Ecuador, the most versatile destination in South America

Ecuador  is highly listed in the world’s top 10 of most biodiverse places, and offers an amazing natural, geographical and cultural diversity. From the rainforests of the Amazon basin and the snowcapped volcanoes of the Andes mountain range to the beaches on the Pacific Coast and the unique animal paradise of the Galapagos islands. Discover this beautiful country in a tailor-made journey.



A trip to the Galapagos Archipelago is the dream of all wildlife enthusiasts. On the Enchanted Islands, where Charles Darwin developed his evolution theory, the animals don't have natural enemies and are not afraid of man. You can snorkel with sea lions, observe giant tortoises in its natural habitat, and swim with native penguins in the turquoise island waters of the Pacific. Hike through volcanic landscapes of lava rock and experience natural history in this animal paradise.
