Ecuador Adventure´s logo not only represents unrivalled experiences in nature, culture, learning, comfort, and adventure – it is an ancient Andean symbol representing the center of life and time. Our logo is The Sun of Eight Points, a powerful emblem that dates back to pre-Incan times adoring the sun god, Inti. The Sun of Eight Points is more than a symbol, it is a highly advanced astronomical and geographical tool identifying the precise location of latitude 0°. The shape of the sun icon is formed by the shadow of the sun as it rises and falls on each of the four seasons. During the solstices, it is perfectly aligned with the surrounding temples and volcanoes. The Sun of Eight Points represents the center of life and time, as it is the only place on earth where the sun can be precisely measured throughout the year.
