Trek and Climb the Avenues of the Volcanoes in Ecuador 2020
Another new destination added, this year we will be offering an amazing opportunity to visit the stunning avenues of volcanoes in Ecuador. Come with us and climb these beautifully glaciated mountains and explore everything that they have to offer.
Running for 200 miles south of Quito between two parallel cordilleras, Ecuador’s “Avenue of the Volcanoes” contains seven peaks more than 17,000 feet high.
With a peak elevation of (6,263 metres) (20,548 ft), Chimborazo is the highest mountain in Ecuador. As Ecuador’s highest mountain, Chimborazo is a very popular climb and can be climbed year round with the best seasons being December–January and July–August.
Antisana is a stratovolcano of the northern Andes, in Ecuador. It is the fourth highest volcano in Ecuador, at (5,704 metres) (18,714 ft), and is located 50 kilometres (31 mi) SE of the capital city of Quito.
Antisana presents one of the most challenging technical climbs in the Ecuadorian Andes.
Mojanda is a complex of two volcanoes which were active simultaneously. The volcanic vents are only 3 km apart. The other volcano, which produced at least two Plinian Eruptions of its own, is known as Fuya Fuya (4263 metres). Fuya Fuya partially collapsed around 165,000 years ago, creating a large caldera to the west.
Pichincha is an active stratovolcano in the country of Ecuador, whose capital Quito wraps around its eastern slopes. The two highest peaks of the mountain are Wawa Pichincha (4,784 metres) (15,696 ft)) and Ruku Pichincha (4,698 metres) (15,413 ft).
