    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.

    You 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 with rocks strew by the volcano during its last major eruption. Depending on your luck in this area, you might see wild animals such as deers, alpacas, lamas, bulls, and horses. The ride is about fifteen miles and mostly on flat terrain.

    To finish our day, you will have a  picnic with a lovely view of incredible Inca ruins and then return to Quito.
