• Fully qualified, professional, local and bilingual mountain guides who have summited many times, with a ratio of one guide to every 3 to 4 clients.

  • Plenty of acclimatisation built in to give you the best chance to summit.

  • Two buffer days in case of poor weather on summit day.

  • Climb to the top of South America's highest peak, a fantastic achievement and great challenge.

  • Great food, equipment and briefings - ideal preparation for your summit push.

  • Hire extra porters to help lighten your loads.

The guides were quite simply outstanding. They really made the trip a wonderful experience. I felt they were absolutely part of the team and there was no ‘client/guide’ barrier whatsoever.

Professional and diligent throughout, and always good humoured and practical.
