This page has a complete list of our currently scheduled Expeditions, through to early 2022 with links to the information pages for each individual trip.
CORONAVIRUS. Given the current worldwide crisis our scheduled expeditions may be subject to updates and changes. But any bookings made with us are fully refundable if we (or you) have to cancel due to any national or regional government coronavirus restrictions, either in your home country, here in Scotland, or out in the Andes. This guarantee does not include a refund if you personally become ill with Covid or have to isolate due to a close personal contact. CORONAVIRUS.
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 John Biggar 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 John Biggar 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 John Biggar/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 - "Estimated Local Costs". For more details about these costs please read the individual trip pages (click on the links below) or see our 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 in the year to come. The Estimated Local Costs are based on shared accommodation (mainly double rooms) and a group size of 3 or 4 to share travel costs, e.g. mule and/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 hotel 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.
