ITINERARY

DAY 1

Straight depart southbound throughout the volcanoes avenue and over the western mountain range of the Andes, on roads disclosing how people have adapted to unconceivable latitudes and topographies. 

Kick off with a short hike exploring along San Juan canyon, a place where it seems like the Earth cracked open so we can see the interior of a lava river.

Get outfitted as a proper climber and after a safety briefing; our team will set you up for a morning of challenges, laughs, and plenty of unforgettable time on the rock.

Tailored to suit your experience, from first-time beginners through to advance rock climbers, our guides will assist you to ensure your own thrill-coaster.

The focus is to inventory everyone’s ability and trust building with gear and systems, so we arrange and make sure to personalize your progress for the the upcoming challenges. 

A picnic outside to replenish energies and back to business, our ledge swing challenge, if not suitable to your skill level a sunset hike will be offered.

The wild side of the mountains and their distinctive capricious and sometimes taxing weather is so humbling that makes a bowl of salty water taste as if it was the biggest delight in the planet as long as it is hot.

Regardless, you are ensured a flavorful and gratifying dinner from the very hands of the local chefs overlooking the mountain landscapes outside and snugged in the heat of the fireplace. 

Take sometime after dinner to check the sky before snuggling in alpaca blankets in your heated rooms. 

DAY 2

Wake up to the mountain silence and look trough the window before your first sip of coffee. 

Nowadays it is a known fact that Chimborazo volcano is the furthest point from the center of the Earth due to its location along the equatorial bulge of the planet.

A true "mind over body" challenge to face, a free hanging 50 meters rappel into San Juan canyon, in panting giggles and possible shaking legs we will start hiking out of the canyon in celebratory mood.

After lunch, you will check in at Chimborazo Lodge, with the volcano itself as its backyard.
