  • DAY 1 HIKING QUILOTOA CRATER LAKE
    Rebecca Adventure Travel Quilotoa Lagoon

    You start your Ecuador Multisport adventure by driving for 3 hours from the meeting point in Quito to the heart of the Andes along the Avenue of the Volcanoes. The ride will take you to Quilotoa, the highlight of the Ilinizas Ecological reserve. Tucked in between rolling mountains of greens and golds, lies this beautiful turquoise Crater Lake, a real gem. You will hike for an hour down into the crater. At the bottom, you will have the option to rent a kayak to go paddling in the lake, and enjoy a jaw-dropping 360-degree perspective. After enjoying this masterpiece of Mother Nature, you will hike back up. There is also the option to hire a mule to take you back up. Once at the top, you will have lunch, and then visit the local handicraft and paintings market before going to the Hacienda where you will stay overnight.

Your day starts with a soothing cup of coca tea, which according to locals helps to ward off altitude sickness, while taking in our surroundings in the beautiful Cotopaxi National Park. Afterwards, you will be ready to hit the trail. Starting at around 15,000 feet and going up to almost 17,000 feet. Due to the steepness of the trail, it will take about two hours to finish. In the afternoon, you will head to Baños de Agua Santa, a lovely town tucked between towering mountain ridges and surrounded by ever flowing waterfalls. Baños is filled with charming restaurants, and is a great place to have a night on the town.
