Why Andean Summits?

For many years the best choice to travel abroad was to hire an operator established in your own country, the reason?, the confidence you have in people like your own and of course it is easier to complain and probably ask your money back from companies that are under the same country laws rather than trying to get honest response from some unknown guys from a third world country. 

The truth is that some international travel agencies have enough contacts with drivers and porters to organize their own trips, but besides accomplishing the planned itinerary, foreign guides and tour leaders cannot provide a deep inside into the local culture &, history.

Bolivia has recently experienced a surge in Adventure Travel. There are dozens if not hundreds of new agencies popping up everywhere in the country. As the tourist population arises, problems grow and more unattended complaints have been reported to the “Tourism Police”. While the prices spiral down and casualties grow in numbers, we have maintained our professional level of service as we have done since 1992. In this industry you really "get what you pay for". It is not worth to gamble with your safety by settling for the lowest price. Not to mention, it won’t be as fun.

We are professionals, and we do not just operate “tours” because of the money; we do it because we love nature, the adventure and are proud of our job. We can guarantee, without any doubt, that you will not be able to find a better adventure service in the area, not only because of the good standard of our services, but also because of the experience and knowledge you will get from our local guides.

For many years we have been known for being the best mountaineering service in the region. We still are, but now we offer a wider variety of trips and in several countries of South America (Bolivia, Chile, Peru and Argentina). The early mountaineering years have shaped our spirit and defined our style. That is why safety is our main concern. As we operate in isolated areas, we do not take any risks and always play it safe. All of our staff and not only guides take part of the training on safety matters. On mountaineering trips we only work with UIAGM/IFMGA professional Mountain Guides.

As we do not like crowds, and we know most of our clients don’t either, we usually operate off the beaten path. Every year we look for new destinations and design new itineraries exploring different tracks and roads to get there. Of course we also travel to some destinations that have become well known and are worth the visit.

When traveling with us, our guides will not only lead you along the Pre-Colonial Trails, through the jungle or across the glaciers; they will take you on a trip inside the local life. You will learn about the history, the culture, the politics, and the daily life and to top it all you will have a taste of the local cuisine.
