The ice climbing in Bolivia was one of the craziest thing we've ever done, we're still looking back at it and can't believe we did it.
Osvaldo was excellent, very friendly and safety conscious. The equipment was great and so was the cook Maria!
I found the last day of the climb very very hard, but absolutely delighted I did.

Thanks to Osvaldo, Sergio and Maria we got to the top of Huayna Potosi safely and felt that our needs were the highest priority at all times. It was clear that this is not the case with other guides. Some were rude to their guests in front of us.
Highlight - Summiting Huyana as the sun broke across the Cordillera Real. Casting a triangular shadow to the west stretching out to Lake Titicaca. The descent was also magical, seeing the terrain we'd hiked in the dark in all is spectacular icy glory. In particular stopping to peer deep into a 40m deep crevasse.

The overall organisation was brilliant. I would say the best guides for me were in La Paz and the local guide in Uyuni. Also Oswaldo our trek guide and the whole organisation there were brilliant. The accommodation was fine – a little cold in Uyuni, but not much can be done about that! The food was very good all along and I had no troubles there at all.

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 …
