Hiker in Cajas National Park during an Ecuador vacation

Day 1 Cajas National Park

  • 1 Lunch
This day tour from Cuenca takes you west to Cajas National Park. Over 200 gorgeous lakes are scattered amongst the jagged rocks and craggy valleys that make up the breathtaking landscape of this often wet and foggy park. Set early this morning heading west. An hour drive brings you to Tres Cruces, located on the Continental Divide, for stunning views. Next, transfer to Laguna Toreadora. This beautiful lagoon is the starting point for your morning hike. You will head to the San Luis Polylepis forest and continue to Lagunas Unidas and Patoquinuas before returning to La Toreadora. This hike takes approximately 2.5 hours to complete at an elevation around 12,795 feet. Enjoy lunch at Hosteria Dos Chorrera (beverages not included) and then visit Llaviucu, another beautiful area of the park for a nice hike that lasts about an hour. Return to the hotel around 4:00 PM.

This tour is approximately 5 hours and runs daily.

Kate was great to work with in the planning stage. She was prompt, helpful, and efficient. Our tour guide, Edwin, was knowledgeable and passionate. We were very happy to have traveled with Adventure Life, it made the trip easy and a true pleasure. We could concentrate on enjoying the experience rather than the details of travel.
