Full Itinerary

After we pick you up at the Meeting point at 8:00am, we will drive south down the Pan-American Highway. Along the way, we will have the opportunity to have majestic views of the Avenue of Volcanos, part of the central Ecuadorian Andes! Our ride will take place in Cotopaxi National Park named after one of the highest active volcanoes on earth, which at just over nineteen thousand feet, is a sight to behold and one of the most stunning in Ecuador. We will bike next to the volcano’s base at 13.000 feet, on dirt roads and single tracks surrounded by an other-worldly landscape dotted by rocks strew about by the volcano during its last major eruption. Depending on your luck in this area, you might see wild animals such us: deer, alpacas, lamas, bulls and horses. The ride is about fifteen miles and mostly on flat terrain. To finish our day we will picnic with a lovely view of some Inca ruins and then return to Quito.
