Ecuador Hiking Tours

Hiking in Ecuador can be a crash course in nature and even culture — hiking through the villages and smaller cities of Ecuador’s countryside, the warmth of the indigenous, traditional people is as striking as the landscapes. Travelers can challenge themselves by hiking up the numerous volcanoes or take a more figuratively breathtaking route through the Amazon Basin. Knowledgeable guides accompany the tours and keep the hiking fun, safe, and educational.
