Chile is a country of big and beautiful mountains. The Andean mountain range spans almost 9000 kms and covers from North to South almost 4600 kms of Chilean soil. This draws the admiring looks of people from all over the world to these impressive giants that elevate themselves over the Chilean landscape.
AndesContact is a company that aims to accomplish a variety of outdoor activities - within a mountainous setting - catering for all levels of experience of its participants. For over 10 years we have been organising climbs in the Andean mountain range, ranging from the highest peaks in the North of the country of mainly over 6000 metres down to snowy and green mountains in the South of Chile.
AndesContact offers a variety of programmes that can be adapted to cater for the different needs and interests of its participants, as do the services we offer to companies.
Our mission is to deliver a high quality service to those participating in our trips and climbs to these unique landscapes, in which safety is always a prime concern. All of our guides/instructors meet UIAA standards and are certified in wilderness first aid (Wilderness First Responder), and have extensive local knowledge, and as professionals are of course fully committed to their work.
We invite you to be part of the adventures that AndesContact has to offer.
