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.
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!
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.
