Set high in the Andes at the foot of a volcano surrounded by hills and snow-capped mountains, Quito is the U-L-T-I-M-A-T-E place to start your South American adventure. Take in the views from the air before you touchdown at Mariscal Sucre airport. CBF finding a taxi? We’ve got you covered – spot your airport transfer in the crowd, sit back and enjoy the ride to our fresh AF accommodation. Tonight, mingle with like-minded travelers in the hostel basement lounge or hit the pavement in search of some mouthwatering street food. Vamonos!

You got a taste of this vibrant city yesterday, now it’s time to get under the skin with a guided city tour. Immerse yourself in the colonial history of Ecuador with a walk through the old center, then check out the likes of Independence Square, Bishops Palace, the Cathedral and the ornate La Compañia. Choco-holics get excited, we’ll get a taste-bud tingling tasting experience before heading up a viewpoint to get alllllll the panos of this place. Hope you limbered up, it’s time to do the splits across the northern and southern hemispheres at the Middle of the World Monument. Disclaimer: only attempt if you’re a gymnast, know your limits. Tonight, get the gang together and go hunting for the best seco de pollo in town.

Start your day right with a spot of morning yoga or coffee on the rooftop deck before breakfast. Today we’re headed into the Yunguilla Cloud Forest for an education in sustainable living and conservation. You’ll be welcomed by the community and introduced to the various projects they have developed – including the tree nursery, handicraft workshop and jam factory. Tuck into the local produce with lunch at the Tahuallullo lodge before exploring the community. Tonight, we’ll spend the evening eating and learning from a local family, staying overnight in their home. Name a more wholesome experience.

Rise with the sun and opt in to lend a hand with milking the cows. We’re all about teaching the life skills. After breakfast, strap on your Nikes and get ready to tackle El Chocal – a viewpoint with stunning photo-ops over the Ecuadorian Cloud Forest. See if you can spot a toucan while you’re here (that’s the bird, not the icy pole FYI). After lunch grab a souvenir jar of jam from the community store, load up the coach and get ready to roll on to Papallacta. Famous for its hot springs and natural surroundings, you’ve got the WHOLE afternoon here to soak in the thermal waters, take a walk through the breathtaking Andean landscape or go all-out boujee with a spa treatment.

Gaze out the window and watch the landscape change as we descend from the high altitudes of the Andes into the lush AF Amazon rainforest. We’ll down lunch at our jungle lodge accommodation situated on the banks of the Napo river before heading into the jungle with a local guide. Learn all about the different medicinal plants and keep your eyes peeled for tropical birds and wildlife – this is as close to becoming Tarzan as you’re ever going to get. Back at the lodge, we’ll tuck into dinner with the crew. Top tip: try the maito fish. When you eventually hit the sack, fall asleep to the sounds of water rapids, birds chirping and the distant cries of monkeys. It’s better than you could have imagined.

Today, you’ve got OPTIONS! Get the adrenaline pumping on an optional full day rafting experience on the Jatun Yaku River OR embark on an included cultural experience that’s one for the memory bank. If you’re all about what’s included, we’ll take a canoe ride to the Tiya Yaku community where we’ll learn about their way of life, customs and values. Check out how the community extracts gold from the river to sell, be taken to the ceremony centre for custom demonstrations and give the blowpipe a go, the traditional hunting tool used by the indigenous people. After lunch back at the lodge, we’ll head across the river to Amazoonico rescue centre. Tonight, regroup with the fam to share the day’s highlights over dinner.

Before we leave the lodge behind, it’s your chance to create a souvenir with the help of an expert artisan. They’ll teach you how to make necklaces or bracelets with organic products that you can show off back at home (cos’ you’re #cultured now). Get your bearings once we reach Baños with an included city tour. Then the rest of the afternoon is yours to soak up all the lush forest vibes with a hike, soak the travel-aches away in the hot springs or take in the views of Tungurahua volcano with a cocktail (or two) at the rooftop bar. Also our accommodation is home to the best pizza garden in town, just sayin’.

Heads up: today is yours to do whatever the f*ck you want. Into adrenalin-pumping activities? This is the place for it. Want to get back to nature? Take your pick of hikes or mountain biking routes. Keen to capture THE pic for your Insta? Take a swing off the edge of the world at Casa del Árbol. Or just chill out back at the hostel. It’s your day, your way.

Thought you were all viewed-out? Think again! Our drive from Baños toward Quito delivers some of the most spectacular views of the Andes. Glue that snoz to the window and enjoy. Before we reach Quito we’ve got a pit stop at Cotopaxi National Park – home to the second highest mountain in Ecuador and an active volcano. Take a hike around the Laguna Limpuipungo, learn about the páramo vegetation and admire the snow-capped peak of Cotopaxi. We’ll roll into Quito tonight just in time to check out the farra (nightlife) and cheers to an incredible nine days on mainland Ecuador. Next: Galápagos.

You’ve seen David Attenborough’s feature series, heard alllll about the funky and freaky animals and now it’s time to experience the Enchanted Islands for yourself. Trust us, moments like these don’t come around too often. We’ll board our included flight to Baltra Island before ferrying over the Itabaca Canal to Santa Cruz. The second largest island of the Archipelago, Santa Cruz is a mixing bowl of plant zones and the perfect place to kick-start your Galápagos adventure. Later, we’ll head to the Charles Darwin Station to check out the natural history collections and get educated in all things conservation.

What better way to explore this place than on a full day boat excursion? On the way, you’ll visit the uniquely beautiful Santa Fe island before tucking into lunch on board. Get pumped for the best game of I-Spy ever! Think: frigate birds, sea lions, green sea turtles and spotted eagles. Then when you thought it couldn’t get any better, we’ll strap on a snorkel and explore the world below the surface where giant marine iguanas rule. Return to the hotel with a full head, heart and SD card – incredible doesn’t even cut it.

From the glittering coast to the lush highlands, we’ll get exploring the unique landscape of inland Santa Cruz today. Get a chance to check out the mind boggling Twin Craters – formed when the ceiling of a huge magma chamber collapsed from erosion. Then, we’ll visit a lava tunnel and learn all about the fascinating volcanic geography of these unique islands. And what would a trip to Galápagos be without spotting a giant tortoise? Get your chance before we settle in for lunch. Round up the day’s adventuring with a visit to the Santa Cruz brewery and get tasting some of the handmade brews mixed with seasonal ingredients. Salud!

Time to take the lead, today you’re free to do whatever you want. Our tip: head to Tortuga Bay for a beach that looks like it’s been ripped from the cover of National Geographic. Want more emerald green, crystal clear water? Take a water taxi to Las Grietas – a volcanic formation perfect for a swim or snorkel. If you’re all about those organised activities, we’ve got you covered too. Jump aboard an incredible kayak tour through the Itabaca Channel. Think: blue footed boobies (not those type of boobies), sea lions, pelicans and sharks. It’s your last full day here so you’d better make the most of it.

Try not to cry into your cereal, we’re out of here after breakfast. Spend the travel time to swap numbers with your trip mates and plan the next awesome adventure (obviously). Feeling like a different person? We get it, this trip is pretty lifechanging.
