- Visit one of Ecuador’s highest volcanoes
- A sanctuary for many species of wild bird
This is a first-rate Ecuador gift experience for anyone with a passion for the Great Outdoors. Depart Quito (with a hotel pick-up) and head to the mighty Antisana Volcano, 18,800 feet above sea level. Here, in a national park, you’ll discover a habitat that provides sanctuary to many forms of Andean wildlife, from deer and wild rabbits to birds and even the immense Andean condor. You’ll travel through the foothills of the volcano, into the wetlands and even hike up to the glacier. The scenery is sublime, the chances of spotting wildlife are excellent, and the air is about as fresh as it gets.
There is a fair bit of walking involved on your Quito gift experience, so suitable footwear and a degree of stamina are required. But it’s so, so worth it. Spectacular Andean vistas, a volcanic backdrop for your photos, and the chances of seeing condors in flight if you’re really lucky. White-tailed deer and rabbits run around, and your guide will impart plenty of interesting knowledge about the local area and its flora and fauna. An essential Quito sightseeing tour for nature-lovers.
