ABOUT US

UNIQUE ADVENTURE TRAVEL is a young but very experienced adventure tour operator, since its founders and staff have over 15 years exploring, guiding, and planning amazing adventures in UNIQUE places in different regions of Ecuador.

Why come to Ecuador

Ecuador is a beautiful South American country located on the equator, which despite its small territory, is one of the countries with the greatest biodiversity in the world. Due to its geographical and cultural variety, nowadays it is consider one of the best destinations for adventure, nature and cultural tours.

In Ecuador, in only a matter of days you can be over 19.000 ft / 5.700 m at the top of giant snowcapped volcanoes, biking from highlands over 13.000 ft / 4.000 m to the coast, or adventuring river down on a raft or kayak surrounded by astonishing tropical rain forest! Definitely a taste of paradise with infinite options to explore it!

The country with 283,561 km2 / 109,415 sq mi is divided into 4 regions across its little territorial expansion, Andes, Coast, Amazon and Galapagos Islands, four worlds in just one country!

The Andes mountain range which reach up to 6.300 m / 20.600 ft provide ideal conditions for different amazing attractions due its altitudinal ranges like majestic snowy volcanoes, beautiful lakes surrounded by extensive moors, and rainforests filled with abundant vegetation and rivers with magical towns and cities full of history and culture.

The Pacific Coast is defined by 1,000 km of marvelous beaches, sea cliffs, charming bays, protected areas, many cultural representations, delicious food and a very well-developed tourist infrastructure, which allows excellent opportunities to relax, go on adventure and be entertained in a tropical paradise which is definitely worth the visit.

The Amazon allows the perfect opportunity to discover the immense biodiversity of the tropical rainforest; from the lush green vegetation, beautiful rivers, to the vast amount of animal species, this makes it one of the most complex habitats on the planet. Here exist various ethnic groups that live in harmony with nature while preserving their ancestral traditions.

Finally the Galápagos Islands, declared the Natural Patrimony of Humanity and Biosphere Reserve, make up one of the most diverse, and unique oceanic archipelagos in the World.  Its geographically isolated location, biological richness and evolutionary processes reflected in its unique flora and fauna are only a few must-see attractions that visitors can enjoy.
