  • QUILOTOA

    The Quilotoa Loop is most definitely for the outdoor lover. This is basically a loop that takes people trekking through hills, valleys, volcanoes and a crater lake. Generally, it is a self-guided 4-5 day adventure in which you stay in hostels along the way.

  • VILCABAMBA

    This is a very laid-back town with a decidedly bohemian vibe—in fact, inhabitants here are said to be among the most peaceful you can find. There are spas and resorts mixed with budget friendly hostels. It truly is an eclectic experience.

  • AVENUE OF VOLCANOES

    This phenomenon spans 200 miles and consists of seven peaks towering above 17,000 ft high. Reaching and consequently exploring all of them could (and should) take several days. From the tallest Chimborazo to one of the most breathtaking, Cotopaxi, take your time and enjoy!
