Enjoy a day adventure in the real Andes.Four times in the week, there is an early departure from Quito to the Cotopaxi National Park from Quito. The Cotopaxi is the highest most active volcano in the world. When is not cloudy, you have a beautiful view on it. From Quito, it is a two-hour ride. If you want, you can stop on the way to have breakfast. At the park entrance, there is a Cotopaxi Interpretation Centre to learn the basics of this great national park. You will start the hiking part at the “Limpiopungo” lake. The bike ride is about one hour and brings you into the beautiful paramo landscape. It’s a stunning experience to see the nature environment change slowly from dry volcanic ashes to green scrublands.
