This is a classic tour of northern and central Ecuador with plenty of activity included; hiking at Laguna Cuicocha, horseback riding at Cotopaxi, hiking in the Quilotoa loop, and a great rafting tour in the Amazon. For those looking for a bit of culture and activity while seeing some of the best of Ecuador, this is a great option. Accommodations vary during the tour; some special places are included, others are simple but comfortable. Add a Galapagos or Amazon Jungle tour, or work in a climb of one of Ecuador's 5000+ meter peaks during the tour.

We will tailor this trip to you. Change anything - from excursions to accommodation to places visited.
