  • Explore this amazing Avenue of the Volcanoes during your next Ecuador tours.

Quito sits in the heart of the Andes at approximately 2850mts / 9350ft surrounded by multiple volcanoes. The view on a clear day from ground level is astounding. Now imagine that view from ABOVE the volcanoes as you circle overhead in your own private helicopter.

Running for 200 miles south of Quito between two parallel cordilleras, Ecuador's "Avenue of the Volcanoes" contains seven peaks more than 17,000 feet high.

The tallest, 20,565-foot Chimborazo, was long thought to be the highest mountain in the world. (In fact, it is, when measured from the center of the earth, owing to the planet's equatorial bulge.) The term Avenue of the Volcanoes was coined by the German explorer Alex-ander von Humboldt -- "the greatest scientific traveler who ever lived," according to Charles Darwin -- who journeyed through Ecuador in 1802, climbing to 19,286 feet on Chimborazo, a world record at the time. Two of the other volcanoes, 17,160-foot Sangay and 16,480-foot Tungurahua, are generally cited as being among the 10 most active in the world.
