This journey through the aptly-named “Avenue of the Volcanoes” offers breathtaking views of the dramatic peaks, scenic lagoons, extensive moorlands, and mysterious cloud forests from Quito to Cuenca. The combination of spectacular scenery, charming colonial architecture, traditional country villages, and indigenous communities, known for their colorful folklore and remarkable weaving abilities, is an unforgettable experience.
Eight of Ecuador’s ten highest summits are found in this area, and your itinerary can be modified to include more hiking and trekking. Ecuador also boasts an enormous concentration and variety of bird species – we can arrange for a birding guide and extended visits to lodges in wildlife-rich areas if that is your passion. Please inquire about other custom itinerary options to fulfill your particular interests.
