Enjoy elevated camping at our family-run, organic farm, Granja Urkuwayku, located on the Ilaló Volcano. You have access to your own furnished kitchen, library with loft as well as bathhouse, with hot water and dry latrine (no to little smell!). For breakfast, we include farm-fresh yoghurt, granola, eggs, bread, juice, and coffee. Beer is extra. Over 100 kms of walking and biking trails surround, including hot springs and bus service to Quito just minutes away.

Le logement
Granja Urkuwayku is a family-run organic farm on 5 hectares. Through water harvesting and creative use of plants and animals, over 15 years we managed to transform a degraded wasteland to an oasis that becomes greener with every passing year. We offer a glamping platform tent (queen-sized bed) with endless space for pitching further tents. If space is needed for additional guests, we have mattresses available in the loft of your kitchen/library. We grow over 50 crops, including European vegetables, Andean grains and roots and tubers as well as fruits and medicinal herbs. We also rear guinea pigs (a local delicacy), chickens for egg production, and bees for honey. There is a trampoline and swing-set for the kids. We are active in Ecuador's agroecology and food movements and have close ties with pioneering farmers, chefs and food activists. You can learn more about Granja Urkuwayku at:

Accès des voyageurs
Guests have full run of the farm as well as access to the surrounding volcano. Hot springs await just 3 kms away (a 20 minute walk) in the Village of La Merced. If you would prefer not to cook your own meals, we would be pleased to recommend provocative local restaurants and cafes.

Autres remarques
Further to hiking about Ilaló, you can use Urkuwayku as your base camp for hiking or mountaineering on six surrounding volcanoes (Pichincha, Pasachoa, Ruminahui, Sincholagua, Ilinizas Norte and Sur) as well as the glaciers Antisana, Cotopaxi, and Cayambe, all within a two-hour drive. If the outdoors were in your plans, we'd be pleased to share our experience and recommend a highly qualified biking, rafting or mountaineering service.

Please note that camping involves a degree of exposure to the elements, and climate on the equator and at high altitude can be extreme. Visitors should arrive prepared for a diversity of weather. In addition, please note that we have multiple animals (chickens, guinea pigs, cats, dogs, bees and other insects) and plants (vegetables, field crops, fruit trees and other species) on the farm. If you have a particular allergy or other concern, do not hesitate to consult us before making a reservation.

My wife, Myriam Paredes, and I are organic farmers, food activists and academics. We have worked with agroecology movements in Central and South America over the last 25 years. Our research addresses questions of local potential and sustainability in agriculture and food, but, to be honest, our true passions reside in practical farming and good food and conversation. We are avid backcountry folk with extensive experience on the trails, ridges and peaks of Ecuador and elsewhere in the Andes.
