You can fly into Quito first thing in the morning on the first day of the trip, but we recommend you arrive anytime the day before. On the last day of the trip you can fly out any time. If you need to fly out earlier, you can fly out of Quito anytime after 7pm on day 6. If you want to arrive earlier or leave later, we’re happy to help you out with extra hotel accommodation bookings.

The 7 Day Ecuador Tour is an active adventure-oriented trip that takes you to some wild and remote areas of Ecuador. We’ve chosen accommodations for their comfort, cleanliness and charm – not the number of channels available on the television. Having said that, even the remote jungle lodges have private rooms with mosquito nets, a hammock outside and great views!
If you arrive on the first day of the trip, one of our representatives will meet you at the airport at 10 am. If you’re already in Quito, you’ll meet your trip leader and the rest of your group in the lobby of our joining hotel at 11am.
You can fly out at any time on the last day of the trip.
You must have a reasonable level of fitness to enjoy yourself. You don’t have to be young or extremely fit (although if you are, you won’t be bored) but you should be in the habit of doing at least some regular exercise. Age and experience are not important. We would rather have an older person with a good attitude than a 22-year-old couch potato!
You don’t need to have any outdoor experience to do one of our trips. We offer trips that enable you to make the most of South America’s awesome outdoor environment, culture and history. Our trip leaders are highly trained and experienced outdoor guides, and they’ll look after you very well! You don’t have to carry a pack, be experienced in caving or canyoning, or be used to hiking at altitude. All you need is to be energetic and in reasonable shape and you’ll have a wonderful time. On the other hand, if you like a challenge we will certainly give you one! There are some awesome long hikes in the highlands area and in the Amazon jungle. We can offer activities to suit both people who only do a little exercise and those who have a very high level of fitness. We manage the level of commitment to suit your experience, and we have an impeccable safety record.
Ecuador is in a developing part of the world, and we can’t tell you that everything runs like clockwork in South America. What we can tell you is that we are experienced adventure travel leaders, and we know how to keep things operating as smoothly as possible, even when conditions are challenging. That’s why we are here! If you bring flexibility, an open mind and a sense of humour you'll find your trip goes even smoother!
