There’s so much more to Ecuador than just the wildlife. It’s culture, it’s people, its the warm embrace of meeting strangers who become friends.
On this walking itinerary through the highlands of the Andes, you’ll travel by foot as you explore the countryside meeting families who farm here and for generations have protected their way of life as the generations before them did. At night, we’ve chosen small haciendas for you; you’ll be treated as family. What a relaxing way to end a day – in the company of new friends with a comfy bed to rest in before the next day’s adventure.
You’ll end your Ecuadorian trek with a splurge – a night at a hot springs resort to melt away your aches and pains, all worthwhile considering a week’s worth of trekking through gorgeous landscapes. We’ve paced this trip so that acclimatization is easy and each day is a joy.
