Biking and Rafting Tandayapa Rio Blanco 2 Days
Day 1 - Calacali/ Tandayapa
Early departure from Quito, toward the village Calacali which lies not far beyond the equator line where we will start our downhill bike ride from 2900m, passing by several haciendas and gorging on the stunning scenery that leads up to the quiet little village of Nono where time seems to have stood still. We will stop for a box lunch and continue down the hill through a spectacular rain forest and on to a trout farm where we will relax and try our hand at fishing. Dinner
