Challenge Yourself

Trek Itinerary

The Avenue of the Volcanoes Trek is a busy challenge, climbing to multiple Volcano summits over the course of the trek.  When you arrive in Ecuador you will already be at 2,800m and will be going straight to 4,200m on the first day of the trek itself. Therefore, the itinerary has been specifically designed to aid your acclimatisation to the altitude as well as incorporating a rest day on Shabbat.
