Central Highlands

Towering volcanic peaks form a dramatic, snow-capped corridor through the center of Ecuador, an area brimming with Andean tradition and a hub for outdoor excursions. The Avenue of the Volcanoes is synonymous with high octane adventures, whilst traditional haciendas and charming colonial towns dotted throughout provide a welcome and relaxing contrast.

Bustling markets showcase a riot of colorful artesian crafts and folklore abounds, while a patchwork of fields zig-zags its way up the steep inclines as age-old agricultural traditions prevail. Spend your days on horseback or exploring on foot, speed down the slopes of Cotopaxi on a mountain bike, stock up on traditional souvenirs at the famous Otavalo Market or simply enjoy spectacular scenery as you peer into the endless azure waters of the Quilotoa crater lake.
