Hike & Bike Tungurahua – Full Day Tour Description

Banos, Ecuador has many characteristics that make it unique, one of them is that it is located under the incandescent mantle of the active Tungurahua volcano, thanks to which we have hot springs, mountainous trails and spectacular views. Located at 5.020 m, Tungurahua volcano is definitely one of the many attractions that you need to see if you visit Banos and especially if you are a lover of heights and adrenaline. Our hike and bike Tungurahua tour combine adventure activities that will delight those who seek excitement and adrenaline. On this tour you will test your resistance first by hiking to the refuge at 3.800 m and later by biking downhill on a rocky road, skidding and feeling a whirlwind of adrenaline. Do you dare to break the limits of fear on this 4x4 tour?
