Andes Website : Climbing, Skiing, Trekking and Guidebooks in South America

Scheduled Expeditions Calendar 2019-20

This page has a complete list in chronological order of all our currently scheduled Expeditions, through to early 2020 with links to the information pages for each individual trip.

You may also want to take a look at the  Expeditions & Explorations Page  which lists many expeditions in South America which ANDES have run in the past and which we can organise and/or lead again.

The expeditions listed here are based on clients paying ANDES a Leader Fee and then booking their own flights. We can help you to select appropriate flights. The fee for leadership and instruction payable to ANDES is fixed and includes all the leaders expenses. On the mountain we'll provide all tents, cooking equipment and food, plus any communal climbing kit necessary such as ropes.

Local travel and accommodation services will be organised by ANDES. However clients pay directly for all their own local costs such as permits, hotels, vehicle transport & meals. These are payable directly, at cost, with some items paid for personally and some items (e.g. 4x4 hire) shared equally by the whole group. We give an estimate of these costs below based on a group size of 3 or 4 clients. For more details about these costs please read the individual trip pages (click on the links below) or see the  Accommodation and Travel Costs  page.

Note that airfares and local costs in these tables are only estimated.  Airfares are given from the UK, where the majority of our customers are based, using best guesses for economy class airfares The Estimated Local Costs are based on shared accommodation (mainly double rooms) and a group of 3 or 4 to share mule or 4x4 costs. How much you actually pay for these items will depend on a variety of factors. For example your choice of airline & travel class, your choice of single vs. shared room.  Also, for example, vehicle rental or private transfer costs may be more or less than our estimate if there is a smaller or larger group to share the cost. Our estimates are based on a group size of 3 or 4 clients.
