Choose from different hikes in the Andean Forest, where you can learn about the fauna, flora, and its importance to the surrounding ecosystem. The two options for excursions vary in difficulty to ensure that there is something for everyone.
La Chorrera Path: Viewing the waterfalls. We take you on a gentle hike through a complex of stunning natural waterfalls that cover both sides of the path and cascade down from the crags as the river from the Peine peaks makes its descent from the Cayambe Coca Ecological Reserve.
River Path: On this tour, we cross the wetlands and the high primary forest, while trekking on an ancient glacial valley where prehistoric plants and wet forest vegetation can be found. Upon arrival at our final destination, we take a relaxing bath in the natural hot springs between two volcanoes, the Volcano Cayambe and Volcano Antisana. Papallacta´s thermal waters contain sulfates, sodium, calcium, chloride and are said to be anti-allergenic, anti-inflammatory, diuretic, and anti-rheumatic.
The afternoon is spent enjoying the facilities of the spa and the natural plunge pools, all surrounded by the peace and magic of nature.
