Why Infinito Sur Expediciones ?
| 12 Years Extensive Route Experience
For more than 12 years INFINITO SUR has been combining the physical challenge of climbing and trekking with the cultural and aesthetic experiences of the last wild places on earth. We are based in the Central Patagonia and we have strong relationships with local people, mountaineers, Park Authorities, local agencies, Park Rangers, Muleteers, Hotel Owners, etc. This continued relationship has allowed us to build upon a standard of excellence, giving our clients the consistency they deserve year after year and make us unique. Together we have pioneered the safest, most scenic and comfortable routes, scouted for those perfect campsites, and discovered the best of what's off the beaten track.
INFINITO SUR recognizes that our clients are the ones that allow us to keep doing what we love, professionally. Because of that, your business is important to us and we want to ensure that every aspect of your INFINITO SUR experience is an enjoyable one. Not only does INFINITO SUR have experts in the regions that our client's travel, but we also have a US contact who is here to answer all of your questions. All of the logistics for a smooth trip, down to the smallest of details, have been checked, double-checked and confirmed. Whether its equipment questions, training suggestions, recommendations for trip extensions or assistance with travel plans, our Area Specialist's expertise lies in knowing the activities and regions we explore.
World Class Guides and Staff
We believe that our incredible guides and staff are the foundation of our programs. All of our guides are highly skilled professionals who have been selected based on their technical proficiency, proven safety records, careful judgement, patient and supportive teaching styles and great personalities. Our guides are dedicated to the world of alpinism, many having first ascents and successful summits on major peaks in the Patagonia all the way to Himalayas. In addition to their impressive personal achievements in the field, INFINITO SUR guides bring a wealth of natural history, cultural anthropology and linguistic knowledge for their group's enlightenment. All of our guides and staff surpass the needs of our clientele and make their trip enjoyable beyond expectations. We celebrate the relationships with our oversea operators that are built on camaraderie and trust. In short, we provide the most experienced and dedicated guides, high altitude sherpas, reliable porters, and staff for all of our trips.
Traveling Safely and Ethically
Your safety and comfort are tremendously important to us. That is why we maintain the highest quality of service possible, from carefully designing itineraries for proper acclimatization, to upholding the most scrupulous sanitary standards while preparing and cooking meals. Our guides are trained for backcountry emergencies, educated in altitude sickness and well versed in the politics, cultural considerations and customs surrounding their region of travel. As guests to the areas we encounter, INFINITO SUR recognizes the magnitude of our environmental and cultural impact. It is therefore extremely important that our groups adhere to the "Leave No Trace" travel and camping techniques in passing through local and foreign lands. We endeavor to be role models for those around us and hope that our travels contribute to awareness and change needed for reducing the impact of future tourism.
In an effort to minimize your in-country expenses on international trips, INFINITO SUR has increased the services we include in the land costs. And with the exception of Aconcogua, porter support is included on all South American adventures. Land costs include all hotel and camping expenses, staff and guide services, group gear, in-country airport transfers, as well as all scheduled activities during your trip (museum visits, city tours, etc). These and other additional inclusions eliminates the "hidden costs" often associated with many expeditions and the frustration felt from spending more than you had budgeted for in-country expenses.
Flexible schedule on the mountain
We already stated that INFINITO SUR plans sufficient weather and acclimatization days for the every expedition trip. In the best case scenario, providing that weather is superb and everyone acclimatizes well, we may be ahead of schedule. On the other hand, we may need to use every day of the trip due to weather, acclimatization etc. Our unique flexibility makes Patagonia Xpress far ahead in this aspect. We communicate directly with our mule manager from anywhere on the mountain. After summiting, we request our mules via VHF radios or satellite phone proven to be essential to the success of the expedition. Imagine finally you have your calm day to go for the summit, after waiting several days at High Camp for the weather to clear, but instead having to go back to Base Camp because your mules are scheduled to pick your gear up at Base
Camp that day! Or imagine finishing your climb 3 days earlier but you still have to wait in Base Camp 3 more days until your mules arrive. With our flexible schedule we have the unique advantage to achieve a successful climb and to get you back to civilization as efficiently as possible.
Customized Itineraries to Meet Your Goals
INFINITO SUR is more than happy to custom design a trip or course to meet your goals. If you have an extension to an existing trip in mind, would like to travel with a private group, or if your schedule requires specific dates that we presently do not offer, we will do our best to Make It Happen. Our trips and courses are designed to safely bring the beauty and excitement of adventure to those who pursue it. All of our trips are carefully planned to ensure proper acclimatization, maximum comfort, and nutritious gourmet meals. INFINITO SUR maintains the vision of achieving serious, high quality guiding and instruction while having the most fun possible.
