Overview & Highlights

Discover Ecuador’s most breathtaking natural scenery and cultural wonders on this covid-conscious Trailblazer holiday. Based just outside the capital, Quito, you’ll be able to discover the region’s stunning natural beauty from the snow-capped peaks of Cotopaxi volcano to the verdant cloud forest with its richly unique flora and fauna.

You’ll have the chance to uncover local traditions by experiencing the diverse Andean cultures where ancient Inca, Spanish and indigenous communities come together in Quito and nearby Otavalo.

No trip to Ecuador is complete without visiting one of the world’s most iconic destinations, the Galapagos Islands, where you will spend a week on board an intimate cruise allowing you to discover what makes the archipelago so unique.

Our Trailblazer Ecuador holiday stays in fewer locations, each carefully selected to allow visits to the country’s highlights whilst avoiding the crowds.
