Gardens & Trails – the High Sierras of Ecuador

We head back again! Join us on an exploration of the unique environments on and around the equator – we stay in the high sierra mountains – it feels like springtime – all year long! Enjoy touring the rim of Cuicocha lake, the magnificent raptor preserve overlooking Peguche valley, the leather village of Cotacachi. The energetic hikers will want to visit Mojanda lakes. You will stay at the contemporary “healing hotel” of Sachaji with new yoga studio with views of Imbabura volcano and lake of San Pablo! Local craft families will welcome you to their studio and homes. Not to miss is the Saturday Otavalo Market bustling with people and local goods. There is a travel day for 2 nights in the Intag cloud forest at a private refuge to experience birdwatching in this unique part in the world; then it is a change in climate and cultures to the capital city of Quito at 9,300 feet with its top ranked restored colonial old town -a short walk to churches, museums, and World Heritage site landmarks! Your trip wraps up at Hacienda Cusin , a restored 1602 hacienda in San Pablo de Lago, with acres of flower and vegetable gardens, walking paths, and many common rooms – each beautifully decorated with historic artifacts from the region.
The trip is recommended for artists, writers, photographers, yoga practitioners.
Travelers should be in very good health and be able to walk easily on cobblestoned paths.
