Voyages Jules Verne

Visit Ecuador & the Galapagos Islands

Despite the country's tiny size relative to its neighbours, Ecuador has some of the globe's most varied landscapes and an impressive bio-diversity, which is nowhere more evident than in the spectacular Galapagos Islands.

Visitors attracted by Ecuador’s natural beauty will not be dissatisfied, with flora and fauna abounding, and more bird species and more orchids that anywhere else on the planet. The islands that inspired Charles Darwin’s theory of natural selection and many of his studies, are arguably the country’s greatest draw.

But it’s not only Ecuador’s organic attributes that will impress travellers. Flanked by volcanic peaks, the capital Quito’s old town is a maze of colonial splendour retaining its traditional indigenous character and atmosphere befitting its UNESCO heritage status. Recent sympathetic restoration has reinvigorated building and churches, theatres and museums as well as given the area a new lease of life. Away from the capital it is an adventure into a realm of sleepy mountain villages, colourful and chaotic Indian markets, soaring mountains and dense jungles it is easy to view Ecuador as a microcosm of all that is good about South America.

Weather & Climate

Ecuador has a highly changeable climate, which means that it can be variable at any time.

When to go

Ecuador’s high season is June to early September. There is a shorter tourist season from December to January as well. However, the country is still not overly busy at any time and it’s easy to engineer an escape from the crowds.
