Trip reference number: EVC
Trip Operator: Andean Trails
Ecuador's abundance of both accessible and challenging volcanoes make this the perfect trip to learn ice-climbing skills and set yourself a tough challenge.
Each of the first three volcanoes we climb has been selected to acclimatise you perfectly for the two main peaks – Cotopaxi (5,897m) and Chimborazo (6,310m).
Climbs are fully supported and led by qualified bilingual, English-speaking guides, and are open to all, as you learn the ice skills required during the glacier school in the trip. We also provide the technical kit you need.
As well as pushing yourself to new heights, the acclimatisation walks bring you close to the diverse highland landscapes of Ecuador.
You see indigenous communities as you hike through areas replete with fascinating flora and fauna. And once you pocket the summit of Chimborazo you can look back at a climbing adventure holiday of a lifetime.
Read Kat's blog about her climb, and contact us to plan your perfect Ecuador climbing trip.
If you have some more time, think about visiting the Galapagos or the Amazon to rest those ice climbing bones.
