The Andean Condor’s Trek & Cotopaxi

Cotopaxi, at 5897 m, is the second highest volcano in Ecuador. It is situated south of the Equator line and 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.

On this 10-day itinerary we offer you an excellent acclimatization program, including one of the best treks in Ecuador: The Condor’s Trek, an absolutely beautiful, authentic and remote area which is rarely visited by other tourists or mountaineers. We provide excellent professional guides, equipment, good accommodation, transportation, food, etc. Also, we recommend that you take a look at our extension 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.
