ANDEAN ADVENTURE RIDE
8 DAYS | 7 NIGHTS
YEAR ROUND

Ecuador - picture postcard views around every corner

An exhilarating journey amidst the volcanoes; crossing lunar-like landscapes into the remote, seldom-visited val-leys behind the perfectly conical, snow-capped Cotopaxi volcano. A challenging ride, incredibly varied in both pace and terrain as we traverse valleys, grassy plains, lava flows & wetlands.

 
8 DAYS / 7 NIGHTS 
ITINERARY

Nights are spent in a wonderful mix of working Haciendas, mountain inns & isolated farmhouses, built in a variety of materials including the traditional Adobe with thatched roofs and original Inca stone. One night is spent in little cottages in a hamlet, supporting a truly excellent local community project.
