Join Santiago, an experienced guide, on this mountaineering adventure to reach 3 of the most impressive peaks in Peru, Cayambe, Cotopaxi and Chimborazo. Don’t miss the chance to stand at the summit of this three wonderful places.
Cayambe is a mesmerizing active volcano. And it is located at the highest point on the equator line. Here, you’ll experience something unique. The sensation of standing right at the line that splits Earth in two, the Northern and Southern Hemispheres.
Then, Cotopaxi is another impressive volcano, and Ecuador’s second highest peak. What’s more, it holds the record of being the tallest active volcano in the world.
Finally, Chimborazo is also known as the “King of the Ecuadorian Andes”. It is considered the highest point on the planet, if you take the distance from the center of Earth.
The itinerary I propose follows a thrilling path that combines high altitude mountaineering with some more moderate and pleasant treks. Therefore, it is the ideal way to explore some of the most beautiful places in the Andes, while getting a good dosage of adrenaline from a high altitude expedition.
Moreover, during our journey, we’ll visit many enchanting towns, with great cultural and historical significance. Then, we’ll explore the countryside, visiting some farms and staying at lovely hotels and cozy mountain huts.
Please note you need to have a excellent fitness level to join this trip. However the technical difficulty of the three ascents is moderate. Also, I will be there for you the whole time, making sure you are having lots of fun, and that you are safe all throughout our journey.
So don’t miss out on this amazing opportunity to reach the summit of three of the most wonderful peaks in Ecuador. Request to book this trip, and let me guide you on this fantastic mountaineering adventure.

I still remember clearly the first sunrise I witnessed from the summit of a peak. Ever since, I've devoted my life to the mountains and everything that has to do with them.
Im a climber at heart, a mountain guide, climbing coach, outdoor educator, traveler and photographer. I've chased adventures around the globe for the past decade of my life, climbing in every continent. Now, at 28, Im based back in Ecuador where I was born and raised, although traveling and exploring remote corners of the world continues on top of my to do list.
Im passionate about sharing the mountains with people like you! In the mountains I live and work under these rules: safety, fun, summit. Im already looking forward to sharing a sunrise with you!

I was looking for a local guide for a hike I was planning and came across Explore-Share. They seemed to have good reviews and so decided to give them a try. The experience was very positive and completely happy with their service. I will be using them again for next trip.

Thank you explore-share for a wonderful via feratta experience. We have been wanting to learn for a long time but don't have the facilities in Scotland. The guide Mitja was extremely helpful and knowledgeable, answering all my many questions and providing advice. On the day head to take another group but he quickly arranged another guide Borut, who was brilliant. We had a fantastic morning learning via ferrata at Hvadnik in the gorge. It gave us the confidence to later hire our own equipment and go out in Mojstrana. Altogether a five star + experience. Thank you.

Hello! I have been thoroughly impressed by the service and assistance that explore-share have provided the past couple years in helping to plan my trip to the High Tatras in Poland. I really appreciated the flexibility that they provided in allowing me to rearrange my trip twice owing to covid. They were responsive and communicative throughout. This trip was part of my Stag weekend celebrations and explore-share connected me with an outstanding guide in the form of Marcel - he was an excellent recommendation and we really enjoyed our guided hike in the High Tatras with him. Marcel was an outstanding professional, placed a high focus on preparing well and staying safe, and was also a great guy! Highly recommend. Many thanks and best wishes - Richard
