Private 4-day trip to Sangay National Park and Chimborazo Reserve

This is the moment for some volcano watching in the Central Andes. With good weather and a bit of luck, you can see Sangay volcano erupting on our day tour to Sangay National Park. The next day head to Chimborazo, admire the graceful viciñas and learn about the volcanic history of this huge mountain. Enjoy beautiful paramo lakes, optional bike ride and a visit to the Pueblo Magico of Guano.

Our 4-day package is a completely private tour for parties of minimum 2 people, so it will be just you and the guide.

Wit clear weather you may be able to observe one of the eruptions of Sangay volcano.

Day 3 – at 8 AM start private day tour to Chimborazo, Ecuador´s highest snowcapped peak.
