2 DAY - QUILOTOA & COTOPAXI VOLCANO

2 Days

31 miles (50km) south of Quito in the province of Cotopaxi, the Park is located at 5897 meters above sea level, and rising majestically above the Andean mountains, the Cotopaxi volcano is Ecuador's highest active volcano. The Park is surrounded by haciendas and trails that provide the opportunity for hiking, mountain biking, horseback riding, and trekking. Inside the Park there is the Limpiopungo Lagoon where you might see Andean gulls, rabbits, llamas and horses.
At approximately 93 miles (150km) there is the Quilotoa Lagoon which is a water-filled caldera with turquoise and green waters surrounded by mountains full of ancient tales. This caldera was formed by the collapse of the volcano in an eruption that took place approximately 800 years ago.
