Ecuador Active Tours

Our Ecuador active tours are not for armchair tourists. They are for people who want to experience the amazing beauty of Ecuador up close and personal. We offer specialized trips for whitewater rafting, hiking, canopy tours, mountain climbing, trekking, mountain biking, or horseback riding. These trips are generally 1 to 8 days in length. But we also feature active tours that combine various activities into a longer tour package. If you prefer, we can design a custom combination package for you that includes all of YOUR favorite activities. Our Ecuador active tours always include private transportation and a qualified guide. Additional services vary by tour, but amazing nature and adventure come standard with all of our Ecuador active tours.
