We had the trip of a lifetime. I hear that expression all the time but never really thought it real to say until now. It was fantastic!
Highlight of the holiday was the view of the Three peaks and the lake in perfect weather conditions. It was also the ice hiking which was totally thrilling and lots of fun.
Our guide, Danny, was simply awesome. Great sense of humor, very knowledgeable, good company, calm. We felt lucky to have him with us.
The Refugios and the one night in the tent were very clean and the beds comfortable. The tents were great and sleeping bags and mats were provided - despite no-one being able to sleep due to the noise of the wind (crazy!) Some Refugios were better than others but all were very comfortable with enough amenities
Food was adequate/fine. Don’t think I’ll be having mashed potatoes any time soon but absolutely nothing to complain about. The first Refugio we stayed in was the best (sorry, name eludes me)
The route was good and everything went to plan (bar the boat which no-one could have foreseen) Only emergency internet at that specific Refugio though so possibly a good idea not to try and leave from here as plans difficult to change.
Not sure about the local community benefitting but certainly in P Natales I felt we helped by shopping, eating and drinking there! Surely just having visitors in the area helps the economy and educates people how to behave in a Natural Park?
We chose this place as we wanted to see if it was as beautiful as we had been told. And YES it was!
We chose Andean Trails as the itinerary could be flexible to our time schedule and the amount of time we wanted to spend walking. (Which was great)
Overall an absolutely fantastic trip which will be very difficult to top so if you have any other ideas for next year, please let us know!

I’m pleased to say that all the arrangements went to plan and the Eco Camp was excellent. Much better than an hotel. More comfort than I had expected and the food was excellent.
I was in a group of 11 and we had an excellent group dynamic even with an age range from 72 to 33. 3 Brits, 4 USA, 2 Canadians, 1 Honk Kong and 1 France.
We had 2 guides who were excellent.
Well worth the long journey and I can thoroughly recommend the holiday.

Ecuador’s Cloudforest is a magnet for those in search of wildlife, bird watching and the elusive Spectacled Bear. Sustainable eco-lodges in the cloud forest are a fantastic base to explore the flora and fauna and are so easily reached from Quito, being only a 2 hour car journey away. Here’s Andean Trails’ low down on the best cloud forest lodges… El Monte El Monte Eco Lodge is a truly inspiring set up, run by a highly enthusiastic couple. They may have been running the lodge for over 27 years, but will still treat you as if you are first …
