Tour description

The Andean landscape in Ecuador will be even more spectacular exploring it by bike! Don’t think about it, come with us and we will provide you the best equipment that you will require to get to Cotopaxi National Park. Besides enjoying the highest active volcano at 5,897 meter (19,347 feet), we will get to Limpiopungo Lagoon to admire the reason why Cotopaxi means Moon’s throne. Inside the national park we hike up to the refuge which is situated at 4,810meters (15,780 feet) on the Cotopaxi snowline. This is mainly a hiking tour trip combined with an optional part of downhill biking. Please also note that this is a shared tour (other travelers in the group) and budget tour (basic mountainbikes and basic food).
