Ecuador Tours, Travel & Backpacker Adventure
Ecuador. Where travellers can be bathing in the hot springs of Papallacta, swimming with sea lions or snorkeling in the cool waters of the Galapagos Islands, OR you can embrace adventure! Go on bridge swings, cycle on San Cristobal Island, canyoning, swim under or go go rapelling in the waterfalls in Banos, and climb active volcanoes, such as Tunguruhua and Sierra Negra!
Adventure trek the Andes Mountains, weave your way through South America’s largest marketplace, the Otavalo Market, adventure the Galapagos islands where Charles Darwin developed his theories of evolution, see the iconic ‘Blue Footed Boobies’-birds with bright blue feet! Get the sought after backpacker picture of yourself standing behind the ‘I’m in the middle of the world’ Ecuador line monument sign! If you want more than just a taste of adventure, go downhill mountain biking, racing down Cotopaxi-one of the worlds tallest active volcanoes! (That way you don’t need to climb uphill for nearly 6km!) On a backpacker budget but still want to have an adventure? Ecuador is the cheapest place in South America to adventure the Amazon! If you’re a keen climber and don’t mind spending a few days acclimatizing to high altitudes, the Quilotoa Loop has spectacular views, and how many people can say they have trekked that in a lifetime!
