We depart from Quito heading south, following the “Avenue of the Volcanoes,” heading for the city of Baños. This wonderful little city sits at the feet of the active Tungurahua volcano. On the way, we can admire the green valleys of the Ecuadorian highlands, and see one of the highest volcanoes in Ecuador, Mount Cotopaxi; the second highest active volcano in the world. If the weather permits, we'll enjoy a spectacular view of this perfect snow-covered cone. After a drive of about three hours, we'll reach our destination, where a comfortable hotel expects us. Here, we’ll leave our gear and begin our adventure. Baños is a quaint little city surrounded by pristine waterfalls, hot springs, and a variety of fascinating outdoor activities.
3 Days / 2 Nights
Day 1. Pailón del Diablo — The Devil's Pot
You can reach this stunning waterfall canyon either by motorcycle, bicycle, or quad-car. We'll eat lunch, and then hike down for about 45 minutes along a signaled trail surrounded by lavish vegetation towards the edge of a roaring waterfall. We'll return to the hotel in our private vehicle and the rest of the afternoon will be free. After a wonderful dinner, we'll end the day dancing at a traditional nightclub full of local color accompanied by our guide.
Day 2. Canyoning / Hiking
After breakfast, we'll continue with a dose of adrenaline. You can choose between hiking and canyoning. After this, we'll have lunch and hike to “The Tree House”. This is a wonderful place from where we can observe the Tungurahua and its regular volcanic activity from the "swing at the end of the world" that is famous in Ecuador. We will finish the day bathing in relaxing thermal pools, followed by a delicious dinner.
