This option is less physically demanding. Add this trek easily to any of our programs that stop in Quito.
The Isinliví-Quilotoa Route combines the beauty of the Sierra landscapes with the opportunity to glimpse the traditional rural communities living in the heart of the Sierras. Another bonus to this trek is he comfort of having cosy hotels instead of tents waiting for you after demanding days of walking. The main trek ends at the town of Quilotoa, a small indigenous and mestizo village situated on the rim of the still active Quilotoa Volcano. On the last day of the trek, we strongly advise a further 10 km trek around the rim of the crater all the while enjoy the view towards the emerald-colour water crater lake.
