We are picked up at the hotel in the morning and then drive to El Ángel. There we start the excursion with a nice walk to the lake “El Voladero” at 3800 meters altitude. Here we mainly see ‘frailejones’ and small polylepis trees around us. Both plant species are typical for that region. After this nature walk we go to Salinas, a village where a nice lunch is waiting for us. Around 3 pm we take the train to Ibarra. The train crosses mountains, tunnels and sugar cane plantations to finally arrive in Ibarra, where the driver will be waiting for us to drive back to the hotel.
Recommended: sun protection, raincoat, warm fleece or pull, water (min 1 liter), camera.
