FAMITLY & EXECUTIVES HIKE 7D
Recognizing the requirements of families with children and the extra comforts desired by some executives we have designed a range of excursions that will get adventurous out into the thick of things, but provide comfortable accommodation and excellent cuisine as a relaxing finish to a day's trekking. The following is a 7-day program that encompasses Ecuador's Avenue of the Volcanoes, from north to south; we can adjust the length according to the group's preferences. You will hike on the rugged high lands going through green humid forests, counting on a 4x4 jeep, guide and support staff for your every need. You will spend your nights in comfortable hostels, lodges or huts depending on the location.
