About Active Adventures South America - Ecuador & The Galapagos Islands

We believe that scenery needs to be experienced, not seen through a bus window. We'll take you to discover, whether by foot, bike or kayak, the arresting views from Cotapaxi Volcano; local family life in the Amazon Jungle; giant tortoise on Santa Cruz Island; an underwater dreamland at Kicker Rock - there's more than enough to do and see here to fill several bucket lists.

About Active South America - Ecuador

We run our own trips, suitable for real people.

You don't need to be a triathlete to enjoy our adventures; we offer a variety of different options to suit everyone. We take real people, who may or may not have a great deal of experience in the outdoors, to the most scenic and rewarding parts of Ecuador and the Galapagos Islands. Clients on a typical trip will have a range of experience - from folks who have spent a couple of days in the backcountry in their lives, to those who spend most weekends in the hills.  

Not your average South American vacation package! 
About Active South America

Interested? We have happy clients all over the world who have taken our Ecuador and Galapagos Islands trips who'd love to tell you all about it! For referrals, please call or email us and we'd be happy to put you in touch with some of our previous clients.

An Active South America trip is not a scenic tour, but you'll go to incredible places. It's not a triathlon, but you'll get your heart rate up and the endorphins flowing. It's not a lecture on history and wildlife, but you'll gain personal insights from guides who know the places you'll visit like the back of their hand.

Simply said: Excellent

We’ve booked our trip with Active Adventures from NZ but ended up with Galakiwi Adventures as the implementing party. A bit confusing at the beginning but it turned out quite well.
Our trip through the Galapagos Islands started in San Cristobal, followed by Floreana, Isabela and ended in Santa Cruz.
We booked an all-inclusive trip and it turned out to be a very good decision. In fact we realized only after a few days how convenient is was to have everything organized for you and how much time you can actually safe. Starting with swimming gear that is provided as part of the package. Transportation to the ferry, getting on & off, having the transportation ready when you arrive, all those organizational aspects are taken care off which makes travelling from island to island very easy and smooth. Then hotels are ready, check in & out done super fast, luggage’s pick up etc. all organized. Lunch and/or dinners arranged in advance to maximize the vacation time and reduce wasted time to a bare minimum. What else to say besides that the organization was simply said excellent!!!
Then we had Zambo our tour guide, a fantastic & very knowledgeable person.
Not only questions from adults were not a problem for him, our kids and the other families kids who were also part of the group constantly came up with all sorts of questions and somehow, Zambo always had an answer.
All of this made it a great vacation; we enjoyed it a lot
