Our purpose

For the planning and operation of our tours to South America we first think about the ecosystem of the place, and the ways that tourism can support its conservation. At Ecoandes Travel, we work with the environment to leave a positive impact on each place we visit and on our passengers; that is, we create experiences together with the people of each place and learn about their culture, beliefs and gastronomy.


Our beginnings

EcoAndes Travel Oficinas
  • 1988

    Climbing mountains in the Cordillera of Peru, our founders Hugo and Mireya met to start a dream formed by the love of nature and exploration.
    Under the name of Pamir they started their first adventure trips where they both dedicated themselves to expeditions in the Andes Mountains.

  • 1991

    With more and more hikers joining the expeditions and more solid itineraries of adventure and culture, together they decided to venture out to participate in tourism fairs in Berlin, London, Spain and Holland; making friends all over the world.

  • 1997 - 2000

    As a result of their effort and dedication, the Hotel Fuente de Piedra and the fascinating Yacuma Ecolodge joined the Ecoandes family; properties that would later give way to the arrival of the tour operator Unigalapagos, the catamaran yacht Anahí and the Hotel Ikala Quito.

  • 2022

    Now our goal is to confirm ourselves as one of the best tourism services in Ecuador and Latin America and our objective is always to provide our guests with the best adventure experience.
