Beginning and ending in Quito, this trip encompasses a comprehensive tour of the spectacular Galapagos islands.
There are no direct flights to Ecuador from the UK, but you can change in Amsterdam or Madrid, or a number of US cities including, Miami, Houston and Atlanta.
Late may till November is the driest period on the coast, whilst the highlands are more consistent for most of the year, with generally warm dry days and cold nights, apart from December-March which is slightly wetter. For the Galapagos islands the driest and warmest period is b/w December & May.
It’s possible to visit Quito and the Galapagos in 7 days, though if you want to see more of the country we recommend a minimum of 10.
UK citizens travelling for leisure do not require a visa to enter Ecuador and may remain in the country for 90 days.
