Climbing Excursions

Climbing Excursion

Andeanface has designed its Climbing Excursions as independent ascents to eight of Ecuador's ten mountains above 5.000 m / 16,400 ft, like Chimborazo, Cotopaxi and Cayambe.
All of them are to be done in two days if departing from Quito, but we can arrange to pick you up from another town or city that might be closer to the mountain you choose to climb.

The idea of creating your own itinerary, gives you the advantage of combining some of this single ascents while you are exploring a certain area of the Ecuadorian Andes.
In any case we would suggest specific combinations based mostly on the fact that to climb some mountains, you need to have a very good acclimatisation and a fair knowledge of mountaineering techniques. The climbs we suggest can be single day Trekking Excursions that are in order of ascension, so you can develop an ideal acclimatisation process.

Additionally we would suggest some cultural tours or other activities as complimentary extensions depending on the area where the mountain is.

Remember that our speciality is the organisation of well-developed itineraries, so we can design you an exclusive expedition. Let us know your requirements and ideas.

Each one of the following options presents its own challenges, from long journeys to technical terrain. Please click on an image to select a Climbing Excursion:
