UIAA World Youth Championship Climbing
Ibarra, Ecuador, August 22-26, 2007


Inti Travel and Tours and our Ecuadorian Associates would like to welcome you to Ecuador! We are offering all World Youth Championship (2007) climbers a 7% discount (add another 3% if you pay in US dollars) on all of the hotels, tours and cruises we offer anywhere in the country. July and August are typically "high season" months for Ecuador so it's important to make your reservations as soon as possible. Just let us know what you are interested in and we will be happy to put together a "proposed itinerary and quote" for your trip.

Hotels and Haciendas
Ecuador offers superb accommodation with great value for all budgets. We offer only the best quality accommodations that provide friendly service, good food and are located in safe surroundings close to tourist destinations. Be sure to take a look at the various excursions we offer from the hotels.

Galapagos Islands
While you are in Ecuador why not visit the incredible Galapagos Islands with your friends or family and experience nature at its finest. Galapagos tortoises, sea lions, marine iguanas, penguins, blue-footed boobies, sea turtles, whales and dolphins all in one place!

If you are interested in any of the ships and yachts we offer, please refer to Galapagos Cruises and Tours.

The Andes of Ecuador offer an incredible variety of landscape, nature, culture and adventure. National parks, nature reserves, archaeological sites, indigenous pueblos and superbly beautiful scenery abound. Quito, the cultural centre of the Andes and the capital of the country, is a World Heritage Site. Our tours offer you a unique opportunity to experience the very best of the Andes.

A journey to South America is not complete without a visit to the Amazon Rainforest. The Amazon is the largest tropical rain forest on Earth, covering about 2.7 million square miles (seven million square kilometers) or 90% the size of the 48 lower states of the U.S. Although the Upper Amazon of Ecuador, Peru and Bolivia is only 20% of this total, it represents the wildest, most wildlife-packed rain forest in the world. The density and diversity of Amazonian animal and plant species reach global maxima in the extreme western Amazon, near the foot of the Andes, precisely the location of many of the lodges and other experiences we offer.

Inti Travel and Tours and our South American associates are proud to present you with an opportunity to travel to the Amazon to experience this spectacular rainforest with its abundant wildlife and friendly people. Please refer to Discover Amazonia for links to all of the lodges and other adventures we offer in the Upper Amazon of Ecuador!

Climbing (as if you wouldn't have had enough)
There are quite a few good climbing areas close to Quito: Santa Clara, Sigsipampa, Sierra Virgin and Cuyuja are a few outside of Quito on the way to (and in the vicinity of) Papallacta Hot Springs. I would highly recommend this route if you enjoy soaking in hot springs while gazing at a glacier-capped volcano after an invigorating days climbing. Papallacta Hot Springs offers good food and accommodation with private cabanas and secluded hot pools close to the Cayambe-Coca Ecological Reserve. And if you're not a climber, this is still an incredible and very relaxing place!

If you are interested in getting to some of the best climbing areas in Ecuador, please refer to the Monodedo Ecuador website (in Spanish) or contact climbing guide Edgar Aurelias of Monodedo. He's the guy at the right with the "monkey fingers"!
