Andeanface offers Climbing and Trekking Expeditions in Ecuador, including climbing Cotopaxi and Chimborazo. All mountain expeditions are all inclusive itineraries that range from four to thirteen days. They have been designed to make the most out of your travelling time and budget, while offering unique accommodation options like the traditional Ecuadorian haciendas or comfortable lodges, well planned and varied activities, and a cultural touch by interacting with the people of the areas that we visit.

We have invested several years researching the best possible itineraries, taking special care in the selection of our providers and developing a personal relationship with them to create solid alliances.

All of these efforts translate into more reliable services and higher quality standards. We constantly strive to improve what we offer and develop new exclusive adventures.
