This itinerary provides a fabulous trip experiencing life in the local communities of northern Ecuador and the Galapagos. It combines some easy walking visiting towns and villages in the Otavalo area of Ecuador with a seven night Galapagos cruise aboard a small and comfortable first class yacht.

Ecuador sits on the equator between Peru and Colombia and it is one of the smallest of the Andean countries. Despite its small size the country offers an ideal destination for a gentle walking trip. Upon arrival you will transfer to Otavalo, an area famous for its craft market and workshops. Here you will walk through pretty pastoral countryside as well as visiting Cuicocha for a walk around this scenic crater-lake and stay in beautiful old haciendas. You will then drive to Quito’s colonial Old Town and explore the streets and churches of this fascinating city.

Then it is off to the Galapagos for the next part of your exciting journey. You will join a first class motor yacht for a seven night cruise with plenty of time to see some of the many natural wonders of these islands. You will sail on one of two identical cruise yachts, the MY Eric or the MY Letty. These yachts feature three decks of spacious staterooms and each take a maximum of 20 passengers. Accommodation is in ten double, air-conditioned, outside-facing cabins with a window or porthole and private bathroom. On board there is a dining room, a well-stocked bar and a conference area and you can also relax in a lounge chair on the sun deck.

The cruise will explore the Galapagos archipelago and each day you will have guided excursions and daily briefings with expert English-speaking naturalists. There will be easy-paced walks on the islands as well as opportunities to snorkel or kayak so that you can enjoy up close encounters with the amazing wildlife of the Galapagos. In fact, every day will bring new and exciting experiences with memories to treasure long after you return home.

Gentle Walking Ecuador & Galapagos Cruise Itinerary

  1. Day 1 - Fly London to Quito

    Fly from London to Quito on an overnight flight.

    Overnight iconOvernight: Overnight Flight To Quito
  2. Day 2 - Arrive in Quito. Transfer to Otavalo, 2,543m/8,345ft. Visit Mitad del Mundo on the way.

    Upon arrival in Quito you will be met and transferred by private bus to Otavalo, which is around 2 hours drive away. Along the way you will stop to visit la Mitad del Mundo (centre of the earth) so you can straddle the equator. This is a touristy place but an experience to be had to cross the equator on foot! Depending on the flight arrival time you may also stop for lunch along the way. Arriving at Casa Mojanda you will receive a warm welcome and have time to settle in to the lovely accommodation at this organic farm hotel. There are walks you can do from the hotel including a visit to the nearby waterfall, around 30-45 minutes walk each way, where you can enjoy splendid views of the surrounding countryside. You can also just stroll around the grounds and visit the resident llamas, take a dip in the hot tub or search out a book in the snug library. Dinner will be taken in the cosy dining room where you will sample some home grown delicacies.

    Overnight iconOvernight: Casa Mojanda, Otavalo
  3. Day 3 - Walk to Otavalo. Visit market. Peguche Waterfalls walk. Visit craft workshops.

    The Saturday and Wednesday markets at Otavalo are one of the most famous in South America. Here you find many stalls in the Plaza de Ponchos selling a wide range of handicrafts including weavings, tapestry, rugs, bags, paintings and other artwork all made by the local indigenous community. There are handicrafts here to excite even the most hardened souvenir shopper.

    If you wish to get up early today you can join an early morning bird walk, enjoying the local area and seeing how many birds you can see and hear. Alternatively, you can have a more leisurely start and get up in time for breakfast.

    After breakfast you walk from your hotel down the valley to Otavalo. The path starts from the grounds of Casa Mojanda and soon drops into the small river valley, descending through this peaceful rural area following the river until you get to the small streets leading to Otavalo town centre. Here you will visit the famous Otavalo market. The people of Otavalo have been famed for their artistic flair and as fine weavers since pre-colonial times. They are also great entrepreneurs and nowadays people from the town travel all over the world selling their goods. After as much time as you need (within reason!) for shopping and enjoying the sights and sounds of the market you will meet up and walk to the sacred waterfall of La Cascada de Peguche. It is an easy walk up on good paths to the base of the falls, followed by steps up above them for some great views. A picnic lunch will be taken along the way whilst you enjoy the nature of this area. Once you have reached the top of the waterfalls you will be met by your vehicle and taken to visit some of the traditional craft workshops famous in this area. Your guide can let you know what is available and help you decide which to visit based on what interests you most.

    Overnight iconOvernight: Casa Mojanda, Otavalo
  4. Day 4 - Walk round Cuicocha Lake, 3,246m/10,650ft - 5-6 hours.

    After a good breakfast you drive to Laguna Cuicocha (Guinea Pig Lake) a spectacular crater lake situated in the collapsed crater of a volcano, at the foot of Volcán Cotacachi, at an altitude of 3,350m/11,000ft. Here you can make a pleasant walk right around the lake. You set off in a clockwise direction firstly on tarmac and then along a well-maintained trail which undulates along the crater rim with good views over the lake and its two islands. From here, weather permitting, it is possible to see eight volcanoes - Cotacachi, Cuicocha, Imbabura, Cayembe, Antisana, Cotopaxi and Pichincha. You walk through lush vegetation and will see many native Andean plants including bromeliads, orchids and puyas (a handsome plant with a tall flower-spike). You will also see, among many other birds, humming birds, large thrushes (merlots) and down on the lake, coots and several species of duck. If you are lucky you may see an American kestrel and perhaps even a condor. You reach a high viewpoint from where there are excellent views over the lake. The trail then descends to some modern buildings, including an interpretation centre where Indian women often gather to sell souvenirs. It may be possible to take an optional boat ride out onto the lake from here if you wish.

    You then return to the car park for the drive to your historic, atmospheric hacienda for the next two nights. This hacienda has an interesting story, the son of a liberal reformer and a wealthy, land-owning mother managed to create a community during his lifetime, a feat that no landowner in Ecuador had ever done before and perhaps has never done since. Your guide will teach you about the amazing and inspiring Plaza family and the continued work with the local community of Zuleta to help develop one of the best ecotourism destinations in the northern Andes of Ecuador.

    Overnight iconOvernight: Hacienda Zuleta, Otavalo or Similar
  5. Day 5 - Walk to Condor Husai Project. Take a cookery class in the local Zuleta community.

    After breakfast you will hike for around two hours to visit the hacienda's condor rehabilitation project stopping along the way to view some pre-Inca mounds. These are the largest and best preserved archaeological sites of the ancient Caranqui culture. There are 132 small earth mounds dating as far back as 700 A.D. and five large square truncated pyramids from 1200 A.D.
    The Condor Husai is the only place in Ecuador licensed by the government to breed and release into the wild these amazing birds. You will be able to observe the eight condors they have in captivity and with some luck you might see wild Andean condors of Ecuador flying above you or even landing on the aviary.

    The Zuleta community area is famed for its traditional embroidery, dairy products, alpaca farming and highland crops such as wheat, maize, potatoes and quinoa. "Zuletenos" and "Zuletenas", as the local people are known, keep their culture and traditions very much alive so keep an eye out for the way they dress here and how different it is from the traditional Otavalo clothing. For lunch you will visit a local house in the Zuleta community where you will receive a warm welcome and the chance to help cook a traditional meal. This provides an insight into local life as well as contributing directly to the local community. Having cooked the meal you will then proceed to eat it for lunch!

    Later you will return to the hacienda and, time and energy permitting, be able to explore more of the hacienda's grounds or undertake some of the activities on offer.

    Overnight iconOvernight: Hacienda Zuleta, Otavalo or Similar
  6. Day 6 - Drive to Quito. Tour of the Old Town.

    Quito is a busy, vibrant city at an altitude of 2,850m/9,350ft and is the second highest capital in the world. The city is located just 20 miles south of the equator, in a valley high in the Andes and is over-shadowed by the dramatic Pichincha Volcano. Nowadays, Quito has two main sections, the old colonial town which is a UNESCO World Heritage site and the new town where most hotels and tourist facilities are located.

    This morning you will drive to Quito and in the afternoon, you will have a guided tour of the Old Town with its fabulous array of colonial churches, monasteries and convents. Firstly, for orientation, you will visit El Panecillo a hill on the southern edge of the Old Town topped by a huge statue of the Winged Virgin. From here there are great views of the old city and the surrounding mountains. You will then take in some of the major monuments from Quito's colonial legacy, including the vast cobbled square of San Francisco with its adjoining church and monastery and the richly decorated, Baroque confection of the church of La Compañia. The streets of the Old Town throng with local people and there is a feeling of being in the real, vibrant, South America here.

    Your tour will end with a chocolate experience. Ecuador's unique equatorial climate provides the perfect environment for growing the world's finest cacao - Cacao Arriba. Cacao has been revered in Latin America for over 5,000 years. In fact the Spanish explorers loved it so much they called it the 'Food of the Gods'. You will visit Republica del Cacao who´s journey started over ten years ago when they set themselves an ambitious mission, to locally produce the most authentic chocolate, protecting and developing sustainable, fine cacao production. Your chocolate experience starts with a guided journey by story through the history of Ecuadorian cacao and of course the opportunity to taste the chocolate and buy some for later consumption.

    You are free to take your own dinner whilst in Quito in order for you to be able to enjoy the many cafes and restaurants near the hotel, or indeed dine in the hotel's lovely dining room. Your guide and the hotel can advise you on where to go if you would like suggestions. Taxis are very reasonably priced within the city if you decide to explore some of the great restaurants located in other areas.

    Overnight iconOvernight: Hotel Patio Andaluz, Quito or Similar
  7. Day 7 - Fly to Galapagos and transfer to your cruise.

    Early this morning you transfer to the airport for your flight to the Galapagos. You will fly to Puerto Baquerizo Moreno, the capital of the Galapagos Islands also known as Chatham Island. On arrival you will be met at the airport and will travel by bus to the jetty and then by Zodiac to your yacht anchored in the bay. You will join either the Letty or the Eric, which take a maximum of 20 passengers each. There will be a welcome introduction and safety drill, you will be shown your cabin and the boat's facilities and then lunch will be served on board. Later, back on dry land, you travel by bus to Cerro Tijeretas (Frigatebird Hill) situated on the edge of town. This is one of two sites where you can spot nesting colonies of both species of Frigate birds (Great and Magnificent). The trail leads to Punta Carola where there are beautiful views. You will find Lava lizards, the Medium ground finch and Chatham mockingbird. You will then return to your yacht for a briefing, followed by a welcome cocktail party given by the yacht captain. Dinner will be served and your journey at sea begins.

    Overnight iconOvernight: Premium Class Yacht
  8. Day 8 - Cruise day two.

    Today you land at Cerro Brujo, a breathtaking white coral sand beach, considered one of the most spectacular in Galapagos and perfect for a peaceful walk with expansive views. You have an opportunity to snorkel or kayak from the beach or swim with sea lions. A Zodiac ride takes you through a cave called "The Cathedral". During lunch you cruise towards the north-eastern tip of San Cristobal to Punta Pitt, a tuff formation that serves as a nesting site for many sea birds including all three types of boobies: Blue footed, Nazca and Red-footed, both Frigate species, Swallow-tailed gulls, Storm petrels, Shearwaters, Brown pelicans and a colony of sea lions. Punta Pitt is considered to be a first class site for sea birds on par with Genovesa (Tower) Island. You can snorkel at Pitt Rock with sea lions and colourful fish such as King Angel and Surgeon fish. Back on board, you cruise around Leon Dormido (Kicker Rock), a vertical tuff cone formation that rises abruptly almost 500 feet out of the ocean. From the sun deck you can spot Blue-footed boobies, Nazca Boobies and Magnificent Frigate birds.

    Overnight iconOvernight: Premium Class Yacht
  9. Day 9 - Cruise day three.

    When you disembark at Punta Suarez, Espanola (Hood), today, you witness the highest rate of endemic species in Galapagos. Sea lions noisily greet you as you land on their beach. Curious Hood mockingbirds peck at your shoelaces. From April to December, the Waved albatross, found only on Espanola, perform their wild mating ritual. Colonies of blue-footed boobies engage in "sky-pointing" to show off for potential mates. Nazca boobies busily care for their young. Stunning swallow-tailed gulls are the only nocturnal gulls in the world and fish at night. Red-billed tropicbirds take shelter under the cliffs. Also found are Darwin's Finches, Galapagos Doves and Galapagos Hawks. You might also see a unique species of marine iguana identified with traces of red and green colourings. Colourful sally light-foot crabs crawl along the shoreline near to the famous "blow hole". After lunch you make a wet landing on Gardner Bay, Espanola (Hood) and walk along a seemingly endless stretch of white sandy beach where you'll find large colonies of sea lions. There is no trail to follow so this is a chance to explore or take a long walk. You may find a Galapagos Hawk, Darwin's Finches or Hood Mockingbird. You may also swim with sea lions right from the beach, explore the bay and islets by kayak or just relax on the beach. There's an excellent snorkelling site off Gardner Islet with a colourful diversity of sea life near Tortuga Rock. You may also take your Zodiac to explore the caves. You will return to the yacht for a briefing followed by dinner.

    Overnight iconOvernight: Premium Class Yacht
  10. Day 10 - Cruise day four.

    You will land at Punta Cormorant, Floreana (Charles), one of the few populated islands in the Galapagos. Floreana presents a human history rich with mystery and intrigue. You land on a green-sand beach alive with the sounds of sea lions, Lava herons, Yellow-crowned night heron, Blue-footed boobies and penguins. You follow a trail to a brackish lagoon, home of the Bahama ducks, Common stilts, Galapagos flycatcher, Yellow warblers and the Greater flamingos, the pinkest in the world. You wind your way past a rich variety of plants including Morning glory, Cut leaf daisies, black, red and white mangroves, Palo Verdes and Scalesia. The trail leads to a beach with powder soft sand where sea turtles lay their eggs in the sand dunes and rays swim in the shallow water. After the walk, you will have an opportunity to snorkel at Champion, a shallow sunken crater colonized by a brilliant array of colourful fish and corral. Today lunch will be served on the sundeck if weather conditions permit. After lunch, you visit Post Office Bay, not the most scenic, but one of the most famous sites in Galapagos. Here in the 18th century a post barrel was erected and put into use by English whaling vessels. You are invited to leave a post card and to pick up any mail to deliver in your home area. There is a chance to swim from the beach with sea lions. In the late afternoon, you take a Zodiac ride at Baroness Point where you can spot sea turtles and rays. Return to the yacht for a briefing followed by dinner.

    Overnight iconOvernight: Premium Class Yacht
  11. Day 11 - Cruise day five.

    Today you travel by bus to the highlands of Santa Cruz Island. The scenery gradually changes as you wind your way through all seven vegetation zones found in Galapagos. Here, you visit the tortoise reserve at "Las Primicias" one of the private farms in the highlands where you encounter giant tortoises in their natural habitat. You stop at "the tunnels", the largest lava tubes found in Galapagos and visit Los Gemelos, Spanish for "The Twins", a pair of large pit craters where you find the bright red male Vermilion flycatcher. After lunch, you will visit the Centro de Crianza Fausto Llerena (Charles Darwin Research Station) where you will see the tortoise corrals (formerly home to famous Lonesome George) and the breeding centre with new hatchlings and miniature tortoises not yet ready to be repatriated. Scientists from all over the globe work at the station and conduct biological research from anatomy to zoology. You will also visit Van Straelen Hall where there are exhibits and a presentation. Nearby Puerto Ayora, a bustling small town is the social heart of the islands. Here there are opportunities for souvenir shopping, to post your cards or to visit an internet café or bank. This evening you have the option to return to your yacht for dinner or to remain in town on your own account.

    Overnight iconOvernight: Premium Class Yacht
  12. Day 12 - Cruise day six.

    Bartolome with its strange lunar landscape is your first stop today. This young Island is inhospitable to most plants and animals. After a dry landing you will climb 30 minutes up stairs leading to the summit of a once active volcano. Along the way you may pause to marvel at lava bombs, spatter cones and cinder cones. From the top of the wooden stairs, you can gaze out across panoramic views of the island and "Pinnacle Rock", an eroded tuff cone. You may snorkel from the beach in the crystal clear water with schools of tropical fish and Galapagos penguins or take a Zodiac ride. After lunch, you visit Las Bachas, (Spanish for "barges"). Here there is a long stretch of a soft white sand beach and interior lagoons where you may find Greater flamingo. You might also visit Black Turtle Cove (Caleta Tortuga Negra) where you have a Zodiac ride through a series of coves and inlets surrounded by mangroves where you can view pairs of mating sea turtles (Sep to Feb), white-tipped reef sharks and golden cow-nosed rays. There is also a wonderful chance to snorkel here from the beach. Tonight you will anchor in a calm protected area.

    Overnight iconOvernight: Premium Class Yacht
  13. Day 13 - Cruise day seven.

    This morning you head to South Plaza, a small geological uplift with tall cliffs offering spectacular views. After a dry landing, the trail leads you through Prickly Pear or Opuntia and Sesuvium. Here you can find the Galapagos Land Iguana feeding on the cactus leaves. Toward the end of the hill, you encounter a colony of bachelor sea lions. The dominant bulls are in various stages of recovery from battles lost over prime beach territory. You also find Swallow-tailed gulls, Shearwaters and Red-billed tropicbirds which build their nests along the cliffs. After lunch, you have a dry landing at North Seymour, a small geological uplift. You follow a trail that leads you to Swallow-tailed gulls, Blue-footed boobies and the endemic Land iguanas and visit the largest colony of Magnificent frigate birds found in Galapagos. As you stroll along the beach, you will see Marine Iguanas and sea lions which body surf the northern swells. You return to the yacht for the Captain's farewell cocktail party and dinner as well as a special slide show presentation by your guides.

    Overnight iconOvernight: Premium Class Yacht
  14. Day 14 - End cruise and fly to Guayaquil for your international flight to London.

    Today you will visit the Interpretation Centre on San Cristobal Island for an interesting overview of the natural and human history of the islands. Later there will also be some time to wander round town, perhaps visit a local bar or buy some last minute souvenirs before heading to the airport for your flight back to the mainland. On arrival in Guayaquil you will depart for your international flight home.
