Cotopaxi Volcano Day Tour

This tour is going to show you one of the most beautiful places of Ecuador, in a very different way, biking!

Cotopaxi volcano, whose summit rests at 19,347 ft / 5,897 m, is a natural monument because of its unique beauty surrounded by other peaks and wide moorlands, making Cotopaxi National Park one of the most visited natural reserve in Ecuador. In addition, this area offers endless options of different levels for those who love mountain biking!

Our ride starts at 15.100 ft / 4.600 m with a very excited descend on the sandslopes of the giant volcano that take us to the valley at the foothills of Cotopaxi volcano at 12.800 ft / 3.900 m surrounded by amazing Andean views!

After visit Limpiopungo Lake, we will cross ahead towards the north part of the park to begin a last descent to finally, get into an Andean forest at the feet of Pasochoa Volcano in Santa Rita Eco-Reserve at 10.170 ft / 3.100 m! (BL/L)
