Ecuador Volcanoes

Fantastic Food, Culture and Climbs to over 20,000 feet / 6,000 meters

Ecuador’s famous Avenue of the Vol­ca­noes” offers some of the finest begin­ner to inter­me­di­ate moun­taineer­ing in the Andes, set amid a fas­ci­nat­ing cul­tur­al back­drop. The com­bi­na­tion of chal­leng­ing vol­cano climbs, charm­ing hacien­das, amaz­ing food, and great Ecuado­ri­an guides makes this one of our most enjoy­able adven­tures and one of the best intro­duc­tions to high alti­tude moun­taineer­ing for advanced begin­ners and a chal­leng­ing trip for sea­soned moun­taineers as well.
