Ecuador: Avenue of the Volcanoes

ECUADOR: Avenue of the Volcanoes Trek in Ecuador's volcanic backbone, learn ice-skills and climb Cotopaxi The 'Avenue of the Volcanoes' in Ecuador is liberally sprinkled with some of the world's highest volcanic peaks. This comprehensive trek combines serious volcano climbing with some cultural highlights. We acclimatise with the Pinan Trek amongst the rolling highlands of the Cotacachi-Cayapas Reserve and ascend Yanaurco (4530m) before heading south to climb Imbabura Volcano. We visit the Indian market at Otavalo before practicing our ice-skills on Cayambe Volcano's glaciers, the only ones in the world that cross the equator. The focus of the trek is the tough but non-technical ascent of Cotopaxi (5897m), the world's second highest active volcano. Our acclimatisation is carefully planned and with thorough ice-skill training and a client to guide ratio of 2:1 on Cotoapaxi, you have the best chance of reaching this spectacular summit.
