About us

Polylepis Tours Cía.Ltda.; was established by a team of enthusiastic professionals in 2011. After years of training and working as local guides, we came together to share their passion for their beautiful country of Ecuador with travelers from around the world. Polylepis Tours is committed to preserving and respecting the local cultures and natural environment and offers you an exceptional opportunity to explore the diversity and beauty that is Ecuador. “Whether you join us for a short walking tour or a two week adventure, our goal is to exceed your expectations by providing an authentic experience with attention to comfort and safety. “ Our company name comes from a distinctive tree of the Ecuadorian Andes, commonly known as “Polylepis” or “Paper Tree”. This species is characterized by its unique structure and for being a home for various fauna such as hummingbirds and an endangered bird known as “The Giant Conebill”. In Ecuador, there are a great variety of these magical trees, however they are considered endangered due to deforestation. By choosing to give our company this name, we highlight our dedication to preserving the natural environment of Ecuador.
