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 rainforests and 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 rainforests and up and over volcanoes. Overall, however, our ultimate destination is the majestic Cayambe.

The best experience I have had! Tougher than Kilimanjaro, but more rewarding as well. The different experiences of the climbs undertaken will test your mental strength as well as your physical, but once you're on top, there's no other feeling like it.

The challenge was extreme and needed a lot of mental as well as physical effort. To reach the summits of all four volcanoes was incredible with each one being more emotional than the last.

This was the toughest thing I have ever done, both physically and mentally. I have done Everest Base Camp, Half Marathon's, 10 mile runs and 10Ks but this is way above those in terms of the extent to which you will test yourself. You forget the pain when you see the top though. Well worth it!
