Ecuador Mountain Guides

Ecuador Mountain Guides is made up of a group of guides with many years of climbing and mountain guiding experience throughout the world. Our knowledge of the country and the experience earned over the years allows us to organize and guide throughout all of Ecuador, as well as outside of Ecuador in countries such as Peru, Bolivia, Chile, and Argentina.

Ecuador Mountain Guides is a legally recognized and registered company in the ministry of tourism with all working permits and licenses granted as required by the organizations of regulation and control in Ecuador.

We organize tours in the 4 regions of Ecuador: the Coast, the Galapagos, the Amazon, and the Highlands where our snow and ice covered volcanos are located. Because of the diverse geography of the country, we are able to organize tours that include cycling, trekking, jungle hikes, paragliding, white water rafting, canyoning, horseback riding, community tourism, Indigenous markets, volunteer, and climbing the highest active volcanoes on the planet.
