About this activity
This is a typical itinerary for this product

Pass By: Nature Galapagos & Ecuador, Av Amazonas N41-95 & Isla Floreana, Quito 170150 Ecuador

At 8am approx. we leave Quito by car driving south for approx. 1.5-hour through the Pan-American highway aka. Avenue of the Volcanoes. We'll then reach the park entrance of Cotopaxi National Park and the get ready to enjoy a fresh Andean-style breakfast.

Drive through pine forest and soon reach the Interpretation Center Mariscal and get to know the volcano and its unique fauna and flora.

Afterwards, and depending on the physical abilities of the group, drive towards Limpiopungo Lake located at 3.800 m or Rinconada camping zone, to enjoy a hike around this stunning environment to observe birds and the magnificent view of Cotopaxi Volcano

Afterwards, get ready yo climb up to the first refugee of the Volcano. The climb has a moderate level for beginners but we do reccommend you acclimatize first before this day trip.

A stop between activities will give us time to enjoy a well-deserved lunch to regain strength.

Say goodbye to the volcano and get in the van again to drive back. We'll be reaching Quito at around 4pm.
