Tropic is the first boutique tour operator dedicated to celebrating ecotourism in Ecuador. A National Geographic World Legacy Award winner, Tropic has specialized in responsible tourism through high­ quality operations and exceptional service since 1994. We are at the forefront of crafting authentic, creative and unique adventures throughout Ecuador, resulting in transformational experiences for travelers. We are guardians of Ecuador’s treasures – our diverse cultures, incredible biodiversity and rich natural resources. Tropic is made up of an expert team of sales and operations professionals with offices both on the mainland and in the Galapagos. We know that the quality of guiding is one of the most important factors of any trip. We deliver the best possible experience for our guests exploring Ecuador by investing heavily in our guiding community. Our novel Guardians program aims to ensure our guides feel they are a part of something communal ­ something bigger. We are proud of our guiding program, and our commitment to caring for the well­being of our ambassadors representing us on the ground. Tropic has unique lodges in the Andes and Galapagos. Three Galapagos lodges partner with us ­ our own Galapagos Magic tented camp in the Santa Cruz highlands, Lava Lodge on Floreana and IsaMar on Isabela – creating local development bases and allowing us to manage a land circuit with the Tropic touch, true Galapagos character and sustainable ethos. We partner with local communities in the areas that we visit, ensuring that travelers have an authentic Ecuador experience.
