Holidays in Ecuador

A luxury tailor-made holiday in Ecuador can include the Andes, rainforest, cloud forest and the Galapagos Islands. Ecuador is special!

Tailor-made Ecuador holidays

The small South American country of Ecuador is packed with highlights for any traveller but especially nature-lovers. We tailor-make luxury Ecuador holidays to suit you, whether you stay on the mainland with its mountains and rainforest, or also visit the amazing Galapagos Islands.

Walking from Hacienda Zuleta to the condor rescue centre in the company of their dogs, they shot off barking and a spectacled bear cub appeared above the bushes, closely followed by its mother. They sat and watched us while we took their pictures before we carried on down the valley, where three condors were soaring overhead.

Exciting things to do in Ecuador

It might be one of the smallest countries in South America but Ecuador is definitely not lacking in fabulous things to do and see. Here are just some of the diverse options you can consider on your tailor-made holiday.

When to go to Ecuador

Ecuadorians talk about the weather almost as much as the British! Why? Because it’s very changeable. So, while you should always expect unexpected weather, the driest months of the year are June to September in the Andean regions. In the rainforest, expect rain any time (unsurprisingly!), though the wettest months tend to be around April/May. The Galapagos is a year-round destination. Read on for more detail about when to visit Ecuador.
