Ecuador is a country packed with astounding biodiversity, great contrasts of scenery, a rich indigenous heritage and wonderful history and culture.
Family Adventure Travel in Ecuador & the Galapagos
Ecuador, with its vibrant cities filled with stunning colonial architecture and Inca treasures, and its Amazon rainforest teeming with endless waterways and wildlife, has so much natural and cultural variety that it will leave you breathless. And a blend of lush and volcanic scenery serves as a backdrop for virtually any adrenaline-charged adventure one can imagine: white water rafting, mountain biking, mountain climbing, trekking. The list goes on and on. An Ecuador family vacation is a unique journey of history, culture, food and fantastic natural vistas.
But of course it is for the Galapagos that most travelers come for an adventure in Ecuador. The islands may inspire you to think differently about the world. This is arguably the most compelling natural spot in the world, a place where the animal inhabitants rule. Here you can snorkel among penguins, sea kayak with sharks, trek over active volcanoes, relax on sandy beaches amidst sea lions and meet blue footed boobies – it really is an otherworldly adventure.
