Papallacta Thermal Baths & Lunch

:: (Full day, daily from Quito) ::
Adventurous spirits will enjoy a tour through the high plateau of the Andes. This is the habitat of the condor, the puma, bears, and other species, which belong to this area.

The "Termas de Papallacta" (Papallacta Thermal Springs) owns the "Rancho del Cañón", a protected area of 250 hectares (625 acres) located at the entrance of the ecological reserve Cayambe-Coca.

The Papallacta River crosses both the hacienda as well as the high section of the valley, and it offers to the visitor a spectacular view of the Antisana Volcano (5.704 meters / 19,800 feet above sea level). In this beautiful area, we offer walks along the ecological paths, where nature lovers can appreciate the local flora and fauna.

This area is a treasure for ornithologists, with more than 160 different species of birds, including hummingbirds, tangaras and occasionally the great Andean Condor.

Afterwards, enjoy the Hot Springs of Papallacta, whose thermal waters emerge from deep geological layers through fissures up to the surface. This will be a day of nature, health and relaxation.

Included in the tour is private transportation, bilingual guide, entrance fee to the public Thermal Springs and lunch.

Price includes:

  • Full day tour
  • English speaking guide driver
  • Lunch at Papallacta resort
