Overview

"There’s a reason the South American Andes is spoken about with awe, and the cone of Ecuador’s Cotopaxi volcano is the icing on this mountainous hunk of cake. Scraping the sky at more than 5800 metres above sea level, the stratovolcano is currently snoozing after chucking a tantrum in late 2015, when it spat smoke and ash into the air. Rug up for altitude and thunder down its foothills on a 30-kilometre cycling trip with Biking Dutchman Tours. A back-up vehicle will carry you up high, where you’ll swing onto the saddle of a 21-speed mountain bike and head off-road, winding through ancient lava fields and past wild horses grazing in grassy plains studded with wildflowers. Stop at Incan ruins, enjoy a homemade picnic lunch, and spot the snowy giant reflected on the surface of Limpiopungo Lake... " GET LOST MAGAZINE

Alex, our guide, was knowledgeable, patient, and an excellent cyclist. Bikes, helmets, and other gear were in well-working condition. Great food at lunch, with great company. We went to Cotopaxi, beautiful scenery, an unforgettable experience, and well worth the $59.

I'm an experienced road biker, not a mountain biker, so the day-tour from the Andes slopes to Papallacta hot springs was a thrill. It was raining (bring a waterproof jacket), and the path was mud, puddles, ruts, rocks, gravel, sharp downhills, and snaky turns, all...More
