GUIDED MOUNTAINEERING & TREKKING PACKAGES
A guided mountaineering expedition or guided trekking trip is a perfect way to visit this incredible area of Peru and blend the feel of a "holiday" with the actual challenges of an outdoor adventure. As with any vacation, your focus will be enjoying yourself and the spectacular scenery around you while the guide, cook, donkey drivers and/or porters set up each camp, serve delicious food and drink and help you be successful with the physical demands of each day. Your team will come together in a way that you rarely experience in urban life, with the shared beauty of the sunsets, the struggles of the ascents, the humor of the dinner conversation, and the emotion of all the 'yet-to-come'. We have trips suitable for everyone with all levels of difficulty & technicality, progressions to help you learn what you need to know and to meet your specific goals. No previous experience is needed for many of our trips. Please ask if you have any doubts about your participation!
Designed for those who want to learn the skills and techniques of safe alpine climbing, our 6-day Mountaineering Course is a great way to begin a long life of adventure above the snow-line. We offer a full-service Lima to Lima course set-up as well as the course-only version for those who would prefer to get to Huaraz and acclimatize on their own. Most of our mountaineering course students have some prior experience in the outdoors be it camping, hiking, climbing, skiing or something else. Some have been on mountains before and are ready to take the next step towards independent alpine adventures. Others are brand new to the sport but want to have their first experience be an educational one. Our signature mountaineering course was designed by a team of alpinists and educators who crafted the curriculum from their combined multiple decades of alpine experience, carefully choosing each subject, drafting lesson plans, making sure that each piece would fit into the next and that the result would be an invaluable TOOL that we'd all wished someone had given us before heading out to learn these lessons ourselves! We are confident that this course is one of the best alpine education modules in the world, we are thrilled to be able to offer it in the alpine paradise of the Cordillera Blanca and we are excited to have you join us for the adventure!
CUSTOM-DESIGNED INSTRUCTIONAL COURSES:
With an extensive background in the field of outdoor education and strong beliefs in what the wilderness has to teach, Skyline Adventures offers custom course design & programming for University groups and outdoor clubs or other types of expeditionary programs. We have built incredible itineraries for groups from around the world and run programs between 4-65 days in length, with backpacking, mountaineering, rock climbing, mountain biking, rafting, service projects, school visits, archeological tours, amongst others and curriculums that have included outdoor living skills, climbing camps, team-building & leadership, WFR (wilderness first responder) courses, personal development, environmental issues, historical investigations and more! We can provide services at the level you desire for your group; working with other guides and chaperones is something we feel we are able to do seamlessly and successfully. Having over 15 years of experience operating in the Cordillera Blanca and Huayhuash has also given us ample opportunity to fine-tune our risk-management & emergency response plans, two important items which often times present a road-block for outside groups wanting to run programs in this area. Working together, we can create the safe and unforgettable trip you have always wanted for your clientele! Send us a message with your ideas and we’ll begin working on a customized itinerary for your group.
