Cotopaxi (19,347 feet) – The Worlds Highest Active Volcano!  An excellent introduction to high altitude mountaineering on Ecuador’s signature peak. This Expedition will develop the mountaineering skills critical for any successful ascent: Glacier travel and crevasse rescue, high altitude physiology, and snow climbing techniques.

If you want to try mountaineering on a smaller scale check out our Ice and Peak course.

With more than 100 expeditions to Ecuador since 1992, this is the cornerstone of our Mountaineering Program.  Inquire Online
