Ecuador does of course have a pre-Columbian history worthy of interest, as well as colonial cities with undeniable charm, such as Quito or Cuenca, but it has other unsuspected treasures. Imagine that in a few hundred kilometres you can pass from the Amazonian forest to the Pacific coast at the foot of the mythical Cotopaxi volcano and its almost 6,000 metres high! And we haven’t talked about the Galapagos Islands yet… Did you say treasures?
After exploring the capital La Paz ranging 1,000 m from uptown to popular areas, reach the shores of Lake Titicaca and its natural and cultural heritage, which includes the life of its inhabitants on the well-known floating islands. Then, over three days, ride down 3,000 m on mountain bike through the high-altitude tropical forest and then the jungle, with many things to see along the way. Enjoy a few more days and go for a rafting descent or, for experienced mountaineers, dare climbing a 6,000 !
Encounter Bolivian culture in all its forms: hectic in La Paz, ancient and mysterious at Lake Titicaca with the vestiges of the Tiwanaku civilization and contemporary with the inhabitants of the floating islands, the salt workings, only means of survival around the Salar flat, and finally explore the Altiplano and its natural wonders. Stay a few more days and immerse yourself in the colonial cities of Sucre and Potosi.
You are guided by a real expert on this area of the world; as you go along the famous Carretera Austral, experience, by foot, horseback or boat, the fabulous ice fields and the extraordinarily coloured lakes, and the welcoming way houses.
