A luxury trip to the Galapagos is an experience of a lifetime. The wildlife, both in the water and out of it, is breathtaking. We have earmarked some favourite small luxury boats and eco-lodges to ensure you get the most out of your trip.
Ecuador teems with life. It encompasses volcanoes and cloud forests, a buzzing colonial capital, rare biodiversity, indigenous markets and rich Andean culture. Indeed, while the Islands have long been the region’s main draw, Quito’s gleaming airport, the arrival of some impressive eco-lodges and spoiling highland haciendas make the mainland equally impressive.
We suggest spending 5-7 nights in the Galapagos before moving on to explore Quito, the highlands and rainforest. There are volcanoes to climb, Andean towns and villages to explore and some first class horse riding. Those interested in surfing will find some of the best breaks in South America on Ecuador’s Pacific coast. Don’t forget to pick up a panama hat in Cuenca, made from toquilla straw – we’ll be sure to send you to our favourite craftsman.
If time allows, we would suggest combining with neighbouring Colombia or Peru. A luxury trip to Ecuador works as well for a honeymoon as it does for families and groups of friends. Get in touch and one of our team will be happy to answer any questions.
