welcome to Alvarado adventures

Alvarado Adventures is a family run business that specializes in organizing and leading mountaineering and trekking programs in the Cordilleras Blanca and Huayhuash. On these pages you will find information on the programs we offer, advice on many subjects, from travel, logistics, health, equipment to simply how to choose the best objective for you or your group.

Most of our clients are individuals and individual groups, who hire our services to advise, organize and facilitate their Peruvian trekking and mountaineering adventures. Also, we often work with other commercial operators from overseas, typically North America and Europe.

We arrange mountain guiding services (trekking and climbing) transport to and from Huaraz to the trail head, burros and arrieros (burro handlers), base camp and trekking infrastructure (food, cook, plus dining, cooking, personal and toilet tents) porters as desired, permits and park entrance fees. We can also help you with your hotel selection as well as transport from Lima to Huaraz and return.

As you look through the many pages on our site describing the varied climbing and trekking opportunities, be sure to view the "more photos" link on the left side of the page, as well as the Goggle Earth file link to help you visualize the program. After all, "a picture tells a thousand words".

Thank you for visiting. We hope some day to meet you in person!
