Your guide will be happy to meet you at 9 AM at your hotel and take you on this 8-day private round trip to one of the best sights of Ecuador! Our first day starts with a tour through the largest and best preserved historic center in Quito. After lunch we will be heading to Otavalo, an indigenous town only 2 hours away from Quito. But before getting there we will make two interesting stops; the equator line near Cayambe and the San Pablo Lake viewpoint. The overnight will be spent in a comfortable tourist class hotel in Otavalo.

On our second day we will visit the famous handicraft market, see why Cotacachi is known as Ecuador´s leather capital and observe Peguche´s beautiful 18 meters high waterfall. For the overnight we will return to Quito. 

On the third day we will visit the beautiful Quilotoa Lake. Here we will visit the viewpoint and make an exciting hike towards this 3-kilometre wide greenish lake. Back at the top of the crater we will start our 2 hour drive to Lasso where you will have dinner and spend the night in a hotel near the Cotopaxi National Park entrance. On our way we will have a great opportunity to explore a traditional indigenous fruit & vegetable market (depending on the day if we are able to visit one of these markets). 

On the fourth day we only have to drive for about 10 minutes to reach the National Park. Inside the park we will visit the Cotopaxi Museum and Visitor Center, the Limpiopungo Lake and make the unique and adventurous hike up on the volcano starting at the parking lot at 4.500 meters above sea level. (if the weather permits it, if not we will make a hike around the Limpiopungo Lake). In the afternoon we will make our way to our hotel in Baños, which will take us about 2 hours approximately. After the check-in you can relax in the natural hot springs nearby, known for their healing properties due to various minerals.

On the fifth day we will explore the town and the waterfall route, which has many beautiful waterfalls to observe such as the Agoyan, Manto de la Novia and Pailon del Diablo. You can take some thrilling cable-car rides across the valleys offering you a more closed up view. We will spend the night in the same hotel in Baños. 

On the sixth day we will be heading towards Tena, our launching point for our three day jungle experience. Three hours and a half later we will be welcomed with a refreshing ice tea and lunch in our jungle lodge, where we will be staying for two nights. You are going to make several exciting hikes, go on a fun river tubing excursion, visit Misahualli to see the monkeys living inside the town and learn about the ancient customs and everyday life of the Kichwa indigenous community.

After making the check-out at the lodge we will be traveling back to Quito. On our way we will make a stop at the Papallacta Hot springs for a true relaxing experience! In the afternoon you will be left back at your hotel.
