Brian from the USA said: “..Every year, my wife and I trek somewhere in the world for a week or two, always self supported. This year we decided to do the Huayhuash Circuit, but do it with a guide. After talking to four different outfits in town, we decided to go with Peruvian Andes Adventures. We were blown away by the service of all their staff. They were very easy to deal with in the planning stages, providing lots of detailed information about the area, the trek, the logistics, etc. We were very particular about the itinerary and they work with us to make our specific desires happen”
Trip pricing varies depending on the length of the trek, number of clients in the group and if climbing – the difficulty of the peak. Many of our trips are “tailor made” with special requests for a trek route or climb or combination of trek & climb.
Prices are not published on our website – contact us with some information about what you would like to do, the number of people and length of trip and we will send you some ideas for different options and prices.
There are many agencies on Huaraz that are not registered, operate with unqualified staff & offer budget level service and pricing. Many are operating illegally and pay NO taxes. These operators can risk – if caught- being shut down at any time by taxation authorities and having their assets seized.
To protect our clients (for insurance purposes) we are fully registered, operate legally and pay necessary taxes.
We cannot compete on price with the budget operators.
Carolyn from Canada / Cordillera Huayhuash Trek…. “. Yes, you will pay more than with some companies but the high quality service and absolutely amazing food is well worth the difference”
Our staff are paid at above standard rates and are paid promptly. Many staff report to us that other operators delay making wage payment for several weeks or months and not infrequently do not pay cooks or donkey drivers at all.
We are one of very few companies in Huaraz to have an insurance contingency fund for staff in the event of a staff member suffering an accident & injury while working in the mountains.
Our prices reflect our commitment to provide only top quality superior service at a fair price, enabling us to reinvest in staff training, safe practises and quality equipment – plus also to treat our staff with respect and pay them a fair living wage for the work they do.
John from the USA did an Alpamayo Circuit Trek & Climbed Pisco: “..PAA does both the big and the small details right. Everyone is focussed on ensuring your adventure, trek or climb is done safely and with the greatest chance it will be successful. I give PAA my highest recommendation!
