The challenge

  • Walk through the clouds as you conquer Cayambe
  • Summit as the sun rises over Ecuador
  • Gaze for miles over the magical Andes
  • Meander through the landscape up and around volcanoes
  • Celebrate your achievements in the cultural capital Quito

This beautiful trek is not for the faint-hearted as it culminates in a magical midnight glacier climb. You will feel exhausted but elated as you rise with the sun, rewarded with priceless views over the Andes once you conquer Cayambe. The trek is at very high altitude, which means acclimatisation is vital. The trip will begin in Ecuador’s capital Quito, giving the group time to feel comfortable with their surroundings before venturing off on the challenge of a lifetime. This action-packed itinerary meanders through the countryside and up volcanoes. Overall, however, your ultimate destination is the majestic Cayambe.
