Every Monday



The Papallacta Hot Springs are just a few hours from the city of Quito. On our tour you can enjoy a full day of relaxation. The day begins with a visit to the lookout of the Papallacta Lagoon where you can admire the beautiful landscape and feel the cold of the moor, then continuing towards the tourist complex: “Termas de Papallacta” Spa. First, we will make a short but pleasant walk along the path “La Isla” to learn a little more about the flora and fauna of the place to later have some free-time to relax in the magical hot springs of the spa. At this time, you could also have your own lunch break, and then continue a day of relaxation until you return to Quito.

Papallacta Lagoon Lookout

Visit The Papallacta Lagoon

The eruption of the Volcano Antisana in the 18th century generated a lava flow that filled in the old glacier of the Papallacta River causing drainage to the Tambo River. This chain of natural events created the lagoon characterized by the dark tone of its waters. Its climate is cold and surrounded by reeds and pads. In addition, spectacled bears, deer, ducks and hummingbirds inhabit its surroundings. According to local legends, the lake is guarded by the 'enchanted father', which is known to prevent passage at night. A stone that rests on its banks represents its figure.
La Isla Trail
