This adventure manages to wrap culture, volcanoes, activity, nature and more into four days, showcasing the diversity of Ecuador. We start in Quito with a fascinating guided tour of the capital, including visits to a traditional bakery, Plaza San Francisco, La Ronda and Plaza del Teatro, before taking the cable car up to Pichincha Volcano, boasting panoramic views of the city and surrounding mountains.

It’s then time to travel south to the famous ‘Avenue of the Volcanoes’, where we’ll wind through the spectacular Andes, past desert paramos and traditional villages. We’ll stop at Lake Quilotoa, a 3km volcanic crater with a breathtaking emerald-coloured lake, before continuing to Baños. An exhilarating day in this natural paradise awaits, as we head to the Pastaza River for a day of white-water rafting and canyoning down five waterfalls, with views of the majestic Tungurahua Volcano. On our final day we visit a local weaving artisan and learn about his traditional indigenous culture, before stopping for lunch in a town surrounded by snow-covered peaks.
