Seven Summits

The greatest challenge on every continent.

Just as each continent is different, every one of the world’s highest peak presents its own unique challenges. Our proven experience in the world’s most difficult environments ensures you’ll have the best possible chance of summiting any - or indeed all - of these iconic mountains.

Seven Summits

As the highest peak in South America - and the highest mountain on the planet outside of Asia - Aconcagua represents a significant conquest for any mountaineer. Surrounded by dramatic glaciers, including the 10km long Ventisquero Horcones Inferior, this magnificent 6,961m high peak is not without its challenges, but is not considered hugely difficult from a technical point of view. Many climbers - and Elite Exped clients - use this as a preparatory peak ahead of tackling greater objectives in the Himalayas.

Mount Everest, known to locals as Sagarmatha, is undoubtedly on the bucket list of every climber. Who wouldn't want to conquer the highest mountain on the planet?

Seven Summits

Europe’s highest mountain, which sits in the Kabardino-Balkaria region of Russia, was largely off-limits to Western climbers under 80 years of Soviet rule. In fact, many climbers completed an ‘alternative’ Seven Summits, which included Mont Blanc. More recently however, this majestic mountain has been restored to its rightful place in the climbing pantheon. It is a must for anyone wanting to tackle the true tallest peaks on every continent.

“Kilimanjaro is a snow-covered mountain 19,710 feet high, and is said to be the highest mountain in Africa. Its western summit is called the Masai 'Ngaje Ngai', the House of God.” So begins Ernest Hemingway’s The Snows of Kilimanjaro, one of the many stories that have helped cement the legend of this beguiling mountain - and make it one of the most popular of the Seven Summits.

At 4,897m above sea level, Mount Vinson is one of the lowest of the Seven Summits, but it’s up there with Everest as one of the most challenging. The highest mountain in Antarctica never gets much snow, but is battered year-round by brutally strong polar winds. In an environment where summer temperatures hover at around minus 30, the added wind chill is some of the most severe on earth. In such an extreme environment, efficient operations and decisive leadership can make all the difference. That’s where Elite Exped comes in.

Carstensz Pyramid, or Punack Jaya, as it’s known to locals, is the highest island peak in the world. Rising 4,884m above the lush Indonesian jungle which covers much of New Guinea, it’s also the highest point in Australasia, and one of the Seven Summits. The altitude may not be particularly high, but the rough, hard rock and technical climbing sections make this a tricky mountain to climb. Furthermore, the remoteness and occasional political instability in the region can make the trip a challenge - but one that Elite Exped are uniquely qualified to help you meet.
