Ecuador Climbing and Hiking Trips

It’s highly recommended (and may be a legal requirement) to contract a professional certified guide when attempting to climb many of Ecuador highest peaks. It’s quite possible for experienced hikers to do many shorter hikes and even multi-day treks without a professional guide using books and topographical maps, but for the added security, peace of mind and convenience, it’s generally recommended to hire a mountain guide before venturing into remote wilderness.

Here’s a list of reputable, recommended climbing and hiking trip operators in Ecuador:
