The 'Middle of the World' Tour

Thirty minutes north of Quito Ecuador, you’ll find an amazing "Middle of the World" experience.

At 0° 0’ 0” latitude, here lies the earth’s equatorial line, where you can straddle the planet’s two hemispheres – a great photo op..!!

At this site, you’ll also have a chance to view the Mitad del Mundo (“Middle of the World”) monument, which was built to commemorate the French scientists who in the 1830s made history by determining the shape of the planet thanks to their studies at this location.

And just a few hundred meters away, you can visit the Intiñan Solar Museum, an amusing museum that provides outdoor exhibits of astronomical geography, a solar clock and explanations about the importance of Ecuador’s geographical location. To many people, what makes Intiñan even more interesting than the “official” equatorial monument is that you'll have a chance to participate in several experiments, such as watching water go down a drain in a different direction when placed only inches away from either side of the equator, or balancing an egg on a nail, or using an ancient sun dial, and more.

After the visit, we will drive you back to your hotel in Quito.
