Climbers will love mountaineering among the peaks of South America – the Andes are a mountaineer’s dream.
Our professional experienced, UIAGM-qualified local guides will help guide you to the peaks and summits of these impressive ranges, be you a beginner, needing a refresher or an experienced climber.
If you like it high, there are plenty 6,000m/19,685ft+ summits some of which can be hiked, others that are technical ice-climbs and a whole range of peaks in between.
Learn to climb on a mountaineering course or choose a guided mountaineering trip, and if you prefer a less technical experience choose a trekking peak.
Peru, Ecuador, Bolivia, Chile and Argentina all have great mountain ranges.
Each range has specific seasons for climbing, and some are year-round, so you can enjoy a climbing holiday somewhere in South America at any time.
One of our most popular trips is our six day climbing course in the heart of the Cordillera Blanca in Peru, which includes one ascent to get you into the sport.
We also organise courses in Bolivia and Ecuador in preparation for ascents of the Andean peaks there, and of course there is always South America’s highest peak, the mighty Aconcagua.
For the more experienced climber there is Chimborazo in Ecuador, Chopicalqui and Tocllaraju in Peru or Sajama and Illimani in Bolivia, to name a few options.

Larry and Gillian are coming to the end of their month of travelling with Andean Trails in Patagonia. We put together a tour designed to take them off-the-beaten-track – read the first instalment in their blog – covering Santiago and Aysen and remote border crossings. Once in Argentina, Gillian and Larry trekked to the base of Fitzroy and Cerro Torre, and took a day tour to Perito Moreno. They then set off for Torres del Paine on a self-guided trek. Their tour has ended with a few days in Ushuaia and a flight out from Buenos Aires. Check their progress below …
