Discover Parque Metropolitano in Quito with us! Take a chance to live magical moments and lose yourself in a beautiful forest. Let yourself be enchanted by the natural spectacle of the birds, plants, natural surroudings in the most wonderful ANDEAN FOREST in Ecuador's capital city. Together, in the footsteps of history, we will discover the traditions of ancient cultures, ceremonies and the history that still affects us today.
We’ll also have a traditional lunch (vegan or vegetarian) at a small community nested in the middle of the forest. Later on, we walk by an old “hacienda” house. The tour ends at the doors of the popular La Capilla del Hombre (Museo de Guayasamín), another place you must visit in Quito.
This tour is a 4 hour walk with up and down hills and is a perfect first step to adjusting to Andean altitudes for all summiteers!
