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.
