Zebra and wildebeest loping across the rolling veld. A pride of Transvaal lions lounging by the river. Hyenas laughing in the distance.

We begin in the volcanic highlands north of Quito, where we take a gorgeous crater rim hike along Laguna Cuicocha. Revel in bursts of color inside the indigenous market of Otavalo. Soak in the day’s adventure in thermal pools at Papallacta Hot Springs. Kayak clear waters teeming with marine life, swim with friendly sea lions and hike along the flanks of active volcanoes.
