Itinerary

Day 1: Quito - Quilotoa Lake - Indigenous Market

From Quito, you’ll travel south direction through the famous "Avenue of the Volcanos" to Quilotoa. On the drive, you'll have the opportunity to enjoy the spectacular views of the Andes, Quilotoa lake, and the colorful landscape of the moors that surround it. Upon arrival, you can descend to the edge of the Crater Lake and return on horseback, or simply take a walk around the rim. In order to get in touch with local communities, a visit to a local indigenous market will be arranged depending on the weekday.

Day 2: Cotopaxi - Baños

Cotopaxi Volcano is 5,897 meters high, it's second highest peak in the country and elegantly adorns the Cordillera Real of the Ecuadorian Andes. You will enter the Cotopaxi National Park for a close encounter with the Paramo biodiversity and an ecological explanation of its importance.

After a short hike, let the adventure begin! You will continue to the parking lot (4500 meters above sea level) in order to ascend the first refugee of the volcano (4810 meters above sea level). You can rest and eat some hot soup at the refugee and / or continue the ascent to the Glaciers (depending on weather conditions). Then you will drive to Baños town.

Day 3: Baños and Waterfalls Route

After half an hour drive, you will take a short hike to visit the "Treehouse" where the National Geographic photo contest winner was taken. Then, you will continue your drive for about 45 minutes, making several stops along the waterfalls route, before reaching “Pailon del Diablo” waterfall. After a two kilometer hike, you will reach this magical place, one of the top ten largest waterfalls found in Ecuador.

Day 4: Chimborazo - Riobamba

From Baños, you will drive for about two hours to visit Chimborazo Wildlife refuge, Chimborazo is the highest peak in Ecuador and the highest peak in the world measured from the center of the earth. There, you have the chance to take a one-hour hour hike up to the second refuge, nearly 16,000 feet (4,875 meters above sea level).

This is also a great opportunity to do mountain bike activities down the slopes of Chimborazo to outings around rural villages along backroads, ranging from beginners to advance bikers. (Optional activity for an extra cost).

Day 5: Devil's Nose Train - Ingapirca - Cuenca

%From Riobamba, you’ll travel 60 miles south to the town of Alausi. There, you'll experience one of the most interesting attractions in the country. At 11:0 you'll board "The Devil’s Nose Train". In its day it was considered one of the greatest feats of railroad engineering that the world had seen.

Then, you will continue to Ingapirca archaeological site, it’s the largest Incan ruins in Ecuador which encapsulates the sophisticated Inca design, architecture, and engineering. You’ll discover how the Incas merged their own community with the Cañaris, native indigenous. After that, you will drive to Cuenca.
