On our recent trip to Ecuador we were looking for some exciting trekking experience and some research brought up Julio Verne Travel Popkje was very responsive from the start and caring well for our personal preferences. We ended up booking the Volcano Circuit around Carihueirazo and Chimborazo. As for the trek itself it was excellently organized, with a driver - Moises - collecting us from the hotel and bringing us to the trailhead were the started trekking with our guide Leonardo. As a guide he was great, very attentive to our needs and keeping an excellent pace for us (and Popkje, who joined us on the first day). When reaching the camp sites, everything already set prepared for us to relax at the end of the day respectively - on the last day we slept at a refuge run by the local community though. As for the difficulty of the trek, a more relaxed day was typically followed by a tougher day (fitness-wise; technical difficulty, which was rather easy for experienced hikers), which made the tour quite well balanced in our opinion - and the hard part on day 2 could have been skipped, if we wouldn't have been up to it. Landscapes were stunning, it lead us through beautiful Paramó landscapes, provided excellent views of Carihueirazo and Chimborazo (if clouds permitted) and overall was a unique experience we would for sure recommend to everybody well acclimatized to height.

We never got to the high camp due to the high winds, so it never happened. Very disappointing. There was hardly any use of the equipment and we never got all the meals that I was promised. The his left a bitter taste in my mouth.

Hi Miguel, we understand your disappointment about the stormy conditions on Chimborazo. Unfortunately the weather in the Ecuadorian Andes is extremely variable and unpredictable. In case of extreme conditions, safety comes first! This is why our Climbing Rules and Conditions establish that the mountain guide will take the decision to go down, if weather or snow conditions make it too dangerous to continue. You did not have dinner in the high camp, but instead we provided dinner in the Carrel refuge. We offered the option to spend the night in the refuge and hike to the Whymper Needles the next morning, explaining that in this case the costs of the refuge had to be covered. As you decided not to stay, we agreed with you that we will apply a discount for a future summit attempt. We hope to see you back!
