DAYS 216 – 217: ECUADOR
Half a day’s drive away, in Ecuador, you will return to the small town of Otavalo and make an overnight stop. Here is a great place to stock up on those last minute Andean handicrafts such as jewellery, woollen goods, blankets and bags that you saw at the start of the trip.
The next morning you will make your way to this epic overland tour’s final destination, Quito, where the trip ends on arrival.
Quito is the gateway to the Galapagos Islands and a playground for hikers and mountain bike fans, and it’s certainly worth taking an extra couple of days to explore the city and surrounding areas.
