Avenue of Volcanoes holidays

Fertile valleys, patchwork fields and soaring snow-capped volcanic peaks form a chain south of Quito along the Avenue of the Volcanoes. Venture into Cotopaxi National Park, home to the highest active volcano in the world, discover the emerald-green Quilotoa crater lake, stay at a historic hacienda and explore small villages with colourful weekly markets.

Further south is Riobamba, a lively trading town surrounded by volcanoes. From there, continue through fields and river gorges to picturesque Alausi for an exciting train ride along the switchbacks of the Devil’s Nose.
