Tropic Journeys in Nature
"Tropic’s unparalleled knowledge and understanding of Ecuador means unrivalled, innovative, hand-crafted solutions for the most sophisticated travel tastes. What we offer is a genuine, intense interaction with destinations and local people based on mutual respect. It involves getting to know a truly authentic style of life in today’s Ecuador."
We're award–winning specialists in responsible, community-based tourism through high-quality operations and exceptional service in Ecuador. Tropic grew out of the need for a tourism operator which could demonstrate that environmental protection and cultural respect can be compatible with running a successful business. While many of Ecuador's most valuable and beautiful regions are falling victim to insensitive 'development' causing a tragic loss of biodiversity, now more than ever it is necessary to create viable economic alternatives which give value to this ecological and cultural richness.
Tropic provides exclusive encounters and unique experiences for travelers with a spirit of discovery and who are keen to explore the variety of landscapes, cultures and adventures Ecuador has to offer: The enchantment of the cloud forests with their profusion of animals and birds; the lushness of the Amazon with its rivers and ancient forest peoples; the high Andes and their spectacular snow-capped mountains, clear lakes and traditional hospitality; and the incredible wonder of the Galapagos Islands, and their incomparable geography, flora and fauna.
