Great food and plenty of it. Snacks by the fire before dinner, unlimited portions of our famous banana bread, free tea, freshly brewed coffee, drinking water and more.




Take our Cotopaxi National Park tour with a hike up to the climbers base camp at 4,864m and glacier at 5,000m (conditions permitting) with optional mountain biking back down the volcano, go horse riding across spectacular high Andean plains, or just relax in a hammock with a good book. *Tours/Activities on this day are not included in the package deal price – see our website Activities & Adventure page for full details and prices.


This extinct volcano last erupted more than 100,000 years ago, well before the last ice age ended. However, the fertile soil, remote location, and difficult access mean that it remains relatively untouched and is now home to some of the most beautiful and ancient forests in the Andes. Rated as one of the best treks in Ecuador, we have our own private trail through a private ecological reserve. We hike through the primary cloud forest and across the high Paramo grasslands to the summit at 4,200m. The mountain is home to puma, spectacled bears, Andean wolves and more. These animals are rarely seen, but we do occasionally see condors inside the crater. Approx. 6-hour return trip with friendly guides, snacks and drinks, and a late lunch waiting for you back at the hostel.


Most activities run from approx. 8:00am to 2:00pm, so you can do any activity on your last day.
You’ll need to check out of your room by 10:00am, but you are welcome to stay for lunch. Most guests head off at around 3:00pm.
