Ecuador & Galapagos Family Adventure Holidays

Ecuador packs a wide range of family-friendly attractions into a relatively small space. Enjoy some haggling in the colourful markets of Quito or head to the Andes to see dramatic snow-capped volcanoes. The Galapagos Islands are perfect for wildlife lovers. Stepping onto islands teeming with fearless wildlife or snorkelling in water filled with playful sea lions brings out the big kid in everyone. There can surely be no better place in which to enjoy a holiday in the heart of the natural world. Meet the giant tortoises, spot stars from the boat deck and hop from island to island - just make sure that your camera's memory card is big enough!

Ecuador has it all: Amazon rainforest, colonial towns, Andean peaks and stunning beaches, all packed into a relatively small space. Quito's crowning jewel is its Old Town, a UNESCO World Heritage site full of beautiful architecture and colonial monuments. Not far from Quito lies the Ecaudorian Amazon, with a huge diversity of wildlife and traditional communities. Off the coast, the unique Galapagos Islands are teeming with fearless creatures, many found nowhere else in the world - this is one of the few places left on Earth where the human footprint is minimal.
