Traveling by private vehicle, set out on the around 45-minute drive to the Mitad del Mundo – the ‘Middle of the World’ – to see the famous Equator line. While you’re there, visit the Intiñan Museum, where you can pose for photos on the ‘equator line’, learn more about Ecuador’s indigenous people, and watch a demonstration of the Coriolis Effect.
A short drive from the Mitad del Mundo is the Pululahua Crater, one of only two inhabited craters in the world. Here, you’ll have chance to visit the small town and shop for handicrafts and souvenirs, then drive to the top of the crater, a wildlife haven shrouded in cloud forest.
After taking in the views, tuck into a delicious empanada before setting out on the return journey. Return to Quito where your tour ends with drop-off at your hotel. Please note, transportation from outside the Urban Zone is available for an additional cost.
