Ecuador is one of the smallest countries in South America but it has more than its fair share of the continent’s diverse wonders. From the dramatic Andes and the Amazon Rainforest to the wealth of history in its fascinating indigenous cultures and Inca remains, Ecuador is a remarkable land of contrasts with so much to offer adventurous families.

We have included all activities in the holiday price to help you and your family appreciate these natural surroundings in a thrilling way. Get mountain biking down volcanoes, explore the lush cloud forest, ride on horseback through the Cotopaxi National Park, and white-water raft through the Amazon Rainforest. There will also be time to explore the capital of Quito with its colonial buildings and bustling markets.

The family activity itinerary then moves you to the incomparable Galápagos Islands. The world famous wildlife and award-winning national parks need little introduction, surpassing all expectations.

You will spend four nights on the islands, in specially designed eco-friendly hotels, experiencing a range of activities including snorkelling, mountain biking, and hiking amongst the area’s stunning land and marine wildlife.

This adventure to an extraordinary part of the world is sure to create holiday memories your family will cherish forever.
