Description

It’s a honor for me to propose you this guided climbing trip in the best Ecuadorian Volcanoes.

As a local guide with a big mountaineering background, I have no doubt this trip is a great option for you. It’s a perfect combination of stunning summits and all the technical challenges climbers love.

DETAILS OF THE PROGRAM

First of all, we’ll climb some small summits in order to acclimatize our bodies. Then, we continue the acclimatization process until we are finally ready to the main goal: Chimborazo Volcano.

Besides that challenging climb, you will also reach the following summits:

  • Corazón Volcano

  • North Iliniza 

  • South Illiniza

  • Antisana

  • Cayambe

  • Carihuairazo

Moreover, we’ll spend some resting days in the city of Baños and the nice Papallacta Hot Springs.

If you want to know more about this climbing trip in the Ecuadorian Volcanoes, please find the complete itinerary at the end of the description.

Take into account this program is very flexible. I can adapt it according to your expectations and wishes. 

Please do not hesitate to contact me for any additional questions. It will be a pleasure for me to lead this big adventure. I have no doubt you’ll love the Ecuadorian Andes as much as I.

About the guide

UIAGM/IFMGA Mountain Guide from Ecuador.

I fell in love with the mountains at a young age while climbing Ecuador’s volcanoes with my father. I guided in the Andes for 8 years and have been guiding for the past four years in the Northwest United States. In 1997 I expanded his adventure skills by taking on rock climbing. I represented Chimborazo province three times as the Ecuadorian National Rock Climbing Champion.

I completed his UIAGM certification with the Bolivian Mountain & Trekking Guide Association, accredited by the National School of Ski and Alpinism of Chamonix (ENSA), and completed Advanced Alpine and Rock Guides Courses with American Mountain Guide Association (AMGA).

I usually spend some months every year in Ecuador (from October to January, but it varies every year). The rest of the year I am based and guide in Europe.

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
