Your tour begins with pickup from your central Cuenca hotel in time for an 8am departure. Traveling in the comfort of an air-conditioned vehicle, set out on the around 30-minute journey to the Cajas National Park.
First, jump out to explore the park’s lowlands at Llaviucu, around 10,170 feet (3,100 meters) above sea level, and soak up the scenery on an around 1-hour hike.
Continue by road to the Mirador Tres Cruces, a lookout point at 13,671 feet (4,167 meters) above sea level, which offers spectacular views over the park’s mountains and lakes. In the afternoon, drive to the Toreadora Lagoon and set out on an around 2.5-hour trek through the Forest Polylepis San Luis, passing the Unidas Lagoon, Totoras Lagoon, and Patoquinuas Lake.
After a full day exploring the park’s natural wonders, return to Cuenca, where your tour ends with drop-off at your hotel around 4pm.
