Cotopaxi Hiking and Biking Day Tour from Quito

Select Date and Travelers
2 travelers
    What to Expect
    Meet your guide at Plaza Foch in the La Mariscal area of Quito in time for a 6.45am departure. Set out on the around 2-hour journey, winding into the Andes and passing along the dramatic ‘Avenida de los Volcanes’ (Route of the Volcanoes). Along the way, stop for breakfast at a local restaurant and enjoy views of the Limpiopungo lagoon.

    On arrival in the Cotopaxi National Park, jump out to begin your hike, climbing up to a refuge at 15,780 feet (4,810 meters) on the Cotopaxi Volcano snowline. It’s a challenging hike, but you’ll be rewarded with incredible views over the mountains and glaciers below. Depending on weather conditions, perhaps continue hiking up to 16,400 feet (5,000 meters) before getting ready for the second part of your adventure.

    After being paired with a suitable mountain bike and listening to the safety briefing, set off on an exhilarating downhill bike ride, zipping down the mountainside on one of two trails – suitable for either less-experienced or advanced mountain bikers.

    Back at the starting point, your driver will be waiting to take you to a local restaurant, where you can re-fuel with a hearty lunch before driving back to the city.

    Your tour ends back in Plaza Foch around 4.30pm.

    Please make it to Cotopaxi if you’re able. Making it up to the glacier was the highlight of the week. It really is amazing up there. The hike was a little tough but even if you’re in a serges shape it is doable. Our guide...More

    We fully agree that everybody who visits Ecuador has to visit the Cotopaxi, one of South America's most famous volcanoes and one of its most active ones. With its 5920 m it also one of the world's highest active volcanoes. By bike, by horse or...More

    The daily tour from Quito to the Cotopaxi volcano is amazing, as far as the weather is okay. We had extreme luck with the weather so both activities were really fun. The only thing I have to say negatively about the tour is that when...More

    We scheduled the Cotopaxi hiking and biking tour for our third day in Ecuador. Honestly, as we are in the “older” category I had some concerns about hiking at such a high altitude and worried if two days in Quito was enough acclimation. It turned...More
