Ecuadorian Expedition, Young Adventurers

What’s not to love about Ecuador and the mythical Galapagos Islands? From charming colonial streets, to majestic snow topped volcanos, the towering Andes, vibrant local markets and the incredible wildlife and scenery of the beautiful Galapaogos, where you can sunbathe alongside sea lions and snorkel with turtles.

Fly to Quito and spend 2-3 nights enjoying the second highest capital city in Latin America. Stroll around the atmospheric old town, stop for a delicious ceviche and visit the Equator line- you can stand with one foot in the Northern hemisphere and the other in the South! Next, head out of Quito to the Andean mountains to stay at a traditional rural estancia for 3 nights, where children are warmly welcomed and encouraged to take part in the many activities on offer- looking after the animals, horse-riding and mountain-biking amongst other things. Don’t miss a trip to the renowned market in nearby Otavalo to pick up some exquisite and colourful local handicrafts. Head back to Quito for your flight to the Galapagos, via Guayaquil for an utterly unforgettable and unique week aboard an expedition yacht, touring these magical islands, made famous by Darwin. With special family departures, everything is tailored around you and your children. Your expert naturalist guide will lead you on daily excursions and there are plentiful options for snorkelling, sea kayaking and relaxation on board. Children and adults alike love the fact that they can get up close and personal with sealions, caimans, penguins and birds, fascinating insects, giant tortoises and other inhabitants of these fascinating islands.
