Traveling 3 hours via the Panamerican highway to the Quilotoa Crater Lake you will get to observe and truly appreciate many volcanic and Andean landscapes along the way. Hiking the in and outs of the crater is the main attraction at Quilotoa, an emerald green lagoon inside the crater of an extinct volcano with steep jagged cliffs and views straight down the entire Avenue of the Volcanoes! Take a trek into the crater to the lake shore (with optional mule ride out for those with tired limbs). Other activities such as biking and Kayaking are also available at an additional cost. Return to Quito in the late afternoon.
Markets are a great way of complimenting your Quilotoa tour, a welcome addition that is only available on certain days of the week: (Saquisili = Thursdays), (Zumbahua = Saturdays).
