Program

Cotopaxi National Park tour is an exciting day that begins with spectacular views of the Andean landscape in the Avenue of the Volcanoes. Once inside the national park, you will hike to José Rivas Refuge (4,864 meters), and maybe even to the glacier (5,100 meters). During the hike, you will have the opportunity to discover the amazing flora inside the reserve.

Later, once you are at the refuge, you will hike back to the parking lot and then have the opportunity to bike downhill to the largest lagoon of the park, Limpiopungo Lagoon. This will be about 18 kilometers of biking to enjoy the landscape. Then you will go have a nice lunch, followed by an overnight in Chuquiragua Lodge including dinner.

You will wake up and enjoy a nutritious breakfast, pick up and start your tour. Quilotoa is an exotic volcano with a beautiful lagoon inside its crater. The emerald colored waters offer the opportunity for kayaking after a joyful walk to the beach of the lagoon. On the way to this volcano, you will have the opportunity to visit an indigenous market to share with the locals.

Following that, you will also be part of the normal living of the people that live in the highlands, and you will continue the journey to the last stop at the Toachi Canyon for the famous picture of the end of the world. After you reach the bottom and have enjoyed the kayak, you will return to the town of Quilotoa for lunch, after which you’ll return to Quito.
