Avenue of Volcanoes

Ecuador’s Avenue of Volcanoes runs 200 miles south of Quito, creating a dramatic landscape of valleys and peaks, some of which soar to heights above 5,000 metres. It’s a lovely range for hiking and horse riding.

Why the Avenue of Volcanoes?
Travelling through the Avenue of Volcanoes yields remarkable views no matter how you see it, but none quite like hiking or horse riding through the fantastic trails. This is the home of Cotopaxi, the highest active volcano in the world. Cotopaxi has erupted more than 50 times in the last 300 years and is flanked by dozens of other volcanoes both active and dormant – if you’re seeking adventure, this is the place for you!

Throughout the Avenue of Volcanoes you’ll find small towns with local produce and handicraft markets, and heritage railway fans should be sure to include a journey aboard the Devil’s Nose Train. This is a hair-raising ride through switchbacks between Quito and Guayaquil, changing 500 metres of altitude in just 12 kilometres.
  • Remarkable landscapes across 200 miles of volcanoes.
  • Home of the famed Cotopaxi volcano.
  • Hiking, climbing and horse riding activities.
  • Cultural connections in small towns.
  • Heritage train journey aboard the Devil’s Nose.
  • Exclusive accommodations throughout the Avenue.
