Ecuador, Volcano Trek Open Challenge 2018

15th - 24th November 2018

Astride the equator with Peru to the south and Colombia to the north, Ecuador is the smallest of the Andean countries but is blessed with an amazingly varied geography that gives it some of the world’s greatest biodiversity and makes it one of the most rewarding destinations in South America. With its array of vibrant indigenous cultures, well preserved colonial architecture, otherworldly volcanic landscapes and dense rain forest, it packs its perimeters with more points of interest than many countries twice its size.

This itinerary offers a combination of trekking and comfort in the Cotopaxi Volcano area staying both in Haciendas and camping. It will take us through valleys and Andean communities, private conservation areas, Cotopaxi National Park, archaeological sites though exclusive trails and properties, an opportunity not to be missed.

*Other costs: Approximate airport taxes and fuel surcharges
