Our Peru climbing and mountaineering courses and guided mountain climbing tours bring you the best of the Peruvian mountains.
The Andes that form these giant, ice-clad Peruvian peaks are a climber’s adventure playground.
Climbing in Peru is open to all – learn the basics on our courses, or experienced technical mountaineers can climb some of the most beautiful snow-capped peaks in the world.
Mountaineering courses are from 3 to 6 days, private or small group. Courses are held in the Cordillera Blanca in Ancash, a short flight from Lima. We provide English-speaking, UIAGM / IFMGA qualified local mountain guides who will instruct our courses and then help you climb to the summit.
We organise guided ascents of the easier trekking peaks such as Huapi, Maparaju, Pisco, Ishinca and Vallunaraju, to more technical ascents such as Chopicalqui, Tocllaraju, Huascaran.
You climb and we organise the logistics. Our mountaineering trips are fully supported with qualified guides, assistants, porters, cooks, donkeys and back up teams. All communal kit is provided for you, tents, mats and so on. We have top quality boots, crampons, harnesses, ice-axes and other mountaineering equipment to rent too if you don’t want to bring your own or don’t have it.
Peru’s mighty array of glaciated mountain ranges await the adventure traveller looking for a unique and challenging climbing or mountaineering holiday.
It was a really wonderful trip, we both enjoyed it tremendously, the highlights were getting to the top of 2 mountains.
I found both ascents quite demanding, but it was exhilarating to reach the top and be rewarded with tremendous views.

I would rate the Guide as 10/10, or maybe a 9/10- really excellent.
The cook was great also, as were the donkey drivers. Thanks for setting us up with such great people. The food was very good, 9/10. Maybe a few more potatoes than we bargained for.
The highlights were probably the summits, although the rest days after the summits were very nice.

How do I successfully achieve high altitude acclimatisation? This is the question that anyone travelling to the high altitude Andean areas of Peru, Ecuador, Bolivia, Chile, Argentina or Colombia should be asking themselves. Successful acclimatisation will make a huge difference to your visit. It will mean you have a much safer and more enjoyable experience, whether trekking or climbing high Andean peaks. Over the past 25 years I have been up many 5,000 m plus peaks and trekked many fabulous routes in the Andes. I have suffered altitude headaches, lethargy, loss of appetite and certainly lack of breath when trying …
