    Day 2 – Quilotoa Daytrip

    Get up early for a refreshing yoga class. After breakfast our driver will be waiting for you to take you to the incredible Quilotoa Crater Lake.

    According to local stories, Quilotoa is “the lake of the God of duality”, the God of eruptions that take away all that is in its way and the God of depths. The Crater Lake will literally take your breath away! It’s just a half an hour hike down from the viewpoint to get to the lake side and 1 hour hike back up the 280 meter vertical ascent. It is possible to rent a horse to get back up. At the lake shore you can rent a canoe to explore the lake and its fumaroles.

    On Saturdays this tour is combined with a visit to the Zumbahua indigenous market. On Sundays this day is combined with a visit to the Market in Sigchos.

    Day 3 – Horse riding

    In the morning our local guide will be waiting for you to take you for a 3 hour horse-back riding trip through the surrounding mountains of Isinlivi. You will go down into the Toachi canyon, through the river and a small indigenous village. Take in the beautiful natural landscapes without having to walk on your own two feet.
