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 ancient Inca remains, Ecuador is a remarkable land of contrasts with so much to offer adventurous families.

We have included activities to help you explore these natural surroundings in a thrilling way including mountain biking down volcanoes, exploring the lush cloud forest, horseback riding through the Cotopaxi National Park and white water rafting through the Amazon Rainforest. There will also be time to explore the capital of Quito with its colonial buildings and bustling markets.

Group sizes and minimum numbers

Most of our holidays require a minimum number of participants to operate. Minimum numbers are detailed on each holiday page and are always approximate.

For private departures you may also be joined by other guests during the activities unless you have discussed specific private activities with us.

In the unlikely event that your chosen date has not reached the required minimum numbers nine weeks before your scheduled departure date we will contact you and discuss the various options available to you. We will always do all we can to operate a holiday and in some cases we may be able to operate the holiday by combining your itinerary with that of other guests for some activities (this may mean that the maximum group size is increased but this will be discussed in full with you).

If we are unable to operate the holiday then you will be offered the chance to transfer to an alternative holiday or date (subject to availability). If the alternative is more expensive you will be asked to pay the difference, if it is cheaper then you will be reimbursed. You will also be offered the option to cancel and receive a full refund of all monies paid.
