With its Inca ruins, towering volcanoes, vibrant native communities, thick Amazonian forest and scattered remote beaches, Ecuador is a destination well worth visiting for both its nature and its culture. Mountain climbing in Ecuador is a great way to enjoy its rugged wilderness and to practice this thrilling activity in challenging settings. Whether you are looking to put yourself to the test at high altitudes on more challenging climbs, or are a beginner, you will find the perfect mountain to climb in Ecuador. Of course, to get to the best spots and to be safe, it is always best to go with a certified local guide who will be able to sort out the logistics as well.

Furthermore, you can explore the local towns and take back home beautiful knits and alpaca scarves.

Edgar was an excellent guide. I have little climbing experience and Edgar was very knowledgeable and instructive. He is a life long climber and he has tons of experience and passion climbing through out the world. He was pleasant and a very nice guy. Unfortunately, the weather was very bad while I was in Ecuador so Edgar came up with a great alternative climb to Cayambe, which was not in good condition due to storms. He knows the mountains like the back of his hand and can relay tons of information, which makes the trip that much more enjoyable. His 4x4 transport and climbing equipment were all top notch. He understood safety and made sure to avoid unnecessary risks. I will climb with Edgar again.
