Excursions

Our Excursions have been designed as independent activities that offer you the opportunity to create your own itinerary, giving you the advantage of combining some of this single ascents while you are exploring a certain area of the Ecuadorian Andes.

We would suggest specific combinations based mostly on the fact that to climb some mountains, you need to have a very good acclimatisation and a fair knowledge of mountaineering techniques. The climbs we suggest can be single day Trekking Excursions that are in order of ascension, so you can develop an ideal acclimatisation process.

Additionally we would suggest some cultural tours or other activities as complimentary extensions depending on the area you plan to explore.

Our speciality is the organisation of well-developed Tailor-Made itineraries, so we can design you an exclusive journey. Let us know your requirements and ideas.

Depending on the itinerary you select, we can arrange your accommodation in some traditional countryside farms (haciendas), mountain lodges, hotels or hostels.

Most of these beautiful sites have their own history, which makes of them an attraction itself.

PRICING

Prices of our excursion as a single trips are not being published on our website as independent tours. Our single excursions are often part of longer hiking and mountaineering programs where the final price depends on the number of people taking part on it, the length of the program and the services requested.
