Some of the highest volcanoes on earth can be found in Ecuador, at the northern end of the Andean Chain. Starting out to the north of the capital city of Quito, we gain acclimatisation with 5 days of scenic trekking that includes the ascent of Imbabura (4609m / 15121ft). We then turn our attention to the ‘Big 3', each of which is climbed from a high refuge. First in line is Cayambe (5790m / 18996ft), a peak which boasts the world's only glaciers which actually straddle the equator. Next, we tackle the challenging Cotopaxi (5895m / 19341ft), Ecuador's second highest summit. Descending to Riobamba, we have time for some well-earned R&R before setting out to climb our last peak, the stunning, snow-capped Chimborazo (6310m / 20702ft). This justifiably popular trip includes a varied programme of trekking and climbing, as well as the chance to visit a number of fascinating towns and villages.
