INCENTIVE TRAVEL TO ECUADOR AND GALAPAGOS?
Ecuador & Galapagos incentive travel
Ecuador is a relatively small but very versatile country, in which you will end up from one highlight to another during your incentive trip. It is one of the best countries to visit the Amazon, with a very high concentration of wildlife. In addition, Ecuador has impressive crater lakes, volcanoes and Indian markets, the Andes, beautiful beaches and the Galapagos! The avenue of volcanoes leads you from north to south as you travel through Ecuador and forms a natural separation between the cloud forest and the Amazon. The cloud forest has an enormous diversity of bird species, making Ecuador one of the world’s best bird watching spots.
During an Ecuador Incentive trip you can marvel at colonial cities like Quito, the best intact colonial city in South America. Do you want to literally walk on the equator and be surprised by what is happening there? Then pay a visit to “mitad del mundo”. Start your incentive trip with this unique experience and take a guided city walk through the impressive Quito!
You can enrich your Incentive trip with the unique piece of earth that can be found on Galapagos Islands. The legendary Galapagos Islands are an absolute highlight of an Ecuador trip and are accessible via flights from Quito.
The archipelago where Darwin’s theory of evolution originated is known for its pure and unique animal life. You can snorkel with sea lions, turtles and manta rays and make beautiful multi-day cruises. We work with the best wildlife guides who can tell you everything about the flora and fauna.
