Ecuador is a land that is blessed with an abundance of natural beauty. The country's diverse landscapes range from the snow-capped peaks of the Andes to the steamy jungles of the Amazon. Here are some of the highlights that make Ecuador one of the most spectacular destinations in the world.

The highlands: The Ecuadorian highlands are dominated by the snow-capped peaks of the Andes Mountains. This dramatic landscape is home to a variety of unique wildlife, including spectacled bears, pumas and condors. Visitors can explore this region on foot, by bike or by horseback.
