Explore Cotopaxi on your Terms

On your custom Ecuador tour, a Cotopaxi tour can be a highlight of any trip as you will find yourself sandwiched between two parallel chains of snow-smothered Andean summits. Cotopaxi or the Avenue of the Volcanoes as it’s affectionately known, is a place of cinematic, almost mystical beauty. On either side of the 202-mile Andean road are dozens of vertiginous volcanoes, both active and sleeping – their dizzyingly steep slopes leading sharply up to mist-shrouded summits. Included among them is Chimborazo, Ecuador’s highest peak. This 20,000-plus-feet behemoth was believed to be the highest mountain on the planet up until the early 19th century, when the discovery of Mt. Everest saw it knocked off its post. ecuador-cotopaxi-description-02Dotted around the fecund bases and foothills are various indigenous and colonial settlements.
