Andean tours generally focus around adventure and cultural travel. In this ultimate terrain, snow-capped active volcanoes, lush rolling hills with waterfalls and farming communities are scattered throughout.
Mountain biking, trekking, climbing and horseback riding tours can be booked out of any major city, especially Quito, BaĆ±os or Cuenca. They are usually offered for a variety of difficulty levels and trip lengths. For less-energetic travelers, relax in a mountain lodge or natural hot spring resort and enjoy the view, or participate in any number of volunteer projects in an indigenous community.
For an exceptional adventure, hike, trek or climb up Ecuador's tallest mountain peaks with world record holder for climbing and descending Cotopaxi, Aconcagua, and Kilimanjaro, Karl Egloff and his guides at Cumbre Tours.
