Imagine getting ready to tee off at 2700 meters with the majestically snowcapped peaks of the Andes Mountains in the background

Unique golf holiday including Galápagos Expedition Cruise

A journey of a lifetime to combine your passion for golf with love for nature and culture. You will play at exclusive golf courses, visit the Amazon rainforest and the magical cloud forest, spend the night at traditional haciendas and explore the most beautiful colonial cities in South America: historical Quito and Cuenca (both UNESCO World Heritage sites). The cherry on the cake is a visit to the enchanting Galápagos Islands for a 5-day expedition cruise along the islands, an unprecedentedly beautiful experience in one of the most pristine places on earth.


In Ecuador you can play golf at a very high level, literally! Imagine getting ready to tee off at 2700 meters, an undulating fairway crossed by small rivers and streams in front of you and the majestically snow-capped peaks of the Andes Mountains in the background. In the vicinity of Quito, Guayaquil and Cuenca you will find well-maintained, exclusive golf courses. Some of these were completely private and closed to the public until recently. Aves Travels is proud to offer you the chance to play in this extraordinarily beautiful country.
