The Ecuadorian volcanoes are an exciting paradise for adventurers to explore. Come with me on this 13-day guided expedition and discover one of the most dramatic and spectacular landscapes of South America!
The Ecuadorian Andes Mountains are home to 73 volcanoes. 18 of them are considered to be potentially active. Often covered by glaciers and permanent snow, these mountains outline the Ecuadorian landscape. On this program, I offer you to hike up to the summit of five of the most popular Ecuadorian volcanoes:
- Pasochoa (4,200 m / 13,780 ft)
- Rucu Pichincha (4,696 m / 15,407 ft)
- Cayambe (5,790 m / 18,996 ft)
- Cotopaxi (5,897 m / 19,347 ft)
- Chimborazo (6,263 m / 20,549 ft)
Each day we’ll have a new and exciting place to explore. First, we will start by visiting cultural and historical places in Quito in order to acclimatize. Then, we will do some intensive glacier training in Cayambe. Finally, we will climb the famous Chimborazo volcano (6.263 m / 20,549 ft). Moreover, by staying in countryside farms, known by the locals as “haciendas”, we’ll experience the real life of the Ecuadorian countryside. For a more detailed description of the trip, take a look at the itinerary below!
For this trip, please take into account that all participants must have backpacking experience. Also, a good physical condition is essential. Of course, I will be there every step of the way to help and guide you.
