Avenue of the Volcanoes Holidays

Nineteenth century German scientist and explorer, Alexander von Humboldt, christened this spectacular area Avenue of the Volcanoes. The stunning Avenue of the Volcanoes stretches south from Quito for 325 kilometres between a line of 19 volcanoes in the Cordillera Occidental and 20 volcanoes in the parallel Cordillera Central. At 5,987 metres, Cotopaxi is the world’s highest active volcano. This and the majestic peaks of Tungurahua and the 6,310 metre high Chimborazo can sometimes be spotted above the clouds as you approach Quito by air.

A tour of Cotopaxi National Park can add tremendously to a wonderful journey down south from Quito towards Riobamba, where you can join the Devils Nose Train from Alausi. The region offers visitors many attractions such as colourful local markets, Inca ruins, characterful hacienda accommodation, hiking, fishing and horse riding. The haciendas are only a few hours drive by road from Quito and we highly recommend a few days here if you can fit this into your holiday itinerary.
