Get the best of all worlds and combine history, nature and shopping on a full day guided tour from Quito. You'll witness spectacular scenery, see the active volcano Cotopaxi and the Limpiopungo Lagoon - all before returning back to Quito!
Departing from Quito by bus, you'll travel to the National Park of Cotopaxi and Hacienda and take in beautiful scenery of Ecuador along the way.
First, you will arrive at the Cotopaxi Volcano National Park and stop at the museum to learn about the diverse flora and fauna surrounding the park. Then, you will take a short walk to admire the impressive active Cotopaxi volcano, which stands at a towering 19,000 feet (5,900 meters). Continue on to the Limpiopungo lagoon, from which, depending on the weather conditions, you can admire the environment and observe condor birds.

A very fun day with an excellent guide! We especially enjoyed the hike on Cotopaxi, even if it was somewhat cloud covered at the time. We got luck later in the day and had a fabulous look at the entire volcano. Lunch at the hacienda was delicious.
