Ecuador is a small country with its capital, Quito, situated on the equator and dominated by the mighty Andes which are known for the active volcanoes. These eruptions have given the lush valleys rich soil and minerals so creating a diverse agricultural landscape. During the time in Ecuador the visits will include sheep, dairy, cheese, fruit, flowers, potatoes and vegetables.
By contrast in neighbouring Peru, the visits commence on land that was desert 20 years ago but with irrigation from the melting snows from the Andes it now produces tropical and exotic fruit and vegetables - asparagus has become the main export.
In both countries, the old family haciendas will give you a taste of the wonderful, varied countryside and the local people. In addition to the agricultural experiences, visits are made to the ancient Peruvian Inca sites of the Sacred Valley, Cusco and Machu Picchu.
