About Latin American Alpine
Who are we?
Latin American Alpine is a licensed tour operator. We specialize in authentic adventure and cultural tours. We are based in La Republica in Quito, Ecuador. Our guides and staff have spent countless hours exploring the alpine landscape to ensure we take you on the best journeys.
Our style of adventure
Our small group tours focus on the unique scenery and rich Ecuadorian culture. We take you away from the ‘touristy’ hot spots and show you the less frequented, but beautiful alpine landscapes. Our tours have an average of 6 persons (and are limited to 8 maximum). This ensures that you have a genuine and intimate experience when touring with us.
Our mission and philosophy of adventure and cultural travel
At Latin American Alpine we believe in treating our guests as fellow travelers. Our mission is to ensure that each guest has a enjoyable and unforgettable experience when touring with us. We put our clients first and will always take the necessary precautions to ensure your safety and comfort.
