Tour Highlights
Depart from Quito driving south through the inter-Andean valleys until we reach the entrance to the Cotopaxi National Park. Explore the park looking out for wildlife while driving by many volcanoes in the area such as Ilinizas, Sincholagua, Rumiñahui and Pasochoa. Arrive to Limpiopungo Glacier Lake and prepare the mountain bikes to ride through with spectacular highland plateaus while observing highland (paramo) vegetation and fauna, such as llamas, wild horses, ducks, gulls and even the magnificent condor. Ride mostly downhill to compensate for the high altitude to the Pucara Inca Ruins. After a nutritious lunch and snacks return to Quito to arrive late afternoon. (L)
