Hummingbirds and Alpackas Adventure

Day 1: Mindo

Meeting point: 06h45, Restaurant Q Plaza Foch

 Mindo is a charming, yet busy town nestled in the hills, at an altitude of 1250m. Beautiful waterfalls, wild rivers, and a gorgeous premontane cloud forest make a trip to Mindo totally worth it.

Prepare to be amazed by the colourful attractions of Mindo, where we’ll visit a stunning waterfall and then head to a butterfly farm where you will have the chance to encounter hundreds of different species of native butterflies. Complete your afternoon with a tubing trip down river, or an adrenaline-charged flight and superb sights above the trees of the thick cloud forest on the canopy ropes course.

 **Night in Quito

Day 2: Cotopaxi Biking

Meeting point: 06h45, Restaurant Q Plaza Foch

Cotopaxi National Park tour is an exciting day that begins with spectacular views of the unique Andean landscape in the “Avenue of the Volcanoes”. Inside the national park we hike up to the refuge which is situated at 4,810m on the Cotopaxi snowline. Depending on conditions we will then hike up to 5,000m where it can be possible to see the glacier. From there you will have spectacular views to the valley below and onto the surrounding volcanoes. After a safety briefing we commence our downhill descent on mountain bikes! There are two sections to the mountain biking, the first of which we recommend to experienced riders. The journey finishes at the beautiful lagoon at the base of Cotopaxi.

 Extra: For this tour you can rent a professional high quality bike for an additional cost starting from $45.

You have the choice between a Rockhopper Comp 29”, Rockhopper Pro Evo 29”, and especially designed for women the Jett 29”.

Before lunch we will visit a local aboriginal home where you have the opportunity to interact with the inhabitants. The tour includes a steep hike down to the lagoons shore.
