2 DAYS ANDES ADVENTURE COTOPAXI & QUILOTOA

For the past 4000 years, the Andes Mountains have become a natural bridge where many cultures have based their existences and are still forming their history. The local Gods are alive and felt through the fertile soil provided by the active volcanoes. Rich traditions and customs sprinkle the mountain range. The Andes are best experienced through local trips, which allow you to experience daily life. This trip will give you that unique opportunity to discover Volcano Cotopaxi, Quilotoa Crater Lake. Explore with local people and enjoy the landscapes, biking through the paramos of the volcanoes and farm fields, staying in nice warm farm hotels.

DAY 1: COTOPAXI NATIONAL PARK

The Andean landscape in Ecuador will be even more spectacular when exploring it by bike! Do not think about it, come with us and we will provide you with the best equipment required to get to Cotopaxi National Park. Besides enjoying the highest active volcano at 5,897 meters (19,347 feet), we will also experience Limpiopungo Lagoon and learn the reason why Cotopaxi means Moon’s Throne. This is mainly a hiking trip combined with an OPTIONAL downhill biking portion. Please contact us for additional information! We will spend the night at the farm hotel

DAY 2: QUILOTOA LAKE

 

Tour takes us to one of the most beautiful lagoons in Ecuador and South America, the amazing Laguna Quilotoa, and surrounding villages. On day trips that occur on Thursdays, we start our day with a visit to the famous local market of Saquisilí. On Sundays, we visit the market in Pujili instead. Continuing our trip, we pass through the indigenous villages of the area which provide a fantastic chance to see the true Ecuador. When we arrive at the spectacular Laguna Quilotoa, we hike down to the Laguna and back up again in a stunning two-hour hike tour. Down there it is possible to go kayaking. It is also possible to hire mules for part of the trek. Paying special attention to the culture and rural life of indigenous Andean people, this trip is a wonderful opportunity to see the beauty of Ecuador in all of its forms.
