Trekking in the Cotopaxi National Park

Five-day Cotopaxi trek for £800pp

This 5-day trek is perfect for people without too much experience of high-altitude trekking, taking you right through the "Avenue of the Volcanoes" so you get some amazing views of Cotopaxi, Antisana and Rumiñahui before we head on past some Inca ruins towards our final destination - the twin snow-capped peaks of Illiniza Norte y Sur.

Our last night will be spent at the base of Illiniza in a lovely old hacienda, and then the next morning, depending on how the first few days have gone, we can either have a relaxing days walking in the foothills of Cotopaxi or attempt to summit Illiniza Norte - the easiest of the twin Illiniza peaks - which is a great non-technical opportunity to reach a 5000m summit.
