The tiny Andean country of Ecuador is a stunning country. Its capital Quito, at 9350 feet above sea level, is one of South America’s most picturesque cities, with a temperate climate and spectacular views of snow capped volcanic mountains. Quito is the gateway to one of the world’s most protected and diverse animal sanctuaries the Galapagos Islands.

The Galapagos Islands offer an unparalleled experience in animal viewing. The islands lie 600 miles west of Ecuador, on the equator and in the path of cool nutrient rich currents. This combination allows the unique setting that separates Galapagos from all other Island Groups.
