Some of the highest volcanoes on earth can be found in Ecuador, right at the northern end of the Andean Chain; this exciting trekking and climbing holiday will give you the opportunity to climb the three highest! As part of a careful program of acclimatisation, we'll also enjoy a stunning 5-day trek across the Cotacachi-Cayapas highlands, one of the most diverse and spectacular of Ecuador's bio-reserves and ascents of the smaller volcanoes Yanaurco (4535m) and Imbabura (4609m). We've also time for a walking circuit of the amazing Cuicocha crater lake and a chance to improve your mountaineering technique with some skills training, all before we turn our attention to our ‘Big 3’. First in line is Cayambe (5790m), a peak that boasts the only glaciers in the world to actually straddle the equator. Next, we tackle Cotopaxi (5895m), one of the world’s highest active volcanoes. Our last peak, the stunning, snow-capped Chimborazo (6310m), is the highest summit in Ecuador! On the summit, due to the equatorial bulge, you will be 2168 metres further from the earth's centre than the top of Everest. With a varied programme of trekking, climbing, as well as sightseeing and the chance to visit a number of traditional towns and villages, this is a chance to improve your climbing skills, bag some noteworthy peaks, and gain an insight into the history of Ecuador and the colourful culture of its Quechua-speaking Indians.
