Starting in Lima and ending in Quito, the trip Ecuador & North Peruvian Wanderer is a guided trekking trip that takes 20 days. You will be traveling through Huanchaco, Huaraz, Lima and 4 other destinations in Ecuador and Peru. Ecuador & North Peruvian Wanderer is a group trip which includes accommodation, transport, meals and others. Please see the package includes section for further details.

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.

“The trekking up Laguna 69 and the Quilota Volcano were excellent, as of course were both the excellent crew and fellow travellers.”

“Overlanding may not be for everyone as it is very much a shared travelling experience. This was our second trip with Dragoman after hopping off the truck in Santiago and travelling independently for a couple of months before re-joining the same truck in Lima. As before, we very much enjoyed the whole journey and also the wonderful crew and fellow travellers, who are all now active personal friends on social media well after the trip.”

Local Payment The local payment is a group fund, paid separately from the trip price on the first day of the tour. It covers everything that the group does together on the ground. This is primarily hotel accommodation and campsite fees, meals whilst camping (but not while eating in restaurants), and included activities and puts money directly back to the local community. The local payment, or kitty system, is unique to overlanding tours and provides maximum flexibility and best value on the road - you can see exactly what is being paid for, you get everything at cost price, it keeps costs competitive by leveraging group expenses and saves on administrative costs. The fund is run by the tour guide, and any excess left over at the end is returned equally to the group. Local prices are estimated in USD when we print the brochure then reviewed monthly as local costs and exchange rates vary throughout the year. It's therefore important once you book your trip to check the website regularly and just before departure for any changes to the amount.
