Ecuador & the Galapagos Holidays

Ecuador & the Galapagos Holidays

Despite being the smallest of the Andean nations, Ecuador punches well above its weight and has as much spectacular scenery, natural beauty and cultural interest as its larger neighbours.

When is the best time to travel to Ecuador?

Our climate charts will give you an idea of the weather conditions of Ecuador.

The temperature in Ecuador varies little throughout the year, and is more strongly influenced by altitude than month. If you are going to be trekking at altitude, then you will certainly need to pack some warm layers for the evenings.

The year can be split into three seasons; the driest season is between June and September, with clear sunny days in the highlands. This is the perfect time of year for a trekking holiday in Ecuador. The shoulder season (October and November) can also be a good time to visit Ecuador, though there may be rain in the afternoons in the highlands. December to May are usually the wettest months, but January to May are the best months for taking a Galapagos cruise.

If you can't make the dates of our group departures, then take a private departure on dates to suit you, or we can create a Tailor Made holiday to Ecuador, especially for you and your family or friends.
