Hiking in Ecuador
We are a group of adventure lovers who are environmentally conscious and want to share with you the opportunity to hike and enjoy breathtaking scenarios, culture, wonderful places and the opportunity to contribute to keep the planet clean. Our main purpose is to enjoy nature, share the history and culture of our people and take care of it. We do our part by keeping trails clean, working with local communities and donating to plant trees to help purify the air. We designed our hiking tours not just to provide fun and entertainment but also to help conserve one of our most delicate and beautiful ecosystems by promoting positive interaction between tourists, the communities and their stunning surroundings. Our purpose is "to protect, to care and to have fun".
Our combined programs climbing and trekking go from 1 day to 2 weeks starting with acclimatization to climb the most important volcanoes in the Andean Region.
By participating on our trekking tours, you will immerse in all the wonderful scenery that Ecuador offers, while helping the community people benefit from your visit by staying in their hostels and eating in their restaurants. This helps provide income and encourages communities to preserve their beautiful scenery in order to attract more tourists; a good example of sustainable development.
With Ecuador having 4 incredible zones; the mountains, the jungle, the Galapagos and the coast, plus all the wonderful cloud forest you will find in the transitional areas, there are simply thousands of kilometers of great treks and we will ensure that you experience the best of them.
Trek the Andean mountain paths and their wild moorland; trek through humid cloud forest and its verdant vegetation; trek through the Amazon basin and under its numerous waterfalls; trek to the coast and into its dry forests, the adventures are there, just awaiting your arrival...
Our trekking programs are designed as getaways into nature or as part of an acclimatization program with a view to climbing some of the Andean peaks. We divided our trekking tours in four (4) levels according to length and terrain. Easy, Medium, Advanced and Experts
