The Avenue of the Volcanoes is an incredible display of the power of nature. One of our favorite locations is Quilotoa Crater, a water-filled 3km-wide caldera to the west of the Ecuadorian Andes in Ecuador. You’ll depart early from Quito and travel through the incredible Andean landscape and several indigenous communities. First stop is a visit with a local family to learn about their life and work, followed by Zumbahua market (only on Saturdays), before reaching Quilotoa Lake. Here you’ll enjoy the spectacular views, hike down into the crater, and then either walk up (an hour) or rent a mule to bring you back from the depths.
This itinerary is designed to give you an idea of the available options for a visit to Quito and the northern Andes. But keep in mind:
