Overview

Book
Ecuador is a fascinating country full of surprises with the lesser known detail that is holds the highest mountain on Earth, Mt Chimborazo, when measured from the Eartha€™s centre rather than sea level. With a diversity of vegetation zones, from the tropical equatorial jungle to the high alpine plateau, Ecuador is dotted with majestic snow-capped volcanoes such as the infamous Mt Cotopaxi. To appreciate these remarkable contrasts we climb a range of peaks, culminating in an attempt on a truly an out of this world experience to reach Chimborazo, the closest place to space on earth. Under the guidance of our mountain guides we undertake glacier training and practice and develop the skills needed for the bigger peaks. Providing you have an excellent level of fitness this trip is suitable for experienced trekkers that are keen to go a step further and climb their first 6000m peak. Visits to the Otavalo market, Quito, the famous Devil's Nose train and a community experience ensure this expedition is more than just mountains but a complete Ecuadorian experience.
