Cotopaxi Volcano with snow

Day 1 Cotopaxi National Park

Breathtaking scenery from the world's highest active volcano.

After an early morning drive east towards the Chillos Valley, we'll head south, along the "Avenue of the Volcanoes", viewing the spectacular and breathtaking high plains surrounding the magnificent snow-capped Cotopaxi - the earth's highest active volcano (19347ft/5897m), with possibilities of seeing the Andean Condor. After lunch in the Limpiopungo valley (12540ft/3800m) we'll ascend to El Parqueadero (15180ft/4600m). From this point we'll hike for about an hour to El Refugio, the volcano's refuge lodge (15840ft/4800m). A short walk from here will take us to the nearest glacier. You'll know why we call this experience "Nature's finest thrill"!

This was our first trip to South America and we were a little nervous. But Adventure Life made things so easy! All our questions were answered before we left, and our guide, Vidal, was amazing! He gave us enough space to explore without rushing us along. He also knew where the best picture taking opportunities were, which was great.
