Cotopaxi, at 5897 m, is one of the highest volcanoes in Ecuador. It is situated on the Equator close to Quito in Ecuador, and is very accessible to mountaineers.

The surrounding Andes region, with its numerous volcanoes at different altitudes, gorgeous nature and exotic indigenous villages and cultures, makes the acclimatization and climb the experience of a lifetime.

We provide excellent professional guides, equipment, good accommodation, transportation, food etc. Also, we recommend that you take a look at our extensions trips–these will add to your adventure and show you some of the natural wealth and variety a small country like Ecuador has to offer.
