The Seven Summits are the highest mountains of each of the seven continents.
Climbing to the summit of all of them is regarded as a mountaineering challenge. It was first achieved on 30 April 1985 by Richard Bass. As of 2016 just over 400 people had completed the challenge.

We break the Seven Summits into 3 manageable groups.
The “final 2” are exactly what they say. Your last 2 summits in the challenge. Everest and Vinson. You’ve already climbed the “first 3” and the “next 2” with us, so we know you are going all the way.
We offer the “final 2”, Everest and Vinson as a package and they can both be done within 1 year. We group them together purely because they are both high cost expeditions. Vinson is best climbed in December and is a perfect finish to the challenge, having very high success rates and being moderately physically.
Everest – April thru June
Vinson – December
If you do not have the time or funds to book them together you can approach them separately.
The cost of Everest and Vinson booked together is $ 108 000 USD
This does not include international flights that we can advise on.
*We also offer bespoke packages such as 1:1 executive guiding and coaching, speed records, 5 in a year, even all 7 in a year, non standard routes to the summit.
