Trip of a Lifetime

I have traveled a lot, seen a ton, experienced so much – but that week with Christian as our guide through Ecuador was simply unforgettable.


Looking for unique mountainbike routes on and around volcanoes? Look no further!

Amsterdam, Netherlands


Once again, Christian has managed to create an original, unique, and simply breath-taking tour, allowing you to mountainbike (and some sections, hike) near, on, and down (!) some of the most beautiful volcanoes.

I cannot say enough good things about the people, activities, or accommodations of the trip that I just finished! I am already planning to go back to Ecuador with this company to do a mountain biking trip in a few months and then to the Galapagos after that!

This was honestly probably the best trip I’ve ever been on! I can’t stress enough how caring Christian and all of the staff are. They are very attentive to individual needs, stress safety over all, and ensure that each person has an enjoyable time.
