per person

The cultural legacy of the Ecuadorian Andes harbors wonderful treasures left by the ethnicities that inhabited it ancestrally, plus gorgeous landscapes of valleys, mountains, rivers, lagoons and roads. This is the ideal setting for an educational experience designed for family groups eager for adventure and learning, where you will visit the archeological sites of Pambamarca and Quito Loma, enjoy incredible views of the northern Andes of Ecuador and learn about the ethnic groups that inhabited these lands and their ways of life. Cycle down ancient cobble-stone roads and hike around the caldera that forms the beautiful Laguna de Cuicocha and admire its turquoise waters and breathtaking landscapes. The trip ends with a visit to one of the most famous and picturesque craft markets in the world, the Otavalo Market, where artisans and indigenous people from Ecuador exhibit their work at affordable prices. Incredible adventure to ride and hike off the beaten path, learn and interact with ancient cultures.
