After a tasty dinner and maybe making some new friends, we will lit the wood stove in your room for a relaxing end to your day.
Day 2 – Quilotoa Crater Biking
If you enjoy a fast flowing track combined with some easy trails, this ride is for you. We start with an early transfer to Sigchos from where we cycle along the easy road direction to Chugchilan. Throughout the tour there will be many opportunities to take photographs and interact with the friendly local people. We will stop in the village of Chugchilan where you can go for a short walk.
From Chugchilan we continue on a paved road that will gradually ascend until we reach the community of Quilotoa. You can enjoy the stunning views over the emerald green lake and the impressive surroundings. We hike downhill inside the crater until we reach the shore where we will enjoy our boxed lunch. To get back, you can either rent a horse or hike up.
Then it’s time to slowly head back to Isinlivi, either by car or by bike – you decide!
In the afternoon, relax your muscles in the Jacuzzi or enjoy the sauna area.
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.
