Avenue of the Volcanoes Trek

All year round, Mountain Treking

Avenue of the Volcanoes Trek

Trek at high altitude in the Ecuadorian Andes and climb Cotopaxi, the world's highest active volcano

Arriving in the multi-ethnic city of Quito you will kick off this fantastic challenge with a visit to the equator line before heading for the nearby volcanoes to start your trek.

Your challenge in the spectacular Avenue of Volcanoes begins with Pasochoa and El Corazon volcanoes, followed by Iliniza and culminates on one of the world's highest active volcanoes, the magical Mt. Cotopaxi.

The climb to Mt. Cotopaxi's (5,897m) summit is optional to those of the group who are exceptionally fit and prepared for the tough summit bid. Much of the final climb is on its glacier.

You will start your climb at about midnight when the ice is hard and easier to trek on. As the sun starts to rise you will see that the clouds that for days have been so far up, are now down below you. Through gaps in the cloud, there are spectacular views of the Andes in every direction.

By becoming part of our team you will be helping to bring a world free from meningitis and septicaemia a step closer.

Meningitis and septicaemia are devastating diseases which can kill or disable in hours. Although anyone of any age can get the diseases, babies, children and young adults are most at risk.

Your contribution will enable us to fund research into the prevention, detection and treatment of meningitis and septicaemia, provide life-saving awareness information and support people who have lost a loved one or are coping with after effects, like Melinda and Amelia.
