Steppes Travel has been selling holidays to Ecuador since the year 2000, between the team we have visited this fascinating and varied country over 20 times. Lucy Hayward has studied and worked in the Travel industry for over 15 years, although she has visited Ecuador a number of times she never fails to be enchanted by its geographical and biological diversity. Lucy is passionate about Ecuador, its scenery and friendly traditional way of life. For such a small country it has so much to offer, and although Ecuador receives many visitors each year it is still possible to step off the well trodden path to find the hidden gems and discover the real Ecuador.
Ecuador is South America's second smallest country. Straddling the equator and dwarfed by its neighbours Peru and Colombia, Ecuador successfully encapsulates a snapshot of the entire South American continent.
An Ecuador holiday can encompass an unforgettable Galapagos cruise in the enchanting Galapagos Islands, the majestic snow capped Andes and the steamy verdant Amazon rainforest. From the beautifully preserved colonial capital of Quito, an UNESCO World Heritage Site, you can soon be at the heart of the indigenous Andean Indian communities with their colourful handicraft markets. Or travel west to the Pacific coast, where you will find a tropical setting of sandy beaches and fishing villages. An Ecuador holiday offers the visitor a complete variety of adventure, culture, history, unique wildlife and very warm and welcoming people.
