South Iliniza (5.263m) 2 days

Day 1: The meeting point will be in Quito very early in the morning; we will head south through the Avenue of Volcanoes along the Panamerican Highway passed Machachi, an hour later we will be arriving at the parking lot called “La Virgen” at 3,900 meters above sea level. This is where our ascending journey will begin… it normally takes about 3 hours to make it to the “New Horizons” Refugee that’s 4,750 meters high. We will enjoy a well deserved lunch and relax a bit for the rest of the afternoon until our staff calls us for dinner.

Day 2: Our day will start very early, at 3am with a substantial breakfast that will be served by our kind staff and then we will head to the base where our technical climbing will begin. The estimate climbing time from the base to the summit of this magnificent volcano is about 3 hours, once at the top, you will be given enough time to rest, enjoy the view and take memorable pictures of the scenery. Our way down should not take more than 2 hours, then back to the refugee and drive back to Quito.
