Ecuador Volcanoes Expedition
January 6th - 21st 2018
This is a once in a lifetime chance to summit 5 and climb on 6 volcanoes in the Andes Mountains of Ecuador, finishing on the highest mountain in the world, Chimborazo (6,310m). Although not the highest in altitude above sea level, this is the highest point on earth from the earth's centre and the closest point on Planet Earth to the Sun. This will be an amazing adventure to climb the 20th, 16th, 8th, 3rd and 1st highest peaks in Ecuador. The scenery is truly breathtaking and the experience wonderful. You will make the famous Hacienda El Porvenir your base on the borders of the Cotopaxi National Park as you climb each of these spectacular volcanoes.
