Highlights of Ecuador

Things to See & Do

  • Quito


    Ecuador’s lofty capital lies in a valley below the imposing slopes of Pichincha Volcano. The Old City, with its captivating colonial architecture and lively markets, has justifiably been named a World Heritage Site by UNESCO, and contrasts beautifully and elegantly with the spectacular backdrop of the snow covered mountains.

  • Guayaquil


    Guayaquil, along with Quito, is a jumping off point for the Galapagos Islands. But it is well worth spending at least a day here. Ecuador's largest city is located on the coastal lowlands and boasts a pleasant harbour area and the historic barrio of Las Peñas.

    Galapagos Islands

    The Galapagos Islands are like another planet which is why Bales tours to Galapagos are like no other. Each island is completely different to the next in terms of landscape, atmosphere and of course the famous wildlife. Each morning wake up moored next to a new island ready to explore. At the beaches of Espanola Island you can swim with baby sea lions. At Fernandina you can hike the volcanic rock amongst the colonies of lava lizards and marine iguanas. At the eerie island of Genovesa you can discover the blue and red footed boobies and within the green interior of Santa Cruz Island you will find the wild giant tortoises. The sunset at Kicker Rock and the amazing view from the top of Bartolome Island are other highlights of this heavenly paradise.

    From Ecuador, the opportunities for spotting wildlife are excellent at the lodges which use local indigenous communities as guides. They have an unrivalled ability to spot kingfishers or to locate the river dolphins. Access to the Amazon is by road or by a short flight from Quito to Coca and then by boat to one of the jungle lodges tucked away in the rainforest. Choose from the Napo wildlife centre, Sacha Lodge or Huaorani Eco lodge.
