Support MSIF and take part in the Volcano Trek, a hike through some of the most break taking and unique landscapes in the world!  

The Avenue of the Volcanoes, named in the early 1800s by famous explorer Humboldt, is a volcano-lined corridor stretching south through Ecuador. Many of these towering snow-capped cones are still active.

Between the volcanoes lies the dramatic Toachi canyon, flanked by verdant valleys of tropical forest and farmland dotted with indigenous villages; our trek explores this diverse landscape, criss-crossing the steep-sided canyon on ancient trading paths rising over 3000m. Our goal is the rim of Quilotoa (3870m), a vast volcanic crater known for its vivid turquoise lagoon.

With time to acclimatise to the altitude, this is a challenging trek through breathtakingly beautiful landscapes full of colourful Andean culture. Time to explore Quito’s colonial old town and well-earned relaxation in hot springs book-end an unforgettable experience
