Full-day Ingapirca, Gualaceo & Chordeleg from Cuenca

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
    What to Expect
    This is the perfect option for people with limited time, combining two tours into one: Ingapirca and the artisan villages of Gualaceo and Chordeleg. 
    We start our tour with a ride through the enchanting highlands, enjoying amazing views along the way.  We arrive at Ingapirca which is Ecuador’s major Inca archaeological site.  Sun worshippers built this fortress-temple in Cañar valley.  It is located approximately 60 miles northeast of Cuenca at 10,500 feet above sea level.
    We continue our tour to Gualaceo and Chordeleg, two charming villages famous for handicrafts. We will visit a workshop where artisans produce the finest silver filigree in Ecuador. There will be time for shopping or simply admiring the interesting atmosphere of the town.
    Our final stop will be at a local family’s workshop where we’ll see the process of weaving shawls and ponchos on antique looms, using dyes extracted from plants.  At the end of this full-day tour, you will be returned to your hotel.
