Trekking Excursions

Trekking Excursions

Our Trekking Excursions have been designed as day hikes that will allow you to acclimatise properly before attempting some of the major volcanoes. As with the Climbing Excursions the idea is to depart 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.

To complement your hiking in Ecuador, we will suggest in each trip some cultural tours or other activities as extensions. We propose tours depending on which area of the Andes you are trekking in. After some of these hikes we can book you to stay the night at some nice haciendas, which are countryside farmhouses converted now into cosy mountain lodges.

Remember that we can develop a tailor made itinerary that will give you the opportunity of making the most out of your time, budget and specific interests.
