We will drive approx. 25km North of Quito to the Mitad del Mundo. Here the 30m tall Monument will tell us of the French-Spanish geodetic expedition of 1736-1744, which determined the position of the equator under the direction of Charles de la Condamine. Here you can stand with one leg on the northern and with the other leg on the southern Hemisphere of the earth and visit the ethnographical museum inside of the monument. Furthermore you visit the Museo de Sol, where you will learn about the culture of the country and its history dating back to the Incas. Afterwards we drive to the nearby-protected area Reserva Geobotánica Pululahua, located in the crater of an extinct volcano. Here you have the opportunity to admire the beauty of the indigenous plant world and the abundant hummingbirds and butterflies. Later on, we return to Quito.
