DAY 1: CAYAMBE VOLCANO LINE TO SAN CLEMENTE COMMUNITY

It is going to take us 2 hour to reach the beginning of the glacier of Cayambe volcano at 15,000ft (4500mt). This is the only volcano on earth whose summit is crossed by the equator line and the only snow-capped mountain directly on the equator. We will start our adventure with a short hike to the glaciar, then we will bike down the slopes of this magical mountain to reach the middle of the inter-Andean valleys. Later in the afternoon, we will be transferred to the slopes of Imbabura volcano to enjoy a cultural encounter with local people and learn their traditional way of living. Our accommodation for the night will be a home-stay at different local families of the San Clemente community.

Accommodation: San Clemente home stay.
