Ecuador is a country of surprising diversity. In such a compact area, it packs in the heights of the Andes to the flats of the Pacific coasts, and everything in between.

During this 9-day guided tour, go along the Avenue of the Volcanoes to the Cotopaxi National Park and Cuicocha Lake. Stop in the indigenous markets to understand the Andean life.

Also, discover Quito, Ecuador's capital city, and its beautiful colonial architecture. Travel the Northern Sierra with its numerous lakes and artisan villages. The Central Sierra, also known as the Volcanoes Avenue, and its beautiful treasures, Inca ruins and natural landmarks, and last but not the least, the Guayaquil, named the Pearl of the Pacific.

Experience a complete change of scenery before reaching the coast where you can decide to extend your journey to the Galapagos, relax further on the white sand beaches, or even go to the rainforest.
