Hiking vacations in Ecuador
Ecuador's theatrical backdrop of smouldering volcanoes and craggy peaks turns even the gentlest of walks into a dramatic experience. The verdant lower slopes, with their waterfalls and rare orchids, provide easier hikes. Tougher, high-altitude climbs pass glaciers, hardy vegetation and jade-green lakes, into the little-seen world beyond the snow line. An Ecuador walking vacation takes you up into the clouds to meet local communities an discover daily life in the Andes.
