Highlights include views of the Cayambe, Imbabura and Cotacachi volcanoes from the Cotacachi-Cayapas Ecological Reserve, diverse wildlife in Pasochoa, and a chance to see Andean Condors on your way to Limpiopungo Lagoon.

You'll stay in local haciendas and eco-lodges, feast on local food, and experience the culture of Ecuador's Andean villages. Since most days will include 3 to 6 hours of running, hiking and other outdoor activities, you'll enjoy this retreat most if you have a base level of fitness and enjoy being in nature. You will reach an elevation of 14,000 feet above sea level, so some experience with altitude is also recommended.
