Urus Morraine, Cordillera Blanca, Peru
Three fantastic peaks from the same wonderful campsite.
Refresh skills and ramp up the thrills as the climbs get bigger.
Climb with the best, professional, fully-qualified guides in Peru's Cordillera Blanca.
Wonderful mountaineering experience in the high Andes.
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.

The accommodation was fine - we had a very spacious tent, and Olaza's B&B was very nice to come back to after a few days camping. The food while camping was really great, the cook Manuel performed miracles! Rodolfo was a really excellent guide, he was very patient with me, he was very good company, and he organised everything extremely well.
Thanks very much to you and to Kathy for putting the holiday together for us. It was a great experience and I am certainly looking forward to going back for more!

Some people dream of sailing through caves of polished marble in a spectacular setting away from it all……. This dream can become a reality in Chile’s remote northern Patagonia where one can find the “Capilla de Marmol / Marble Chapel” which was declared by the Chilean government a Nature Sanctuary in 1994. The nature sanctuary consists of a series of rocky outcrops and islets in Lake General Carrera near the towns of Puerto Tranquilo and Puerto Sanchez. Marble caves These limestone outcrops have been eroded over the last 6,000 years. The waves have sculpted a series of caves …
