Chilcabamba Lodge offers cosy, rustic accommodation in Ecuadorian Andes ideal for walkers and lovers of mountain scenery

This rustic mountain lodge in the Avenue of the Volcanoes in the Ecuadorian Andes is situated at 3,500m but is dwarfed by the much higher peaks which surround it. There are epic views of Cotapaxi volcano, and everything about the location invites you to step outside and explore; plenty of activities are on offer, including walking and horse riding.

The lodge is mindfully eco-friendly, constructed from recycled materials but the shiny wooden furnishings and earthy colours give it a cosy feel, enhanced by the open fire in the living room. The lodge welcomes up to 24 guests in seven independent rooms equipped with private bathrooms with showers and three family cottages. They all have in-room stoves.

Wifi is sporadically available and there's a laundry service. The lodge is managed by a couple who do not speak much English but are helpful and welcoming. Simple meals are served.
