Kick off the 11-day hiking adventure with two days in sophisticated Quito, a UNESCO-listed city high in the mountains. Then set off to visit a range of trails toward stunning volcanoes, lakes, and national parks—plus a memorable waterfall—while staying in unique villages and towns along the way. Return to Quito to enjoy one more night in Ecuador's capital before departing.

It’s well worth planning a trip around one of the big market days in nearby indigenous villages: Sigchos on Sunday, Zumbahua on Saturday and, best of all, Saquisilí on Thursday. All have an authentic vibe, and feature clothing, textiles, ceramics, livestock and loads of other wares. The clean air is ideal of outdoor activities, and you can go mountain-biking around Quilotoa Lake, hike through Andean valleys or go rock-climbing at Tangán and Zumbahua.
