Ecuador is an astonishingly beautiful country that has some of the highest volcanoes in the world. Our Avenue of the Volcanoes expedition tackles four of the best volcanic peaks, with a careful program of acclimatization and skills development to ensure you have the best chance of success, comfort and enjoyment combined with sufficient rest days.
