Expeditions to Ecuador's Amazon, Cloud Forest & Galápagos

Ecuador is one of the most diverse and colourful corners of the planet, a country bursting with life and a promise of wild, unforgettable adventures.

Amazon rainforests, Andean cloud forests and the incomparable Galápagos Islands; each is worthy of its own expedition, but together, they provide one of the most exciting forays into the natural world. We have developed two unique itineraries to give you the option to explore all three regions on one incredible adventure, or to simply soak up the unusual landscapes and wildlife on a Galápagos cruise.

Each itinerary is action-packed with daily excursions into the peculiar and pristine. The Andean Cloud Forest’s high-altitude trails lead us through one the most bio-diverse regions in the world in search of the elusive howler monkey and an array of bird species. Deep within the Amazon basin you’ll discover exotic plants and wildlife, cruise down the famed Napo River, and even try your hand at fishing for a ferocious piranha – if you dare!

The pinnacle of Ecuador’s natural attractions though, is the Galápagos Islands. On our small-ship Galápagos Island tours each day brings exciting adventures: picture yourself with a giant tortoise, snorkel or kayak with sea lions, and trek across ancient lava flows dotted with intriguing iguanas. Cruise in our glass bottom boat and visit the Charles Darwin Research Center to learn how these islands inspired our understanding of life as we know it.

Combine each region with our knowledgeable expedition leader, an expert local team, and an array of personalised experiences, and you're in for one unforgettable adventure!
