Departs: 22 May 2018

The largest mega-diversity on the planet makes its home in Ecuador - the center of the world. With a privileged climate and the most breathtaking landscapes, the essence of Latin America merge to create a unique and unforgettable destination. The Andes in Ecuador has an area of approximately 600km in length, elevations ranging from the 1500m in the subtropical valleys, to elevations that exceed the 5000m at the summits of the highest volcano.

From Guayaquil on the coast to Cuenca in the highlands, Cuenca fuses culture, nature and tradition.

For an unforgettable active holiday in the Andes, bike along Ecuador's Avenue of the Volcanoes, ride the Devils Nose Railway, bike around Banos and Mt Cotopaxi. Then on to its capital Quito. We bike through the land of the Otavalenos. The indigenous Otavaleños are famous for weaving textiles, usually made of wool which are sold at the famous Saturday market. Here we stay in beautiful country haciendas.

The colourful diversity of Ecuador is simply "stunning".

Colombia, "South America's best kept secret", has undergone many changes in the last 10 years and is now the continent's 3rd largest economy. A tropical country of incredible diversity and charm.
