Tour Information


Overview
  • Antisana is just a worthy glimpse in the heart of the Andes between 10500 ft to 15000 ft a.s.l. An early departure from Quito brings you to the western entrance of Antisana Ecological Reserve, just about 30 miles southeast from Quito, with a mixture of habitats from montane forest below and paramo grassland above.  Enjoy the fascinating Andean scenery and Antisana Volcano (18,886 ft a.s.l.) the fourth highest peak of Ecuador covered by the largest glacier in the country.

    Get inspired by nature and see many high altitude wildlife specialties along the way, including Ecuadorian Hillstar visiting the Chuquiragua bushes, the iconic and vulnerable Black-faced Ibis and many other species at the beautiful lake "La Mica".

    The tour includes a delicious lunch at Tambo Condor while admiring the hummingbirds flying around the flowers and feeders in the garden. Here you have privileged view of the most important Andean Condor nesting and roosting sites. Drop off at your hotel.

This was a great tour once it got started. The guide and driver were late, which they blamed on horrible traffic accident. We got going 90 minutes after expected. But the rest of the day more than made up for the snafu at the beginning. Santiago was our guide, hugely enthusiastic and knowledgeable. On the ride to Antisana, Santiago regaled us with tales of Quito's troubled water system; the city is dependent on glacial melt for its water and the glacier will almost certainly be gone within a few decades. We had a great weather day with fantastic cloud-free views of Antisana; even Santiago called it a 10 out of 10 day. We also got very lucky as a) Santiago knew the location of a condor nest with a 5-month-old chick; plus, when we first got to the viewing stand, the male condor was flying around but soon came in to land on a cliff near his mate so Santiago was able to get both of them in his spotting scope very quickly. There was ample time for all four in our party to get a good look, either through the spotting scope or through our own binoculars. The lunch spot is great, with a beautiful setting and lots of hummingbirds darting around. (We had stopped there earlier in the day, too, for an altitude-adjustment tea -- very helpful for those of us traveling from sea level in New Jersey, U.S.A.) Santiago's English was exceptional; the best guide we had on our 12-day trip through Ecuador. Highly, highly recommend this trip for the scenery and the infectious enthusiasm Santiago brought to spotting various Andean birds. We agree with other reviewers that you don't have to be a huge bird enthusiast to enjoy this one-day outing from Quito. This would have been a 5-star review except for the late start, which may have been out of anyone's control.
