Hiking at the equator in snow: Only possible in Ecuador

If your first thought about the weather in our country was the typical scenery of a hot and humid jungle, due to the location of the equator line, then you were only partially right. Ecuador is incredibly varied, it has mountains, snow capped volcanoes, tropical rainforests at the east and west of the Andes mountain ranges, and of course, beautiful beaches by the Pacific Ocean. Not to be forgotten are the Galapagos Islands, our own South American highlight.

If you want to set a precise day during any month of the year to have a day like the one shown in the picture above, with beautiful weather as background for a fully snow-capped volcano, it is impossible to plan or expect it. This view can be seen in the middle of the day, any time during the year, when watching the Cotopaxi and Cayambe volcanoes, even the majestic Chimborazo, the highest mountain in Ecuador. Because of its location on the equator, our country does not have the four set seasons, like in the northern and southern hemispheres.

We will be happy to organize a great adventure or holiday for you. Visit us at:, specialized in-land tour operator from Ecuador.
