Here are photos from some of our past guided Introduction to Ecuador tours.
Ecuador is one of the most geographically, culturally, and biologically diverse countries in the world. Amazing landscapes encompassing rainforests, Andean mountain ranges, coastal ranges, deserts, and tropical grasslands make this South American country a haven for astonishing motorcycling.
This guided motorcycle adventure tour will take you to all of the best that continental Ecuador has to offer on this unforgettable motorcycle adventure.
We will visit all of the major regions of continental Ecuador - the Andes, the Coast, and the Amazon Basin. We will have time to explore the major cities of Quito, Loja, Manta, Esmeraldas, and Cuenca, including many places, declared "World Heritage Sites" by the United Nations. We'll visit the famous "gringo" hangouts such as Canoa, Vilcabamba, Otavalo, and Baños. We will experience the various cuisines of Ecuador such as the Criolla cuisine in Esmeraldas, fresh coffee from plantations in Loja, pure fresh chocolate from a cacao plantation in Guayas, hearty potato soups of the Andean highlands, and steamed fish wrapped in Amazonian jungle leaves.
One of the things that sets a motorcycle trip apart from other types of tourism is the scents, fragrances, and aromas that you can experience while riding a motorcycle. You can't experience these the same way while traveling in a bus or car. Ecuador provides you with a feast for all your senses. You will pass through brilliant fields of multi-colored roses, see wild orchids in the rainforests, smell the eucalyptus and pine forests, ripening bananas, and ride through the salty mist along the shore. You'll smell the fresh, wood-oven baked bread in colonial cities.
The motorcycle tour will also take you off the beaten track to explore some of the wild areas of Ecuador. It is one of the most adventurous motorcycle tours that you can do. It will give you access to untouched wildlife and unforgettable insight into how native Ecuadorians have lived for centuries.
