Walking the Volcanoes of Ecuador Overview

Experience the very best of Andean Ecuador on this volcano walking holiday

This volcano walking adventure showcases the greats of Andean Ecuador; its breath-taking nature and colourful culture, as we explore the ‘Avenue of the Volcanoes’ on foot. During the course of our two week holiday, we will aim to summit three volcanoes: the viewpoint peak of Fuya Fuya (4263m), Imbabura (4575m) and the central summit of Ruminahui (4650m). We’ll also visit the high refuges on three of Ecuador’s volcanic giants: Cotopaxi, Illiniza and Chimborazo. Cotopaxi (5897m), recognisable due to its iconic conical shape, is the highest active volcano in the world and the summit of Chimborazo (6268m), due to the equatorial bulge, has the distinction of being the furthest point from the centre of the Earth! We’ll also discover the region’s beautiful lakes and lagoons and explore the Andean paramo, with its unique fauna, wild horses and grazing vicunas. We end with a ride on the world-famous 'Devil's Nose' train, a free day in the spa town of Banos and sightseeing in colonial Quito. Expect charming accommodation throughout, including incredibly located lodges with outrageous volcanic views, traditional family run guesthouses and well-located hotels. This is a classic volcano walking holiday and a superb introduction to one of the most awe-inspiring environments on Earth.From 2020 we have reduced the amount of meals included in this holiday to offer a greater choice of dining options.
