What To Expect

Cotopaxi National Park
The Cotopaxi National Park is an ideal place to start your visit in Ecuador. It is one of the highest active volcanoes in the world, in addition to its cone shape is a symbol of beauty and admiration for its visitors. In this tour you can see its landscapes that are truly worthy of admiration.

Once inside the National Park, we walk towards the Jose Rivas refuge, which is 4897 m, here we will rest a bit to recharge our energy. Once this is done, we will walk a bit more until we reach the glaciers, at a total altitude of 5000 m. On the way back to the parking lot, we will take our bikes to make the descent to the Laguna Limpiopungo. (It's an optional activity)

Once in the lagoon of Limpiopungo, if the weather permits, we can take a beautiful photograph of Cotopaxi. After visiting the lagoon, we will take the bus to the restaurant, where we will have our well-deserved lunch. After a day full of adventures, we will take a break and return to Quito.

Incredible views

What a day hiking! The views were incredible (at least until the clouds came through) and our guide Kevin was terrific. He was friendly, engaging, knowledgeable and most importantly, patient. Hiking up the steep volcano to the refuge was difficult, but he stayed with us every step of the way, despite our frequent stops. He even let me borrow his hiking poles to make things easier. The stop at the refuge was much needed as we rested and enjoyed some coca tea. We made a quick stop Limpiopungo, but didn’t stay long because it was raining. NOTE: We didn’t bike down on this trip.
Incredible experience!

I had high expectations for Cotopaxi tour but this one was simply incredible. I strongly recommend it! Our guide was very friendly. Loved it!
Excelente opção para conhecer Cotopaxi!

Há diversas empresas que oferecem o passeio para conhecer o vulcão Cotopaxi. Escolhi o tour da El Barak por conta da atenção que me deram durante minha pesquisa e também pelo seu custo. Foram super atenciosos durante todo o passeio. Guia e motorista locais que conhecem muito, e nós ofereceram uma grande e segura experiência! O resto fica por conta da natureza, e da adrenalina em descer alguns quilômetros de bicicleta ao final. Altamente recomendado!
