Natural wonders abound within the small country of Ecuador.  Between the remarkable Galapagos Islands and wilderness of the Amazon rainforest, exists the high Andean plateau.  The avenue of volcanoes, hosting numerous mountains above 15,000 feet is a backbone of the region, geographically and culturally.  The high, glacier strewn volcanoes, offer a perfect setting for scouts to learn high altitude mountaineering skills.

Imagine cresting a crevassed ridge to witness the beginning of the equatorial sunrise, bartering in Spanish for local produce, or rafting through the Amazonian rainforest.  Picture yourself attempting mountain summits over 17,000 feet, trekking through an alpine grasslands, or mountain biking amongst exotic Amazonian birds amidst the rich Ecuadorian culture of the high Andes.
