Depart from Quito through the Pan-American North Highway via Cayambe. You will have the opportunity to taste the delicious Bizcochos de Cayambe, a type of cracker or bread baked in a clay oven, great paired with local cheese or caramel sauce. Afterwards, make a brief stop at "Miralago", to admire a wonderful view of Lago San Pablo and other amazing views.

The tour then continues to Otavalo where Otavaleños (natives) set up a market in which a bartering manner of shopping is taking place. The market hosts a variety of different handcrafted items.

You may choose between staying longer in Otavalo or go to visit to the leather shops at Cotacachi. On the way to Cotacachi, we will visit a traditional workshop of Andean instruments "Ñanda Mañachi" located in Peguche and then reach Iluman, land of shamans and healers, where we will have the opportunity to witness an ancestral indigenous ritual by a Shaman.

In Cotacachi you have enough time to visit the village, the shops of leather goods and free time for lunch. Return to Quito picking up passengers in Otavalo (spot determined by Gray Line Guide).
