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

Expeditions & Courses Calendar 2014-2015

This page has a complete list in chronological order of all my currently scheduled Instructional Courses and Guided Expeditions, through to mid-2015, 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, particularly in the Andes, which I have run in the past and which I can organise and/or  lead again.

The courses and expeditions  listed here are based on clients paying ANDES a guiding/instructional fee and then organising their own flights. We can  help with selecting appropriate flights. The fee for leadership and instruction payable to ANDES is fixed and includes the leaders or instructors expenses. On the mountain we'll provide all tents and cooking equipment, plus all communal climbing kit such as ropes.

Although services will be organised by ANDES, clients pay their own local costs such as permits, hotels, transport & meals. These are payable directly, at cost, with some items paid for personally and some items (e.g. 4x4 hire) shared equally between clients and leader. I 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 (accommodation and travel) in these tables are only estimated.  These estimates are based on economy class airfares and shared accommodation (mainly double rooms). 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.
