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

Past Expeditions & Explorations

This page lists expeditions ANDES have run in previous years. Most of them are not currently scheduled. For a full list of our currently scheduled trips see our Expedition Calendar

ANDES can set up and guide any of the treks and expeditions featured here at a reasonable cost for a private group of two or more persons - just let us know your requirements.

For Courses and Expeditions which aren't currently scheduled we give an estimated Guiding Fee based on a group size of four. The actual fee charged will depend on the size of the group, the time of year, etc., and may be considerably lower than quoted here for a large group.

Our Estimated Logistics Costs give you an idea of the in-country costs per person for a typical group of three or four people. These include, transport, hotels and trekking costs such as mules or porters. These  Estimated costs could be quite a bit more or less if your group is either smaller or larger than four. Many items such as vehicle rental and trekking costs are obviously much cheaper when shared by a larger group. If you're looking for logistics services for an expedition like one of these please Contact us with your requirements and we'll get a specific quote put together for you.
