In Ecuador’s Highlands you’ll walk the Hacienda Trail, a scenic path running between the luxurious accommodations in which you’ll stay. With snow-clad summits and massive volcanic peaks as a backdrop, your days will be filled with unexpected moments. Stroll through picturesque Andean villages, meet welcoming residents, and linger at their frequent festivals. Savor the picnic of a lifetime on the 12,000-foot rim of Cubilche Volcano, or investigate the 1,200-year-old Caranqui Mounds and stop at a condor restoration project.
Go from hummingbird-stitched cloudforests to the wildflower paradise of Cotacachi-Cayapas Ecological Reserve and Laguna de Cuicocha’s volcanic crater lake. Visit the sprawling market at Otavalo before relaxing at your historic hacienda and digging into a gourmet feast of Ecuadorian specialties. Cap your experience with a visit to a local school, a ride on a gentle Zuleteño horse, and an afternoon in historic Quito, a bustling city of museums, galleries, boutiques, and engrossing stories your guide will gladly share with you.
