Head out of Quito for a tour of Otavalo and its wildlife and market. Begin your adventure by travelling through the beautiful highland province of Imbabura. Stop at San Pablo Lake to take in sweeping views of the Ecuadorian Andes. This place is a photographer’s dream, so now's not the time to realise you forgot your camera!

Continue the trip by paying a visit to a sanctuary that rehabilitates endangered, predatory birds. Home to many bird species as well as one of the world’s most endangered birds - the mighty Andean Condor - this sanctuary does a wonderful job of feeding, housing, and rehabilitating injured and mistreated birds.

Walk the grounds and spot vultures, owls, and eagles before watching an impressive flight demonstration. Admire the agility and skill of hawks and falcons as they fly, dive, and find prey on command.  Witnessing these remarkable creatures in full flight is truly mesmerising!

Next up, we’ll visit an indigenous craft market full of vendors proudly displaying their wares. Wander through the market perusing the wide range of unique jewelry, handwoven rugs, colourful clothing, bright bags, hand-carved ornaments, and vibrant textiles. The quality here is exceptional and unlike anything you’ll find elsewhere, so why not buy a souvenir and support the talented artisans who keep Ecuador’s native cultures alive?  

Stop to enjoy a delicious lunch at a local Otavalo native house and workshop that serves traditional cuisine from ancient recipes. Continue the visit with a wonderful introduction to the art of ancient weaving, traditional clothing, and herbal medicines — all of it explained by our native host, who can introduce you to a legacy of hundreds of years of legends and oral traditions.

Return to Quito after an active day filled with rich and natural wonders, amazing wildlife encounters, tasty cuisine, and cultural treasures.
