welcome to andean summit adventure, specialists when it comes to mountaineering in Ecuador and beyond. our certified guides and international team is your best choice for making your trip a liftetime experience! let's go for some climbs - cheers!


The trip we booked included acclimatization and climbing of some of Ecuador's most beautiful mountains. Although my girlfriend did not feel a hundred per cent well, I think that we really enjoyed it. Guiding was very good and the program worked out perfectly fine. It was always possible to do adaptions and get in contact with guides and Elisabeth. We have a few mountains left and will for sure return :).
Thanks for everything! Great summit, perfect guide! The best :)
The trip was great. Excellent organization, excellent Guids. We enjoyed it very much!
Jaime and Elisabeth made an excellent team coordinating and guiding my climbs up to Pasachoa, Iliniza Norte, Cotopaxi, and Chimborazo. Thanks to Jaime's guidance and climbing pace, I was able to summit all four peaks without feeling winded or succumb to altitude. Elisabeth goes the extra mile, promptly answering all questions and consistently stays in touch to make sure clients are safe and satisfied with their services. There are many qualified guides in Ecuador, but Andean Summit Adventures is without a doubt the best option to take when climbing in the Andes. After searching the internet and reading reviews, I'm pretty sure you'll come to the same conclusion. The mountains themselves were stunningly beautiful and easily worth the trip from Oregon to Ecuador, but proper acclimatization, especially for Cotopaxi and Chimborazo, is a must. Out of three rope teams, my guide and I were the only ones to summit Chimborazo, and I suspect the reason was due to inadequate acclimatization.

Liebe Elisabeth, lieber Jaime, Vielen Dank für eure großartige Organisation unserer Bergerlebnisse mit euch. Die Planung der Gipfeltouren mit dem Cotopaxi als Höhepunkt war ideal abgestimmt. Die langsame Höhenanpassung machte sich bezahlt, die Berge konnten mit Spaß und Freude ohne Probleme bestiegen werden. Jaime lebt die Berge, er hat ein ausgezeichnetes Gespür für seine Kunden, reguliert das Tempo nach Bedarf und strahlt Sicherheit am Berg aus. Die wertvollen Tips von Elisabeth zu Unterkünften, Transporten, Ausflügen und Akklimatisierungstouren waren für uns sehr viel wert. Macht weiter so ihr beiden. Liebe Grüße aus Tirol Karin und Klaus
