Tours in Ecuador

It is often the smallest countries that reveal the greatest variety. Although Ecuador is – by South American standards – a small country both in area and in population, there’s a wealth of experiences on offer within its borders. On Ecuador trips, there’s a lot to take in, from the Andes to the Amazon Rainforest, some of the best Pacific beaches in South America and even the rich biodiversity of the Galapagos Islands.

The Pan-American Highway, which meanders through the central part of the country, is known as the Avenue of the Volcanoes, and much of the highlands are quite fertile here: the most typical view you’ll see on Ecuador tours will be of brightly snow-capped volcanic cones jutting out above the high páramo (the high-altitude moorland unique to tropical America) and the heavily terraced and cultivated fields of the rich farmlands. It’s an adventure-seeker’s paradise and Earth Wanderer runs a range of exciting walking and wildlife Ecuador holidays.
