Andes & Amazon between Quito and Lima

If you've only got three weeks in which to sample South America, you couldn't do better than visit Ecuador and Peru. These two countries, rich in culture and landscape, are like South America in a nutshell, with terrain that ranges from steaming jungle to the dizzying pinnacles of the High Andes. Beginning in Quito – a city that is a fusion of European and Indian culture – you'll head into the humid lushness of the Amazon for a stay at a jungle camp. Going to sleep to the sounds of the forest is an experience you'll remember forever. From here you'll overland high into the Andes, before descending to the coast and crossing into Peru. There's plenty of time to explore the incredible heritage of the Incas after continuing along the Pacific coast, and the trip ends in Peru's capital city, Lima.
Border information: If you are starting in Quito, enter Ecuador at Quito airport. Today there will be a trip meeting at 18:00 hrs. There are no activities planned for today. We stay the night in a simple hotel.
