We will depart from Quito to the Andean paramo and will visit the protected area surrounding the Cotopaxi Volcano known as el Boliche. Be dazzled by the beauty of this unique ecosystem and on a clear day the impressive view of the colossal Cotopaxi volcano can be seen, one of the highest active volcanoes in the world. We will continue our trip to the city of Ambato, a small city filled with colorful landscapes and well known for its beautiful flowers and extraordinary fruits. From here we’ll travel to the station of Urbina and might have a chance to meet the last ice merchant himself, Baltazar Uscha. He is the only one left of a long-time tradition of merchants that used to climb to the skirts of the Chimborazo Mountain to harvest ice and sell it to the wealthy people of the city Riobamba. As we visit perhaps you can try some original ice-cream made with ice brought from the highest mountain of the Andes.
