Ecuador is all about its Andean heartland and its pristine Amazon jungle and its cities house some of South America's finest colonial masterpieces. Both Quito and Cuenca, home of the Panama hat, have the most beautiful churches and plazas on the continent. Ecuador is best known for the Galapagos, and if you start or finish this tour in Quito, you must try to add on a trip to the islands. The Ecuadorian Andes are both verdant and magnificent and it is well worth spending time, trekking, climbing or rafting here before heading into the rain forests of the Amazon. Crossing into Northern Peru, you leave the greenery behind you and head into dry deserts with the ancient civilisations and monuments of the Moche and the Chimu Indians; Indeed Chan Chan , capital of the Chimu's is the largest Adobe city in the world. Towering above the desert are the mighty Cordillera of the snow capped Andes, ideal for trekking in the Huaraz region. This trip visits the Huasquila Ecolodge, which promote ecotourism in the area.

  • A slow paced trip allowing us to explore the many faces of Ecuador & northern Peru. Small hotels, hostels and camping.
