Ecuador may be the smallest Andean nation but it is packed with the most spectacular scenery. Sitting on the equator between Colombia and Peru, Ecuador’s contrast in scenery is enough to startle any traveller.
From the icy tops of Chimborazo, to the tropical forest of Yasuni National Park and everywhere in between, Ecuador is home to all forms of life. The nature-minded, active traveller will feel right at home in Ecuador with an endless list of activities on offer such as hiking the Volcanic peak of Cotopaxi, snorkelling with sea lions in the Galapagos and discovering brilliant photo opportunities in the pristine Amazon Basin. The cloud forests in the north are sure to astound with their exquisite birdwatching opportunities, some of the best in the world. The quaint colonial cities of Cuenca and Quito provide the perfect settings to discover all there is about this wonderful country’s history.
