Ecuador & Galapagos Travel Agency
Nature & cultural travels at the Equator.
The fascination to travel seems to be particularly great at the equator, as besides the many globetrotters who have found their way crisscrossing the equator, there are of course numerous documented visits from some of the World’s most famous travellers. In relatively recent history, Alexander Humboldt admired and studied the diversity of nature along the equator during his American journey from 1799-1804, and subsequently the world renowned Charles Darwin visited the Galapagos Islands in 1835: Deeply impressed by their unique nature, flora and fauna, he was inspired to write his theory of evolution.
By visiting Ecuador, you too will be inspired by the exclusive scenery and the fascinating cultures here at the equator. Make time to discover the wonders of the animal and plant worlds evolving on the Galapagos archipelago; be immersed in extraordinary and ancient cultures that have survived the centuries whilst travelling through the Amazon basin and the Andean highlands; enjoy trekking through pristine national parks and horse back riding in the shadow of glaciated mountain peaks; or find new friends during a Spanish language course in Quito.
