Tour itinerary

Day 1

Quito, the capital of Ecuador, TeleferiQo cable car, Traditional restaurant

We arrive in Quito, the capital of Ecuador, and check into a hotel. This is the second highest capital in the world, which is located at an altitude of 2850 meters above sea level. The city is surrounded by picturesque mountains. This must be seen from above! We ride the TeleferiQo cable car to climb to the top of the active Pichincha volcano to an altitude of 3945 meters above sea level. The views are incredible! We see the entire city surrounded by mountains and jungle. 

We get down to the city and go to a traditional restaurant for dinner. Ecuadorians love all kinds of grilled meats, fried green bananas, cassava roots, potatoes and corn. You can also try one unusual local delicacy qui - a grilled guinea pig.

Day 2

The equator mark, Town of Otavalo, Traditional market

In the morning we take a bus to the town of Otavalo (about 2 hours on the way). On the way we will stop at the center of the planet, literally! This is the place where equator crosses Ecuador - the exact place is marked with lines on the asphalt. Nearby is the Museum of the Peoples of Ecuador, where we can learn more about the dozens of nationalities that inhabit the country.

We reach Otavalo and get acquainted with one of the peoples of the country in reality. Locals speak their own language and wear unusual traditional clothes - white blouses with a cape, large beads and dark scarves on their heads. The main local attraction is the colorful bazaar, one of the largest on the continent. We will watch bright national clothes and other traditional handmade textiles. Jewelry lovers will be delighted with the abundance of silver earrings and rings. In the evening we return to Quito.

Day 3-4

A town of Banos, Swing over the abyss in Casa del Arbol, Paylon del Diablo waterfall, Zip lines, Thermal springs

In the morning we take a bus to Banos (3.5 hours on the way) - a town in the valley near the active volcano Tungurahua. We check into a hotel and go to the Casa del Arbol mountain. Here we will have a very unusual adventure - the famous swing over the precipice! Swing harder, like in childhood - and the ground disappears under your feet and a sharp precipice opens. Wild jungles of bright green color float far below, to be exact 2660 meters under your feet! 

Next morning we take a zip line over the rivers and gorges. This is not a swing, this is a real flight! We take a breath, rent bikes and start our trip to the Paylon del Diablo waterfall. We will cycle about 2 hours down. The road goes along the river, passing picturesque cliffs and waterfalls. We reach the waterfall and take another zip-line directly to the waterfall. Take a rest, enjoy nature and the calming sound of water. We put bicycles on the special car and return to Banos by this car. 

In the evening, relax in the natural sulfur thermal springs. A perfect end to a busy active day!
