Ecuador Trekking and Hiking Reviews

5 - Excellent
  • Jay
“This was a wonderful trip. From the moment we landed on San Cristobal, the adventure began. After a wonderful meal and introduction to the week ahead, we were off biking and then snorkeling with sea lions and sea turtles. The pace is consistent, but not overwhelming, with a reasonable amount of time to rest. Every meal was amazing, and the entire team was fun and also competent. Can't say enough good about our guides Pepo and Paolo. Everyone we interacted with was great. Of course the stars of the show are the islands and their wildlife, and they didn't disappoint. Can't wait for our next trip!”

“Traveling in Covid times is definitely difficult. But, this trip made all the problems, covid tests, hoops to jump trough worth it. We could not have asked for better guides in Pepo and Paolo. Their passion, knowledge, love of the islands and understanding of our wishes was absolutely stunning. Every day, from early in the morning till late in the evening - our days were filled with activities and adventures, sights to be explored, lessons to be learned and amazing food and drinks to be enjoyed. Experiencing all of this beauty with friends (old and new) made it all the more special. Thank you, Pepo and the tour operator for being awesome!”
A big tick off the bucket list!
4 - Very Good

“We researched options for visiting Machu Picchu and the Galapagos Islands on the same trip and found that the trip by this tour company offered a great combination, allowing plenty of time in both locations and with good itineries. We appreciated the small size of the party (15) and the knowledgable and helpful local guides. The Vieja Cuba Hotel in Quito was quirky and lovely, with friendly staff, but I wouldn't have chosen the hotels in Cusco or Agua Calientes - they were a little too 'budget'. The crew of the Cachalote were fantastic, anticipating every need and providing a faultless service. The tiny cabin space was something of a challenge, with only a couple of small shelves for storage and the bunks are definitely not for the claustrophobic, but that's the price you pay for the privilege of sailing in a small boat.”

Ecuador Hiking Tours

Highlights of Ecuador Hiking Tours

  • The Quilotoa Loop, one of the best hikes in Ecuador, passes through rural villages, such as Sigchos and Isinlivi, and picturesque landscapes, such as the Quilotoa Lake and the Quilotoa crater.
  • Climb Cotopaxi, Ecuador’s most famous volcano, with a height of almost 5,900 meters. This volcano is active, so make sure to go there with an expert.
  • Get lost in the swaps of Cajas National Park, home to several hiking paths for different fitness levels and known for its volcanic rocks from the Cretaceous and Pleistocene period as well as the many lakes, including Laguna Toreadora.
  • Ecuador hiking tours are incomplete without embarking on the Inca Trail, a 40-kilometer hike following an ancient Inca road that used to connect Quito to Cusco. This trail passes through the town of Ingapirca and has marvelous natural sceneries.
  • Trek the Sierra Negra Volcano trail, where you will get the chance to see the second-largest volcano crater in the world, the Sierra Negra Volcano.

  • Plan your Ecuador trekking trip between June and September for ideal hiking conditions.
