity in the cloud forests and everywhere a rich cultural and culinary heritage.

This extraordinary destination delivers an intimate experience with nature and culture. Come face to face with the fearless and endemic wildlife of the Galapagos where giant tortoises, blue footed boobys, albatross, marine iguanas and playful seals thrive. Stroll over incredible lava flows and snorkel amongst rich marine life or just wander among the incredibly friendly wildlife.

On mainland Ecuador we explore small market towns in the Andean highlands where indigenous Ecuadoreans maintain their rich culture and visit the World Heritage Cities and colonial masterpieces of Quito and Cuenca. We stay in at the award winning Mashpi Lodge described as a cocoon of luxury in the clouds, where contemporary design moves in harmony with nature. And Hacienda Zuleta; a colonial era heritage working farm that dates back to the 17th century.

This journey of immersion into nature and culture should be at the top of any experiential traveller’s bucket list.

  • A trip of such diversity and adventure….from the snowy wilderness and splendid scenery of Patagonia, to the strange beauty of the Galapagos and its inhabitants, to the extraordinary diversity of the Ecuadorean highlands with its volcanoes, colourful markets and rainforests. Of course the food highlights in Lima were amazing and a fitting end to the trip.
