I had such a wonderful time in Ecuador, definitely an experience I will never forget. I'm really glad I included Pasachoa at the start to help with acclimatisation.
It was so beautiful as well. All the info, help and assistance I received prior to booking and the actual booking of the trip was so easy it was awesome (thanks Kat).

I had such a wonderful time in Ecuador, definitely an experience I will never forget. Im really glad I included Pasachoa at the start to help with acclimatization.. it was so beautiful as well. All the info, help and assistance I received prior to booking and the actual booking of the trip was so easy it was awesome (thanks Kat). The itself trip was so well organised, the accommodation and the food was excellent. The knowledge, experience and kindness of the guides was exceptional. Ojjo and hokien the guides I had are amazing human beings, they are so good at what they do and made me feel safe at all times even when I was scared to death. The highlight of my trip is hard to pick, it would have to be illinaza cause the refuge and the climb to the summit was the most beautiful scenery I have ever seen.

Larry and Gillian are coming to the end of their month of travelling with Andean Trails in Patagonia. We put together a tour designed to take them off-the-beaten-track – read the first instalment in their blog – covering Santiago and Aysen and remote border crossings. Once in Argentina, Gillian and Larry trekked to the base of Fitzroy and Cerro Torre, and took a day tour to Perito Moreno. They then set off for Torres del Paine on a self-guided trek. Their tour has ended with a few days in Ushuaia and a flight out from Buenos Aires. Check their progress below …
