It’s an honor for me to invite you to this 11-day classic Huayhuash trek. It is a famous Peruvian mountain range with high summits and amazing landscapes.

This classic Huayhuash trek will lead you through impressive mountains, deep blue lakes and stunning glaciers. Besides, you will have the opportunity to visit local Andean villages and learn a lot about their culture.

During these 11 days we will not only hike across the Huayhuash mountain range but also visit the highlights of the Cordillera Blanca. This is the most extensive snowy tropical mountain range and has about 700 glaciers.

Some of the most outstanding places we’ll visit are the Siula Grande base camp as well as the San Antonio and Trapecio passes.

So, if you want to join me please keep in mind it is a moderate-difficult trek. That’s why you must have a perfect fitness level since we’ll walk several hours per day.

What people are saying about Quique


I was with Quique and Blass on his initial climb of Sullcon and Paca. It was spectacular, we climbed a new route on a rarely climbed mountain.


Very fun trek with Quique. The food was great. The climb of Artesonraju was amazing and made safe with Quique's skill. Want to do it again!


We trekked / climbed the Alpine version around the Huayhuash and walked with the Condors! We camped at the touching the void expedition's base camp. Beautiful.



Had a great time, felt safe with certified guide.



Our guide, Quique. was top notch. I have used guides all over the world and he stands out in his knowledge, professionalism and kindness. I hope to try and use him in the future. In the mountains, one must adjust to changing conditions and he did so quickly and competently. Besides being one of the nicest people I have ever met, his skills in the mountains cannot be doubted.
