Santa Cruz
Galapagos on land - Finch Bay
£644pp

How do you round off a busy holiday in Ecuador, Peru or Colombia? You might think a trip to the Galápagos Islands a trifle ambitious – not to say costly. And a cruise may well be. But if you have a few days to spare you can stay at a congenial hotel on one of the larger, more interesting and varied islands, Santa Cruz, where in addition to a wide array of the famous trusting Galápagos wildlife, you can experience the verdant volcanic highlands, the white sand beaches and the shops and restaurants of the laid-back capital Puerto Ayora.

The property has a beautiful setting at Punta Estrada, across the bay from the town.

Day 1: Fly from the Ecuadorian mainland to Baltra in the Galapagos Islands. Transfer to your hotel Finch bay, on the outskirts of Puerto Ayora.

Days 2,3: You have two full days where your wishes are catered for individually. The hotel organises an impressive choice of activities and excursions including snorkelling, diving, sea kayaking, mountain biking, hiking and day trips by boat to surrounding islands. We recommend a visit to the Charles Darwin Research Station which is home to 11 species of tortoise.

Day 4: Depart for the Ecuadorian mainland and connect with your international flight.

Breakfast only.
NB: the cost of flights from Ecuador, Peru or Colombia to the Galápagos Islands are not included in the price.

Sacha Lodge
Ecuadorian Amazon
£1,073pp

The rainforest of the Amazon of Ecuador, whence spring rivers which flow down to the Amazon proper, is conveniently accessible from Quito. Following a short flight and canoe trip you arrive at Sacha Lodge to begin your jungle adventures.

Day 1: A 35min flight takes you over the snow-capped Andes to Puerto Francisco de Orellana, known locally as Coca. Please note that luggage is restricted to 20kg.

On arrival, it is a short transfer to the docks where motorised dugout canoes are waiting to take you down the Río Napo, the largest river in the Ecuadorian Amazonia. Head deep into the rainforest - with opportunities to spot an array of wildlife along the riverbanks – to the reserve where Sacha Lodge is situated (2.5hrs). You’ll then set off on a guided expedition along a raised boardwalk through dense flooded palm forest to Lake Pichicocha (30mins) before crossing the motionless black-water lagoon by canoe to arrive at the lodge.

Day 2: There’s a varied menu of activities and excursions to choose from at the lodge. They are conducted in small groups led by an English-speaking naturalist guide, and take place in the early morning when the wildlife is at its most active, in the afternoon as the sun sets leaving a mellow glow draped over the forest, and at night when the nocturnal insects and frogs join in a melodious chorus.

Day 3: Waterborne adventures include a trip to a parrot lick, where the colourful and agitated birds gather to feed. There’s also a 300m canopy walkway suspended 30m above the jungle floor, giving you a canopy-level view of the wildlife which inhabits the trees, while an overall panoramic view is available from the top of the observation tower. Go fishing for piranha, and at night, set out on the dark waters in search of alligators.

Breakfast daily, full board days 1-3.

Mindo
Mindo cloud forest
£1,133pp

Mindo, Ecuador’s premier bird watching region, is only a 90 minute drive from the chilly highland capital with volcano views as the road descends over 1,300m and the vegetation is transformed from cold-resistant grassland to lush, humid cloud forest. This accessibility, and the chance of not only observing wildlife and a mass of exuberant plants but also taking part in a choice of exhilarating outdoor adventures, makes it an attractive destination for all lovers of nature and the outdoors: families, singles, couples and friends of all ages. There are a number of eco-friendly lodges welcoming visitors. 

For this holiday extension we have chosen for your base the simple and sociable El Monte Lodge, close to the village but with a real wilderness feel.  We have hand-picked some excursions for you, but in your free time you might take various guided adventures including guided nature walks, visit butterfly farms and even an artisan chocolate “factory”. More adventurous options (charged extra) include downhill mountain biking, river rafting, tubing and zip-lines.  

Overnight at the hotel Casona de la Ronda in Quito.

Day 2:  Transfer to Mindo and el Monte Lodge. Afternoon at leisure: you might explore the nature trails or take an optional excursion.

Day 3:  Take a guided walk at dawn to visit the cock-of-the-rock lek, an area of trees where scores of these colourful, exotic birds congregate to feed.  Afternoon at leisure. 

Day 4: Morning at leisure. After lunch visit a house where 24 species of hummingbird are known to frequent the feeders in the back of a private house. The proprietor is an expert on the birds and their songs. Return to Quito.  

Full board days 2-3, breakfast and lunch day 4.
