Description

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.

2 Day Shared Tour

Andes Adventure Cotopaxi & Quilotoa

Itinerary

2 Day Shared Tour

This 2-day trip combines two of the most exciting activities around the Andes: Cotopaxi bikes and Laguna Quilotoa, all with a one-night comfortable stay at the Hotel in Machacho! When you start the tour on Thursday, you will begin with the Quilotoa tour and on the second day, you will do the Cotopaxi tour.

DAY 1: COTOPAXI NATIONAL PARK

Ready for an active day tour to the Cotopaxi volcano? We will drive you safely and fast to the Cotopaxi National Park. After breakfast, get ready for an intense hike up the 5,897 meters (19,347 feet) tall volcano Cotopaxi. This makes the Cotopaxi one of the highest active volcanoes in the world! You can hike up to 5000 meters (16,404 feet) to a spectacular glacier. Think that is already amazing? The Andean landscape in Ecuador will be even more spectacular when exploring it by bike! Don’t think about it, come with us and we will provide you with the best equipment. After the bike ride, we will also experience Limpiopungo Lagoon and learn the reason why Cotopaxi means Moon’s Throne. This is mainly a hiking tour trip combined with an OPTIONAL downhill biking portion. We will spend the night at a hotel in Machachi Town. Please contact us for additional information!

DAY 2: QUILOTOA LAKE

This one-day cultural 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 Quilotoa Crater Lake, 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 Quilotoa day tour is a wonderful opportunity to see the beauty of Ecuador in all of its forms.
