Straddling the Equator, Ecuador is the smallest Andean nation, but it’s one of the most diverse countries in the world. Ecuador offers startling contrasting scenery that ranges from lush tropical rainforests through glaciated volcanoes to the scenic shorelines of the southern coast. With amazing biodiversity, abundant indigenous culture, fine colonial architecture, tropical cities and a diverse mix of people, there is so much packed into this little gem of a country. Must-see sights include the capital Quito, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, Cotopaxi, one of the few equatorial glaciers in the world, and the Nariz del Diablo, or “Devil’s Nose,” a train line in the mountainous Andes that offers sweeping panoramic views.

But above all, it has the Galapagos Islands, “Darwin’s laboratory”, arguably the world’s most important wildlife sanctuary. This remote and isolated volcanic archipelago is a truly unique ecosystem where you can get up close on foot to the remarkably fearless wildlife, including giant tortoises, sea lions and penguins, under carefully controlled conditions to protect this precious environment.
