Cajas & Cuenca City Tour

This morning visit to Cuenca’s historic heart will give you a chance to see its beautiful colonial and republican architecture, as well as its sacred art museums and markets, the most outstanding of which is the flower market. Cuenca is a fantastic place to understand how the popular Ecuadorian souvenir, the “Panama” hat (which despite its name, originated here in Ecuador), is crafted, by taking a tour of one of the factories here. The tour rounds off with a different perspective of the city at the cliffs suspended above Tomebamba River and then finally the Turi lookout point, which rewards you with sprawling views of Cuenca’s terracotta roofs and blue domes of the Cathedral from above.

In the afternoon, venture 15km west from Cuenca and you’ll find the picturesque Cajas National Park, a protected reserve awash with some 200 lakes which date back to the Ice Age, connected by rivers that flow into the Pacific and Atlantic Oceans. The park is laced with hiking trails and this guided tour takes you on an easy hour walk through the lower cloud forest, an area rich with birdlife, before continuing onto a slightly more challenging hike around a glacier lake past tundra and Polylepis forest, transporting you to what seems like another world.
