Scheduled Expeditions Calendar 2018-19
This page has a complete list in chronological order of all our currently scheduled Expeditions, through to the second half of 2019 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 the Andes 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 guiding/instructional 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 the leaders expenses. On the mountain we'll provide all tents and cooking equipment, plus all communal climbing kit such as ropes.
Although local services will be organised by ANDES, clients pay all 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. 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. 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.
