Towering between the capital city of Quito and the town of Latacunga is the mighty Cotopaxi Mountain. This active snow-capped strato-volcano is a proud icon of the Ecuadorian Sierra highlands & a staple excursion for active explorers. Adventure Life's team of South America experts has put together a great list of tours including multisport tours for high-energy travelers, horseback riding opportunities, and even chances to work with the local communities on conservation projects that help preserve & protect the beautiful nature of this fragile ecosystem. Cotopaxi is notable for its striking symmetry & breathtaking beauty, and as recently as 2015 it showed signs of life as it bellowed harmless smoke & ash thousands of feet into the sky. But don't worry - Adventure Life will make sure that it is 100% safe for your trip.
