CarpeDM Adventures Ecuador

Step into a world of Adventure with CarpeDM, the award-winning tour operator and agency in Ecuador. Established in 2007, we've been recognized as a Travellers Choice winner for 2022, 2021, and 2020, and have received a Certificate of Excellence Hall of Fame award from 2016 to 2019. As a preferred supplier for G Adventures day tour activities in Ecuador, we're your go-to for unforgettable experiences.

We are proud to be part of the "Slow Travel" movement, where we believe in being present and savoring time without the rush of ticking off bucket lists. In Ecuador, time moves at a slower pace, which is reflected in our approach to travel. Visit us at our offices in Quito, located at the Basilica Voto National, where the clocks in the bell towers have stood still for years - a reminder that Ecuador demands patience.

Slow Travel is all about connection: to local people, cultures, food, and music. It's a sustainable approach that creates the perfect travel experience, immersing you in the local culture, educating you, and leaving an emotional impact both in the present and future, while remaining sustainable for local communities and the environment. Our projects in the Amazon are the epitome of this style of travel. While not all of our trips are fully optimized for Slow Travel yet, most incorporate some aspects of "Flow Style". Together we create "Slow Flow".

Our "Flow Style" rankings for each trip are based on 3 core characteristics: Novelty, Complexity, and Unpredictability. There are 22 Flow Triggers, driving attention to the present moment. However, we just focus on the 3 for now, our goal is for you to feel alive and in the "Flow" state. The higher the ranking on the Flow Style, the more likely it is to push you out of your comfort zone. If you are here, you're ready to experience more novelty in your life. The more risk you take, the more likely you will enter the "Flow" state. We strive to provide a challenging yet safe environment, so you can surrender to the unknown.

The Best Galapagos Cruises

So you have always dreamt of visiting Galapagos Islands, now is the time for you to start taking the first steps in planning the dream of a lifetime. While for most it means sifting through volumes of information, we like to take a reductionist approach, where “less is more” and “more is less.” This is where experience coupled with harnessing our relationships with our suppliers help to provide the most up-to-date, valuable insight in choosing the right cruise for you.
