We provide logistical support as:
private transport to take you to the foot of the different mountains; contact with the muleteers and porters which can be of great help at high altitude; arrange mountain equipment rental; hire the experienced cooks to prepare delicious treats in the base camp and high camps; and last but not least we know the best UIAGM certified mountain guides to make it an enjoyable and safe climb.
We thus organize both fully supported mountaineering expeditions and logistical support for independent climbers.
About the Andean mountain range:
The Andes is the longest mountain range in the world ! It spreads over 7000 km from South to North of the Latin American continent. No need to say that the opportunities for mountaineering, rock climbing and trekking are almost infinite. You will find perfect granite walls for rock climbing, active volcanoes in which crater you can look after a day long hike, cross huge glacier to reach summits over 6000 metres altitude, ascend steep ice gullies on technical mixed routes or trek at the foot of the mountains across beautiful landscapes.
Not to mention that you will only seldomly come across other visitors as the Andes are less crowded than the Alps, some (in)famous Himalayan peaks or known routes from the US rockies.
Whereas it is easy for us to organize climbs on the andean summits which names spread across the continents, like Aconcagua, Ojos del Salado, cerro Torre, Fitz roy, Cotopaxi, Chimborazo, Huascaran, Alpamayo, Huayna Potosi, Sajama and Illimani, our speciality is to set up expeditions to the less visited mountains, to offer a unique experience.
