Antisana might be less famous than Cotopaxi or Chimborazo but that is also what makes the charm of this natural reserve. It is completely unspoiled and it is one of the few places in the world where you can observe Andean condors.
If you feel like discovering something a little bit unusual, you will love Antisana. A little less well-known than Cotopaxi, it is a wonderfully tranquil national park, just an hour from Quito, where one of the main highlight is to observe condors. You will be switching between hiking and mountain biking to make it a very active and enjoyable day.
The tour starts at 6:30 am in Masaya and you will then travel for 1,5 hours before having breakfast at the entrance of the Park. Then you will start searching for condors at 9 am, while the guide gives you explanations about the area, the volcano, the fauna and the flora of the park.
After this little warm up, your heart rate will start rising as you will be ascending the volcano up to the Mica Lagoon viewpoint, a very peaceful and unspoiled landscape. After taking a few minutes to enjoy the moment, you will get on the mountain bike and ride back down to the entrance of the park and have lunch before returning to Quito at around 3:30 pm.
Walking: 1,5 hr Bike: 45 min
