Ecuador is a country that touches the sky. It has so many volcanoes that for trekking and adventure lovers, it is an exciting country. In addition, one of the tours in Ecuador that our travelers enjoy the most is around the famous and amazing Galapagos Islands. Do you know how many activities can be done in this archipelago?
This country is a paradise for any type of traveler. If you like trekking, don't miss the Riobamba tours. Any route is fine, but climbing to the top of a volcano is an amazing experience for any adventurer. We recommend the Chimborazo climb. 🥰
If you want to enjoy activities in Cuenca, you can take the opportunity to visit some of the most terrific lakes in Ecuador and El Cajas National Park.
Other experiences in Ecuador that most attract attention are Cuyabeno adventures, a wildlife production reserve that will immerse you in the Ecuadorian Amazon.
Of course, reserve a few days of your trip to Ecuador to experience Galapagos tours. This archipelago is amazing. Here you will find animals that do not live in other places in the world, crystal clear waters where you can snorkel or kayak, and a place on the planet where you can get lost and find yourself 👌.
