Luxury Holidays to Ecuador & Galapagos Islands - The Ultimate Travel Company

Luxury Holidays - Ecuador & Galapagos Islands

There’s a strange inner satisfaction in standing exactly on the Equator, checking the direction water goes down a plughole. Even more intriguing is the vivacious wildlife of the Amazon, and the unique Galapagos Islands.

So, if water spins anti-clockwise as it exits a basin in the Northern Hemisphere, and clockwise in the South, does it go straight down on the actual Equator? Visit the family-run Inti-Nan Solar Museum in Ecuador and the mystery will be solved. Intriguingly you’ll also be able to balance an egg on a pin.

But gravitational tricks aren’t the only reasons to visit this small, peaceful country. Ask one of our Ecuador experts, Nabila Cash, for a tailor-made itinerary and you’ll find the dead centre of the Earth is bursting with life. As part of your tailored holiday, Nabila will suggest a safari into the Amazon itself. Expect to be greeted by raucous macaws, monkeys and camens and a huge array of dazzling birds, pointed out by knowledgeable guides.

And then there are the Galapagos Islands.

Nature took a different route from mainstream evolution here, to inspire Darwin and create a unique world of giant tortoises, marine iguanas, seals and penguins in huge numbers.

Ask Nabila about cruising the Galapagos, or experiencing the old colonial city of Cuenca, or eating lunch in Rumi Loma, whilst overlooking Quito.
