​​​​​​​​​​ECUADOR VOLCANOES EXPEDITION (Duration: 16 days, Elevation:  6310 m/20,703ft, Difficulty: Low Technical)

Qualified guides introduce you to international-standard climbing techniques and you climb three splendid volcanic peaks including Ecuador’s highest, Mount Chimborazo. We begin by climbing the trekking peaks Pasochoa and Pichincha near Quito. Then we ascend Cayambe where we practice climbing skills before moving onto Antisana.  

Chimborazo is the third summit that we climb on both névé and hard glacial ice. When travelling between our mountain destinations we stay in restored haciendas, some dating back to the early 1800s, which are now world-class resort hotels. On rest days we visit the majestic and wild ecological zone of the ‘cloud forest’ and revel in the region’s amazing biological diversity.



​KILIMANJARO EXPEDITION (Duration: 13 days, Elevation: 5,895m/19,340ft, Difficulty: Low Technical)

​Climb and safari in Africa.  Climbers have long been attracted to the highest point in Africa (and highest freestanding mountain in the world) - Uhuru Peak on Kilimanjaro - which is perhaps one of the best known mountains of the world.

Kilimanjaro is like an island, standing tall and sentinel surrounded by the hot, dry plains of Africa. It amazes all with its widely contrasting vegetation; from tropical rainforest to high arid moorlands, watched over by towering cliffs and glaciers.  It is the easiest of the Seven Summits and definitely the most romantic!  Top notch Kilimanjaro guides, accommodations and services.



NORTH POLE ALL THE WAY EXPEDITION (Duration: 59 days, Elevation: Polar Icecap, Difficulty: Low Technical)

The North Pole is the ‘test piece’ of polar expeditions and a serious undertaking. Surrounded by sea ice and in total darkness for half the year, the North Pole is attainable only during a short ‘window’ of time. If too early, darkness and extremely cold temperatures prevail. If too late, the frozen Arctic Ocean melts into drifting pack ice enshrouded by water. 

Expedition will travel and live on the polar pack ice. Each day will be an adventure as we navigate over pressure ridges, search for routes around open leads of water, and set camp on multi-year pans of ice.  Achieve the true spirit of adventure on this journey.



CARSTENSZ PYRAMID EXPEDITION (Duration: 11 & 15 days, Elevation: 4,884m/16,024ft, Difficulty: Moderate Technical)

​Possibly the most exotic mountaineering location on earth, Carstensz Pyramid in Western Papua is a large limestone escarpment jutting out the rainforest. Coveted as the highest peak in Australasia, Carstensz Pyramid is the most remote of the Seven Summits.

This expedition has the attributes of a classic rock climb combined with a rare cultural experience. It is a journey of discovery and achievement and most likely your best chance of experiencing and standing on the summit of this exotic part of the world.



OJOS DEL SALADO EXPEDITION (Duration: 15 days, Elevation: 6,890m/22,605ft, Difficulty: Low Technical)

Situated on the Argentina-Chile border, Nevado Ojos del Salado ("water source of the salty river") is the highest volcano in the world. It is also the second highest mountain outside the Himalaya, second to Aconcagua (6,962m) which lies 630km to the south in Argentina.  Its name comes from the enormous deposits of salt which appear in its snowfields in the form of lagoons or “eyes”.

Reach the summit of the highest volcano on the planet.  Relax in thermal baths at the foot of the Laguna Verde and visit the indomitable corners of the Atacama Desert and the world's highest lake.


NORTH POLE SKI THE LAST DEGREE EXPEDITION (Duration: ​15-19 days, Elevation: Polar Icecap, Difficulty: Low Technical)

Enjoy a high intensity challenge but relatively short duration journey by skiing the Last Degree to the North Pole via a standard or premium expedition and amazing experience.

The challenge of the journey comes from ever-changing sea ice that moves constantly, making for interesting navigation and physical travel. Immerse yourself in extreme wilderness, learn polar travel skills and travel over the sea ice to the top of the world.



EVEREST EXPEDITION (Duration: 63 days, Elevation: 8,850m/29,035ft, Difficulty: High Technical & Excellent Fitness)

Mount Everest is still the ultimate mountaineering adventure.  To stand at the pinnacle of the earth is one of life's most rewarding experiences.  Achieving summit success requires premium resources, support and guiding services no other operator will offer.

An attempt on Everest is a committing undertaking which requires a huge amount of dedication and determination. If you are serious about achieving the top and feel you have the right experience, we invite you to apply for a position on our team in 2017.



EVEREST/LHOTSE COMBINATION EXPEDITION (Duration: 56 days, Elevation: 8,516m/27,940ft, Difficulty: High/Excellent)

From Base Camp we ascend the famous Khumbu Icefall and continue to Camp Two, surrounded by the towering flanks of Nuptse, Lhotse and Everest’s South West Face.  The route steepens as we climb the icy Lhotse face to Camp Three then on through the Yellow Band to Camp Four at the base of the summit gully.


600m/2,000ft of climbing up the icy gully follows, making this a challenging ascent. You have the option of joining the expedition specifically to climb Lhotse, or as a combo climb, making the ascent directly after your Everest summit from South Col. 


DHAULAGIRI EXPEDITION (Duration: 44 days, Elevation: 8,167m/26,795ft, Difficulty: High Technical/Excellent Fitness)

Dhaulagiri is one of the coveted 8000 metre peaks, standing as the seventh highest mountain in the world. In Sanskrit, Dhaulagiri translates into Dhavali giri, meaning “White Mountain.” Dhaulagiri is the highest mountain that lies entirely within Nepal.



GREENLAND CROSSING SKI EXPEDITION (Duration: 36 days, Elevation: 2,500m/8,200ft, Difficulty: Low Technical)

To ski unsupported across Greenland is an adventure of the highest degree. First completed by the celebrated Arctic adventurer Fritjof Nansen in 1888, this expedition is still a major achievement, albeit with the luxury of modern equipment.  


We traverse this 539km/335mile trek over 30 days and build the entire trip into a 36 day expedition.  This expedition demands strong team cohesion and commitment. It is a spectacular and rewarding journey, and ideal training for Antarctic and Arctic travel.



MERA PEAK EXPEDITION (Duration: 24 days, Elevation: 6,476m/21,246ft, Difficulty: Moderate Technical/High Fitness)

​Mera Peak is one of the most alluring trekking peaks in Nepal as it involves a culturally stimulating journey through remote picturesque villages and forests - followed by a gentle climb to the summit.  It is best known as Nepal’s highest trekking peak.

The climb of Mera comes at the end of week-long trekking and acclimatization to give you an enjoyable yet successful journey.



ISLAND PEAK EXPEDITION (Duration: 24 days, Elevation: 6,189m/20,305ft, Difficulty: Low Technical/High Fitness)

This expedition is a superb entry into Himalayan climbing. Island Peak is mostly non-technical with some basic climbing skills required to achieve the ascent. These skills will be taught or revisited during the early stages of the climb. During this expedition we trek through Everest Base Camp, cross the Kongma La and climb Kala Patar.

We approach Island Peak following the trails of the Khumbu Valley, famous for its spectacular villages and views of  the Himalayan giants.  An excellent first expedition objective, this ascent will satisfy your desire to experience a Himalayan summit climb.



DENALI EXPEDITION (Duration: 21 days, Elevation: 6,190m/20,310ft, Difficulty: Moderate Technical/Excellent Fitness)

Mt McKinley, also known as Denali - 'the high one' by Alaska's native people is situated in the Alaska Range 627km/390 miles from the Arctic Circle. Being the highest mountain on the North American continent, it is one of the sought after "Seven Summits".

This an ideal expedition to learn the essentials of high altitude mountaineering with highly qualified expedition guides and leadership (standard and premium support options).  An ascent of Denali is a challenging, yet incredibly rewarding experience.



BOLIVIA EXPEDITION (Duration:18 days, Elevation: 6,200m/20,340ft, Difficulty: Low Technical)

The Cordillera Real of Bolivia is one of the world's major ranges and offers some of the finest and most varied alpine climbing. This allows for instruction time while completing fantastic climbs at low-intermediate grade and altitudes up to 6,200m/20,340ft.  

A five-day ascent of the massive Nevado Illimani (6,462m / 21,201ft) is an ideal add-on to capitalize on existing acclimatization. It is the highest peak in Bolivia and allows you to climb a serious high altitude peak without the hardships of  very low temperatures.



MOUNT GUNNBJORN, GREENLAND EXPEDITION (Duration: 7 days, Elevation: 3,694m/12,119ft, Difficulty: Moderate/High)

Greenland’s highest mountain, Mt Gunnbjörn, is also the highest peak located north of the Arctic Circle. Therefore it does not just hold the title of being the highest peak in Greenland but is also the highest peak of the Arctic.

Mt Gunnbjörn is easily accessible on a ski-plane from Iceland. Once in the Watkins Mountains we set up a comfortable Base Camp at the foot of the mountain. To make the summit day easier we establish one camp on the way to the summit.



MOUNT KENYA EXPEDITION (Duration: 9 days, Elevation: 5,199m/17,058ft, Difficulty: High Technical/High Fitness)

Located in central Kenya, just south of the equator, around 150 km/95 miles north-northeast of Nairobi, Mt Kenya is an extinct volcano with jagged peaks rising to 5,199m/17,058ft. It has three main peaks; Batian, Nelion, and Lenana Peak. Batian and Nelion are permanently iced with snow and small glaciers, and Lenana Peak is a straightforward trekking route. We offer technical guided ascents on the high peaks of Batian or Nelion and a trek on Lenana Peak.

The peaks deliver lively contrast to the equatorial terrain on the approach. To take advantage of conditions, we climb Batian in June and Nelion in December and January. Trekking to Lenana Peak is offered as part of both departures.



ALPAMAYO & ARTESONRAJU EXPEDITION (Duration: 19 or 25 days, Elevation: 5,917m/19,411ft, Difficulty: High/High)

This mountain is often referred to as the most beautiful mountain in the world with its classic fluted snow slopes descending like fingers from the summit.  We acclimatize on an ascent of 5,686m Vallunaraju before moving to Alpamayo for the ultimate ascent. A technical climbing day takes us to a high camp from where we embark on the steep ice-face to the summit.

The ascent of Artesonraju is a much recommended six day add-on that commences while you are still well acclimatized from climbing Alpamayo.  Artesonraju, made famous in the Paramount Pictures logo, is a beautiful pyramidal peak situated between the Santa Cruz and Paron Valleys. This is an exceptional high-altitude technical adventure!


MT KHUITEN, MONGOLIA EXPEDITION (Duration: 16 days, Elevation: 4,375m/14,354ft, Difficulty: Low/Moderate)

​Mt Khuiten is part of a mountain chain called Tavan Bogd, meaning  ‘Five Saints’.  The peaks and associated glaciers are part of a National Park that borders Mongolia, China and Russia. A wild, remote, beautiful wilderness  and abundant wildlife.

This expedition is an opportunity to experience remote mountaineering in a true wilderness landscape.  You will have the opportunity to meet the traditional people who lead a seasonal lifestyle, adapted to the harsh environment.  In addition, you will take in the more modern aspects of Mongolia including the Nadaam Festival in Olgii.



MT ELBRUS EXPEDITION (Duration: 12 & 14 days, Elevation: 5,642m/18,510ft, Difficulty: Low Technical/Moderate Fitness)

​Elbrus is a giant dormant volcano separating Europe from Asia. It is the highest peak in Europe and an appropriate first or second of the Seven Summits.  We begin the expedition in St Petersburg visiting galleries, museums and architecture of this magical city.

Being relatively high, Elbrus demands respect and we approach this by climbing higher each day during our acclimatization phase whilst sleeping at lower elevations at night. The summit day entails climbing long snow slopes with views over the wooded valleys to the surrounding peaks.  After climbing Elbrus, we travel to Moscow, an iconic European city steeped in history.



CHO OYU EXPEDITION (Duration: 44 days, Elevation: 8,201m/26,906ft, Difficulty: High Technical/Excellent Fitness)

Cho Oyu is the world’s sixth highest mountain and considered to be the easiest of the fourteen 8,000m peaks. Many of our expedition members use the experience gained here as a ‘stepping stone’ to Everest - or climb it as their ‘once only’ 8,000m goal.

Our itinerary is designed to include a visit to the city of Lhasa, the heart of Tibetan culture. Here we explore the Potala Palace and other cultural sites while acclimatizing.  As a peak to experience the thin air at 8,000m for the first time, Cho Oyu is ideal.



MT HIMLUNG & SARIBUNG EXPEDITION (Duration: 40 days, Elevation: 7,162m/23,497ft, Difficulty: Moderate/High)

This expedition is a true mountaineering adventure into a remote part of Nepal that has seen few western travelers in recent years.  The climbing is not technically difficult and is ideal for climbers wanting to discover how they perform on a 7,000m peak.

Whatever the motivation, this expedition provides a reason to journey into the heart of the Himalayas and climb a high peak in the Nepali wilderness.  Ascend two major Himalayan peaks and push your altitude experience to a new level above 7,000m.



AMA DABLAM EXPEDITION (Duration: 28 days, Elevation: 6,828m/22,402ft, Difficulty: High Technical/High Fitness)

Ama Dablam’s South West Ridge is one of the most aesthetic climbing routes in the Himalaya.  This expedition fits technically oriented climbers but is never extreme. You need good mountaineering skills, altitude experience and an adventurous attitude.

An exposed rock ridge, dotted with towers and intricate climbing, leads from Camp One to the summit ice fields and top camp site.  On the final day of the climb the route follows steep snow and ice slopes, accentuated by outrageous exposure, directly to the summit.  Here the Everest Massif rears into view - the panorama, if not the altitude, will take your breath away.


CHOLATSE EXPEDITION (Duration: 32 days, Elevation: 6,440m/21,128ft , Difficulty: High Technical/High Fitness)

The challenging South West Ridge of Cholatse is a hidden gem of the Himalaya and a solid mountaineering objective for experienced climbers.  This 6,000+ ascent culminates in a steep and superb ridgeline that plateaus onto a summit dome.


Nestled between the Khumbu and Gokyo Valleys in the Everest region, Cholatse is a spectacular peak with steep soaring lines. Our line up the South West Ridge involves climbing steep snow and ice pitches linking two camps that we place alpine style on our way to the summit. We acclimatize on Lobuche East before crossing the Cho La to our Base Camp beneath the mountain.
