Average time to visit

Ecuador & the Galapagos can be visited year round. The higher the altitude in the Andes, the cooler it becomes, especially at night. June to September is the best time to enjoy the Andes as this is the drier season. From January to June it is typically hot in the Galapagos and sees sunny days and blue skies interspersed with showers, while the rest of the year is generally cloudier and cooler. From July to September the seas can be heavier and boats tend to go into dry dock for their annual refurbishment around this time. The average temperature ranges from a pleasant 20°C to 28°C, however being on the equator the sun is very strong. Due to limited permits in the Galapagos we advise to book well in advance.

Itinerary

Fly to Quito
Day 1-3

Quito

Begin your adventure in Quito, Ecuador’s charming capital and a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Take ‘El Teleferico’ cable car and feel like you are on top of the world or pay a visit to the Middle of the World museum and get hands on with some equatorial experiments. A day trip to nearby Cotopaxi Volcano has been included, for an exhilarating mountain biking experience. Stay for two nights at a beautiful hotel in Quito’s historic center.

Accommodation: Casa Gangotena ( 2 nights )
Day 3-6

Ecuadorian Amazon

Next stop on the journey is the mighty Amazon Rainforest. Take a short, 40-minute flight to Coca, before boarding the comfortable boat for your journey to La Selva Jungle Lodge. The journey lasts for approximately 2 hours – snacks and water are provided – so you can sit back and let the sounds of the rainforest wash over you as you keep your eyes peeled for primates and toucans. After disembarking and stretching your legs, there is a short paddle boat journey to reach the lodge (motorized transport is not permitted within the reserve). Spend three nights here, enjoying activities from the lodge; visit colorful parrot clay licks, take a canoe night safari to spot caiman and bats, get involved with local Amazon communities and venture along forest trails, all the while looking out for the enchanting wildlife which resides within the forest canopy.

Accommodation: La Selva Jungle Lodge ( 3 nights )
Day 6-10

Galapagos

Transfer across to the terminal and fly to the magical Galapagos Islands (approx. 2 hours) to begin an incredible wildlife adventure on this unique and fascinating volcanic archipelago. The naturalist guides and invigorating activity programs will inspire, bringing this pristine wilderness to life. Excursions on land include volcano hikes, wildlife walks, exploring lava tunnels and different ecosystems, optional mountain biking, taking a boat to explore different neighboring islands. Activities at sea include snorkeling and kayaking where you may come face to face with sea lions, giant tortoises and iguanas in a rainbow of colors.

Accommodation: Galapagos Safari Camp ( 4 nights )
Fly home (via Guayaquil)
