Starting in Ecuador to the north and running through Peru, Bolivia and Chile to the south, the Andes Mountain range is one of superlatives; it is the longest mountain chain in the world and home to some of the planet’s highest mountain peaks.

Ecuador’s stretch of the Andes provides a taste of some of the highlights of this remarkable region. Ecuador’s capital Quito is nestled high in the mountains, with beautiful colonial architecture, spectacular scenery and a rich history. Two hours’ drive from Quito on the Andes Mountain slopes as they run down towards the Pacific Coast are areas of pristine tropical forest, known as cloud forest. The cloud forest contains some of the best and easiest birding in the world. The Andes are also home to magnificent haciendas like Zuleta, named by National Geographic as one of the top hotels in the world, colourful indigenous markets, fascinating wildlife and thrilling train journeys.
