You cannot beat Ecuador and the Galapagos for an adventure of a lifetime with the kid. This is a must for nature lovers as you will get to explore some stunning sites and see some amazing creatures that you wont find anywhere else. Your time will initially be spent in Ecuador's capital Quito, where you see some truly historical sites but we do recommend you add on a couple of extra days before or after the adventure to explore the capital in all its glory. This will be followed by your trip in the Pacific, sailing through the amazing islands to see some of the world's rarest animals. You will visit the Charles Darwin Research Station, get close to the giant tortoises and see the worlds second largest sea lion colony.

This really is a special adventure holiday for families, combining education with inspiration; children as young as 5 can even explore, just as Charles Darwin once did.
