I will guide you on this truly awesome and spectacular 12-day mountain biking tour of the volcanoes of Ecuador, including an ascent of the highest active volcano in the world, Cotopaxi. We will be navigating the wide open tracks that wind around the expansive red and black terrain, whilst also negotiating the high altitude, and making time to discover and explore villages, towns and cities along the way.

The Ecuadorian Andes is one of the prettiest and most gorgeous sections of the Andes Mountains, with its abundance of natural reserves, volcanic lakes, flora and fauna, and colourful, vibrant villages. Some of the cities nestled within include Quito, Otavalo, Cayambe and Banos.

Our journey begins when we meet at Mariscal Sucre Airport near Quito, where all relevant information about the trip will be given out.

From there we head off in to the volcanoes and mountains of the countryside, with every day providing us with a new challenge, the high altitude physically testing us a we traipse and travail around the epic landscape, scenery and terrain.

The cities of Quito, Otavalo, Cayambe and Banos are full of fascinating and rich histories and cultures, which we get to explore when stopping there.

The centerpiece of our journey is the ascent of the mighty and majestic Cotopaxi, the highest active volcano in the world at 5897m and a unique mountain biking location owing to the myriad of single tracks of the natural reserve near the summit.

After 12 intense days of mountain biking and cultural pursuits, we finish our trip back in Quito having seen and experienced the best that this South American gem has to offer.
