3 Days Land Tour Ecuador

Located on the equator in the northwest corner of South America, Ecuador welcomes visitors year-round by land to explore its high Andes cultures, biodiverse rainforest and charming colonial cities with modern comforts. Visit Ecuador by horseback, among farms, plateaus and volcanoes at 8,000 feet; walk, bike and fly amongst the cloud forest on rainforest canopy tours; learn about weaving and leatherwork from locals; and unlock the history behind Ecuador’s gateway cities.

Within a morning or afternoon’s drive from Quito, you can access the famed cloud forest of Ecuador, home to around 15 percent of the world’s plant species, 20 percent of the world’s bird diversity and jaguars, spectacled bears, pumas, sloths and other enchanting creatures. Another short drive reveals highlands, markets and haciendas amongst a patchwork of agricultural plateaus, verdant hillsides, high alpine lakes, the towering Imbabura Volcano, rural villages and colorful markets—including the world-famous Otavalo market.

With nearly every Ecuador adventure requiring passage through one of these two international airport cities, our experts have hand selected the best Quito hotels and premium Guayaquil hotels as well as the cities’ must-see attractions. The Galapagos hub cities of Quito and Guayaquil offer their own unique attractions, one with colonial mountain charm and the other with modern economic coastal capital.
