This Cayambe biking trip is designed for experienced mountain bikers. The Cayambe volcano at 5.790 m. is the third highest in Ecuador and one of the few iced peaks. The road is demanding but wonderful. If the weather is ok, it is possible to hike up to the Cayambe Glacier at 4.900 m. You will start the day driving for 1,5 hours in north direction from Quito. Here you pass the equator line and arrive to the Northern Hemisphere. At a beautiful hacienda where you can already start enjoying the view of Cayambe. You’ll have a local drink (canelazo) and a local snack (bizcocho). If you are a mixed group, the guests for horseback riding start their ride here. You will embark in a strong 4×4 jeep with the bikes and start driving towards the Cayambe refuge at 3.800 m. From there you walk up the mountain and if the weather is ok you can go up to the glacier. And then you bike all the way back down to the entrance of the National Park. A delicious 3 course lunch will wait for you at the Hacienda. Then its time to go back to Quito.
