The 7 day acclimatization program is designed for people who are new to Ecuador and who wish to start climbing high altitude immediately. The program is developed to educate and instruct people in high altitude climbing of 4000-6000 meters.
Our mountain base PapaGayo is nestled in the avenue of the volcanoes and is a perfect location because of its altitude (3200m) and proximity to the volcanoes. With the assistance of a qualified and bilingual guide, this program acclimatizes and increases the fitness of climbers so it is possible to make a successful climb of some of the highest volcanoes in South America.
Over the 7 days you will reach the summit of 4 of Ecuador’s most famous volcanoes - Pasochoa, Corazón, Ilinizas and the last being the mighty Cotopaxi which is the highest active volcano in the world!
These climbs offer spectacular and unsurpassed views of Ecuador and the Avenue of Volcanoes. Specially designed, this program enables people with little or no experience to gain the ability and skills of climbing some of the most beautiful landscapes in the world.
