Ecuador and its volcanoes are a magnet for trekkers and mountaineers - Cotopaxi is the highest active volcano in the world at 5,897m and gets all the glory. With it's almost perfect cone shape and its close vicinity to the vibrant and historical city of Quito, it is a popular climb and a very exciting trek.
Cotopaxi has a glaciated summit and it requires us to use ropes, ice axes and crampons. Our local team will train us on safety on a glacier and how to use this equipment. Our challenge also gives you the perfect acclimitisation you need for a successful summit. Ecuador is packed ith activity and variety, culture and wonderful people of the smallest Andean country. If you have been to Everest Base Camp or Kilimanjaro, this challenge is a great next step.
Once you register, you will receive access to your trip App, which includes all challenge documentation you'll need to prepare you for your challenge. If you are fundraising, we will sort out all charity formalities for you, and we also offer pre-challenge training weekends in the UK where you can meet our trek leaders and test our your kit and fitness!
