This is a mountaineering expedition to Ecuador, with the aim of climbing four volcanoes in the Ecuador.
The highest is Chimborazo (6,310). We also climb the stunning crater of Cotopaxi (5,897m) and Cayambe (5,790m). As part of the acclimatisation we trek to Iliniza Norte still 5,126m.
This is a great introduction to altitude mountaineering as it has 4 high peaks split by rest periods at hotels.
Chimborazo is the highest mountain in Ecuador and technically the highest point from the centre of the earth (due to the Equatorial 'bulge') whilst Cotopaxi is one of the world’s highest active volcanoes.
It is longer than the Kilimanjaro trip but exposes you to techniques such as crampons, ice axes, moving together in a team on a rope etc.
Plus you experience 4 high altitude peaks in South America.
