CLIMB ECUADOR is a family-run mountaineering/hiking/
trekking/travel company formed in 1999. We first ran trips to Ecuador, organizing 16-day trips with climbs of Rucu Pichincha, Iliniza Norte, Cotopaxi and Chimborazo. Later, we expanded into Bolivia, Peru, Argentina (Aconcagua) and Mexico. Then came our Central America Trilogy – trips to Guatemala (2016), Nicaragua (2017) and Costa Rica (2018). Some 40 trips and 20 years later (yes, 2019 marks our 20th Anniversary!!) we are still going strong in our quest to offer people the “best vacation of their lives!!”
Our next trip, scheduled for May 24–June 9, 2019, is a 17-day, hiking intensive trip to SPAIN, home to picturesque mountain ranges, beautiful churches, medieval castles, enormous artistic heritage, Mediterranean beaches, superb wine, flamenco, paella, Picasso, Cervantes, Dali, tapas, bullfights, friendly people, and more! The itinerary includes 6 separate climbs, 11 days of hiking total, including climbs of the four highest mountains in continental Spain. All summit bids start from comfortable high mountain huts, complete with beds, restaurants and outdoor patios so if you feel fatigued one morning and want to skip a climb to relax and soak up the mountain air over a cup of tea, no problem. As always, this is YOUR trip — you go at your own pace.
When not hiking, we will visit famous cultural sites as we travel. Trip dates of May 24 to June 9, 2019, are designed to avoid the summer heat, and to avoid excessive snow in the mountains.

Our trips can best be described as “fun and flexible.” Our focus is on hiking and climbing, but we always schedule city tours and side activities between climbs. Our trips can be strenuous, but we do nothing that the average “weekend warrior” who is in good physical condition can’t handle. Ages for our clients range from 18 to 73, but most clients are over 50. We guarantee single occupancy at all hotels and enough guides on each hike so you can walk at your own pace and not feel “pushed” by faster group members.
Our goal is simple: to provide you with THE BEST HIKING AND TRAVEL ADVENTURE YOU WILL EVER HAVE. Take a moment to explore our website and see if CE is for you.
