Ecuador and the Galapagos Islands Adventure Tours

Snorkel with sea lions as you travel between land and sea in Ecuador

Ecuador (which includes the Galapagos Islands) may be one of the smallest countries in South America, but its diversity might surprise you. This destination offers everything an adventurer could want including distinctive wildlife, world-class snorkelling and scuba diving, dense Amazon rainforests and magical cloud forests to hike in, lively markets to explore and a charming world heritage listed capital city.

We've got the best way to explore the Galapagos Islands - especially for landlubbers - and while you're in this part of the world, you won't want to miss the hiking, rafting, biking and caving on our mainland Ecuador adventure tour 'Tapir'. Did we mention a mild spring-like climate year-round and incredibly welcoming locals?
