Explore the Highlands of Ecuador
The Andes run like the fossilized spine of a dinosaur through Ecuador, as they make their way from the Caribbean down to the wilds of Tierra del Fuego: the longest, grandest mountain range in the world. Ecuador’s share is fascinating, home to snow-capped peaks that shine impossibly bright beneath the Sun’s equatorial rays, fuming volcanoes cloaked in mists and skirted by wild paramo grasslands and green forests, small towns full of crafts, markets and traditions, and no-end of experiences to enjoy no matter what your idea of a perfect day might be.
Plan Your Safari
Located in a beautiful valley in the Northern Highlands of the Andes, Hacienda Zuleta is a working farm and historic home offering Andes eco tours. Explore the hillsides by horseback or on foot, and meet the condors at its reintroduction project.
A Helicopter Ride Over Ecuador's Volcanoes
Just south of Quito is the Avenue of Volcanoes, a picturesque chain of volcanoes stretching some 200 miles. One of the best ways of experiencing these natural wonders is from above, by helicopter.
