Andes, Amazon and Galapagos

Andes, Amazon and Galapagos

Our classic South American experience! Time to marvel at the colonial splendour of ‘old’ Quito before setting off on our journey along the ‘Avenue of Volcanoes’ beginning with an easy trek beneath the snow-capped cone of the famous Cotopaxi volcano. We next visit a high Andean village, famous for its traditional ‘Tigua’ paintings and hike around its spectacular volcanic crater lake.

Dropping down off the Andes now into the dense green canopy of the jungle we travel by motor dugout down the turbulent Napo River to an Indian village. We become their guests and spend time absorbing their culture, walking deeper into the forest, riding the river in longboats and living in simple lodges.

Out of the jungle to Otavalo and its famous market before returning to Quito to fly to the Galapagos Islands, 600km across the Pacific. Spending seven days there we island-hop between the different uninhabited islands. With a diet of tropical fruit, fresh fish and sunshine, we can swim with sea-lions, turtles and iguanas, and tiptoe close to tortoises and birds so tame that you will never need a long lens.
