Your tour begins with pickup from your Quito hotel between 7am and 9.30am (depending on your preferences. Traveling by private vehicle, set out on the around 2-hour journey, winding through the Andes and passing along the dramatic ‘Avenida de los Volcanes’ (Route of the Volcanoes). Along the way, stop for breakfast (own expense) at a local restaurant and enjoy views of the Limpiopungo lagoon.
On arrival in the Cotopaxi National Park, jump out to begin your hike, following a 1-hour route, in the shadows of the Cotopaxi Volcano. After the hike, saddle up for a 1-hour mountain bike excursion through the paramo grasslands. Since you have your own private guide, you're free to adjust the itinerary to hike or bike more, or skip an activity altogether.
Back at the starting point, your driver will be waiting to take you to a local restaurant, where you can refuel with a hearty lunch (own expense) before driving back to the city.
Return to Quito between 4pm – 6.30pm (depending on departure time), where your tour ends with drop-off at your hotel.
