Ecuador’s ecological diversity is so great, it’s more than can fit within the borders of one country. Ecuador is four worlds: the magnificent Andes, the Amazon rainforest, the pristine coastline and the legendary Galapagos Islands. There is a wealth of ways to explore these four worlds and a variety of activities that immerse adventure travelers in the ecosystems and cultures of Ecuador. In this free educational webinar, a leading representative from the Ecuador Ministry of Tourism will join three Ecuadorian tour operators in presenting a wide array of adventures in Ecuador, including the itinerary for AdventureWeek, a ten-day familiarization trip created especially for members and media from the Adventure Travel Trade Association (ATTA). Alice Gifford, ATTA’s Director of Community Development, will moderate. Participants will get a sneak peek at:

  • AdventureWeek preliminary itinerary, including activities and overnight locations
  • Highlights of Ecuador’s cultural, artistic and ecological diversity
  • Special interest opportunities like the Chocolate Route, the Tren Crucero luxury train
  • Best spots in Ecuador for birding, history, architecture, gastronomy or hiking

Guest Speakers: Cristina Rivadeneira, Ecuador Ministry of Tourism Jorge Pérez, Tierra del Volcan Slav Ivanov, Tren Crucero Viviana Varela, TAME Airlines
