Nature Off the Screen

9 Day Ecuador Itinerary

If your travel goal is to show your family the natural world, then this is the vacation you need. You’ll get outside, explore amazing destinations, and see animals in their natural habitat.

Our advice to visitors of Ecuador is…

We designed this Signature Trip to keep your family in the fresh Andean air. Listen to water lapping, birds singing and leaves rustling in the forest. Smell the fresh, sweet scent of the Earth. Adventure and excitement are all around you, when you put down your devices and really see the world.

What will make your friends jealous…

Your friends won’t believe that you island-hopped around a bucket list destination –– explore San Cristobal, Bartolome, South Plaza, and Wolves. The children’s friends will envy that they saw animals found nowhere else on Earth, passed volcanoes, sailed across the ocean, and walked through clouds.

Why you’ll want to return…

You could spend the next 10 years exploring the Galapagos Archipelago and see something new each time. Then, there’s the Ecuadorian Amazon… No doubt, you’ll want to enjoy colorful festivals and dance in the street to live music. Maybe hit the beach for a family surf lesson? Next time; see you soon!
