An experience that I will always cherish and never forget
“Ever since my aunt lent me a copy of ‘Touching the Void’ when I was about 10 years old, I had dreamed of going to the Peruvian Andes. The Perú climbing school was the realization of that lifelong dream. With a fantastic group of guides and fellow clients, I was able to experience the beauty and grandeur of the Cordillera Blanca while learning new skills and summiting a nearly 19,000 foot peak. It was an experience that I will always cherish and never forget.”
Simply amazing people running an outstanding company
“Simply amazing people running an outstanding company. From the accommodations to the food, the knowledge and experience of the guides, and the impeccable planning, every aspect of the Ring of Fire tour was top-notch. The trip had a great flow despite all the changes due to the weather. I can’t speak highly enough about Alpenglow Expeditions!”
The weather was no match for our guide’s decades of experience keeping us safe on the mountain
“I joined a group on the June 2017 Ecuador climbing school trip that ended up successfully summiting Cayambe through rain and poor visibility. The weather was no match for our guide’s decades of experience keeping us safe on the mountain. Our guide was knowledgeable, caring, and an all-around great guy. Alpenglow clearly did their due diligence when planning the trip when it came to acclimatization and logistics. From meeting my guide at the airport to being dropped off at the airport, everything went without a hitch. While some guides rush clients up the mountain in a couple days, we climbed 2 previous smaller peaks earlier in the week to prepare our bodies. I can’t stress enough how much of a difference that made. We–by far–had the best experience on the mountain that day. Many thanks to the Alpenglow team!”
The trip exceeded my expectations
“I had the privilege of joining the Volcanoes of Mexico Climbing School (December 2019) led by Armando. There were 3 others on the climb, and it felt like family the entire trip. It was a great experience from the time we landed at the airport: hotels and accommodations were great, transportation and logistics went smoothly, the Mexican food was amazing. We also had the opportunity to visit and sightsee in a few incredible Mexican towns–all while meeting our objectives of climbing a few mountains and learning valuable mountaineering skills. Armando is an incredible local guide having climbed in Mexico (and around the world) for more than 30 years. You can tell he really enjoys what he does. Alpenglow works with their clients to help them achieve their goals from the moment they sign up for the climb, offering training and nutrition plans, and providing a safe and enjoyable climbing experience.
Overall, the trip exceeded my expectations and I would do it again…..after I climb a few other mountains first!”
Cool opportunity to climb a big peak in a short period of time
“Climbing Ojos with Alpenglow was a cool opportunity to climb a big peak in a short period of time. The Atacama region was unique, and the climb itself was challenging though very doable. Guiding and logistics were top-notch.”
One of the most incredible ski trips ever
“One of the most incredible ski trips ever. Amazing country, amazing guides, amazing mountains and amazing skiing. I would highly recommend Ecuador and Alpenglow.”
For a peak like Aconcagua, I knew that Alpenglow could deliver
“I’ve climbed internationally with Alpenglow multiple times. When attempting a peak as important as Aconcagua, I knew they would deliver. While no summit can be guaranteed. Alpenglow employs very good guides. The logistics are all top-notch. Tico was all-around an amazing guide. He helped with every detail. Can’t recommend the company enough–simply the best.”
Incredible! One of the many words that can be used to describe climbing with Alpenglow
“Incredible! One of the many words that can be used to describe climbing with Alpenglow in Bolivia and the Cordillera Real. Prior to Bolivia, I had completed the Ecuador Climbing School with Alpenglow, so this was the IDEAL expedition that would take my mountaineering skills to the next level. I was fortunate enough to have three amazing guides who truly cared about teaching our team the skill sets needed to safely succeed on these more challenging peaks. I cannot recommend partnering with Alpenglow enough. By choosing Alpenglow, you will receive transparent logistics, expert guides, detailed itineraries, and truly an unforgettable experience. If you want to take your mountaineering skills to the next level, this is the trip!”
I had an absolute blast
“I had an absolute blast–everything ran super smoothly. The program was incredibly well-designed to maximize both acclimatization and rest, and both Nacho and Christian were rock stars. I’d climb with either of them again in a heartbeat, and would 100% recommend the program to anyone!”
I had pretty high expectations for this trip – and they were absolutely blown away
“I had pretty high expectations for this trip – and they were absolutely blown away. A lot of that credit goes to the guides, Nacho and Cristian. Not only was the climbing portion integral to feeling confident moving forward with mountaineering, as well as the 2 successful summits, but the trip was truly fun. I’m really impressed with the attention to detail, and how smoothly everything runs between the Alpenglow office, the local operations/logistics teams, and the guides.”
