  • This Cotopaxi 3-day ascent includes acclimatization and is perfect for less experienced climbers.
  • On the way, you will enjoy awe-inspiring views.
  • Enjoy the delicious local cuisine as part of the experience.


This 3-day Cotopaxi ascent will take you up to the summit of one of world's most emblematic volcanos. Before tackling the 5897 meter-high summit of Cotopaxi, we will climb Rumiñahi volcano, which will serve as acclimatization.

The tour begins with a pickup at your accomodation. From there, we will head to the Cotopaxi National Park and climb up Rumiñahi. The following day, we will have time to rest in the hut and enjoy some delicious typical cuisine. At night, we will begin to climb Cotopaxi. We will reach the summit on the following day and then have time to enjoy a replenishing breakfast before returning.

This program is designed for climbers of all levels. However, keep in mind that you will need an excellent fitness level and a sense of adventure.

If you would like to climb this emblematic mountain in the Ecuadorian Andes, make sure to send your request! I look forward to being your guide.

What people are saying about this trip



As the Cotopaxi Volcano was closed, there was a change of plans and I made the first summit at the Corazon Volcano with the guide Daniel, who helped me a lot along the way. And instead of climbing Cotopaxi we went to Cayambe which is a beautiful mountain! Juan went with me to the Cayambe summit and he is a great guide! Super patient and motivated me on the journey. Although I wasn't able to reach the summit because I wasn't feeling well, we managed to see the sunrise from the mountain plateau and it was beautiful! A show of nature. Thank you Juan
