Ecuador – A&K’s Top 5 Experiences!

May 15, 2014 Travel Deals No Comments Email Email

Ecuador is one of luxury travel company Abercrombie & Kent’s top selling South American destinations. Here are our Top 5 experiences, which bring this small but rewarding destination to life.

Unforgettable wildlife

The Galapagos is full of incredible wildlife experiences but exploring the lava shoreline of Santiago Island where marine iguanas bask in the sun and sea lion pups play in the rock pools is one of the most memorable.

Art behind the scenes

One of the most surprising experiences in the capital is the opportunity to meet acclaimed local artist Osvaldo Viteri in his Quito studio. His passion for colonial religious art and views on local politics, religion and Ecuadorean society give a remarkable insight to the city and its people.

Room with a view

Quito’s Hotel Plaza Grande has an unrivalled location in the heart of the Old City. From the Juliet balcony of suite 34 the view over Plaza de la Independencia and its wonderful colonial monuments is nothing short of breathtaking outshone only by the welcoming service from the hotel staff.

A&K’s eleven day ‘Sail the Enchanted Isles’ journey includes a seven-night luxury  Galapagos cruise aboard MV Eclipse, a visit to Osvaldo Viteri’s studio and a two-night stay at Hotel Plaza Grande and is priced from $9,355 per person.

Colonial Cuenca

Perfectly explored on foot, the old cobbled streets and ironwork balconies of Cuenca are charm itself. Being welcomed into a local house is a highlight and the panama hats at Homero Ortega factory are exquisite.

A&K’s three day ‘Cuenca Extension’ is priced from $755 per person.

The Cloud Forest

For off the beaten track adventure the Mashpi cloud forest on the western slopes of the Andes is a must. Both beautiful and brimming with wildlife there’s also an award winning lodge to bed down in and a great choice of jungle activities.

A&K’s three day ‘Ecuador’s Cloud Forest’ extension is priced from $1,875 per person.
