Full Day Tour departing from Quito

“Cotopaxi is one of the highest active volcanoes in the world and exploring its slopes will be an experience of a lifetime.”

Not only is the national park filled with breathtaking views, but it also offers an opportunity to explore Andean moorlands and observe unique species as the condor, the paramo wolf, Andean fox, wild horses and endemic bird species and flora. This full day tour is ideal for you if you are short on time, looking to see a little more of Ecuador and its impressive landscapes.

Your tour will begin leaving from your hotel where your private guide and driver will pick you up. You will drive south where it is possible to see many different peaks on the road towards the Cotopaxi National Park, which is why the highway is known as the “Avenue of the Volcanoes”. Once inside the park one of the highlights will be the exploration of the Limpiopungo Lagoon. Here you can see various Andean birds, brooks and streams coming down from the foothills of the Rumiñahui volcano. On a clear day you’ll have a spectacular view of the Cotopaxi volcano dominating the landscape and shimmering in the reflection of the lagoon. Since this is a private tour, your guide will focus on your personal interests and physical conditions. If you feel up to it, you can reach the parking lot to hike up to the refuge of Cotopaxi where many times the snow line reaches the refuge. In the afternoon, you will return to Quito where you will be returned to your hotel.
