We start our journey in mainland Ecuador in colonial Quito before we set off down the Avenue of the Volcanoes travelling through glorious mountain scenery, stopping at Inca ruins and boarding one of the world's most exciting rail rides.
Having explored historical Cuenca, dotted with leafy plazas and baroque churches, we fly to the Galápagos Islands to spend a few gently active days discovering a selection of the contrasting islands from your base on Santa Cruz, with walks, kayaking, snorkelling and short trips by motor launch. The famous trusting wildlife is everywhere to be seen, both from afar and way up close.
