    Throughout the day, a knowledgeable local guide provides insider access and expert tips. At night, you can explore and dine on your own.

    Signature

    We use premium hotels that are unique expressions of the region. Often they’ve had a previous life as a monastery or a castle, but in every case they offer an exceptionally comfortable stay.

    Bistro

    These are stylish 4-star properties that offer a casual and comfortable stay. Often without a 24-hour concierge or room service, they tend to be smaller family-run hotels that are perfect for the region.

A pantheon of the Animal Kingdom

Starting in Quito, Ecuador’s capital city, see the many charms of this UNESCO World Heritage Site before journeying to the Galápagos Islands—a modern-day Eden with an unmatched abundance of exotic, endemic wildlife. Spot sea lions sharing the beach with marine iguanas, explore archaic volcanic tunnels and—like Darwin before you—cross paths with giant tortoises. This inimitable adventure is sure to provide you with memories you’ll treasure endlessly.

Please note that space in the Galápagos Islands is very limited and fills up quickly. To secure space, it’s best to book at least one year in advance.

Activity Level What’s Included Gear Extend Your Trip

Recreational

This walking trip features plenty of uneven footing and dirt trails—but its focus is not on covering distance. Transportation to and from the day’s event is provided in most instances. The change in elevation (Quito is 2,800 metres above sea level) may interfere with the breathing of some travellers.

The Traveller

“I enjoy going for a good walk or ride and can even handle an incline or two.”

The Terrain

Relatively flat but will include inclines and the occasional climb or two.
