Book seats on Aconcagua! Now is the most convenient time. 7 Summits Club Tour Schedule

The authorities of the Aconcagua National Park are in doubt as to how they should behave in a pandemic. On the one hand, they cannot afford another missed season. And they need income, and hotels, and guides, and mules need food. However, you also need to show your concern about the possible spread of infection through the base camp. The example of Everest shows that this is not fiction.  The body's defenses weaken at altitude and it is easier for the virus to penetrate it.  It is extremely difficult to separate people, to ensure social distance. No one will seriously do this.

Local guides and tour organizers strongly object to the shortening of the season. In their opinion, this will only lead to more dense accommodation of tourists, which will have the opposite effect. After all, there are willing, given the delayed demand due to the missed season.  There is still a little time to change something. But for now, the season is officially shortened and will begin on January 1, 2022.

We usually complete preparations for Antarctica in the calendar summer. That is, by the beginning of September, all the lists of tourists traveling and flying to Antarctica were always ready. But this year we are just getting out of the covid press.  Will there be a season in Antarctica? There was no affirmative answer to this question for a long time.  And it took longer than usual to form groups.  There was demand, and the demand is deferred. Since last season was completely canceled by the American logistics organizers on the Ice Continent.  Now all issues have been resolved and agreed. There will be a season and we already have groups.  But in other countries, booking is worse than usual. And there are unsold seats in many positions.  We publish a full list of our arrivals.  The availability of seats may be confirmed, maybe not. Guaranteed to have one place from January 6 on Vinson and Sidley.

In the program "Seven volcanoes" there is an absolutely definite main mountain. This is Mount Sidley. The most remote volcano from civilization, ascents on which are not organized every year.  And no more than one group per season. In January 2022, the group of climbers will be headed by the director of the 7 Summits Club, the incomparable Lyudmila Korobeshko, who will "close" the Seven Volcanoes program. As a rule, all applications for a trip to Antarctica stop being accepted on September 1. Then you can only hope for someone's cancelation. Now is such a case! The lucky one is waiting for a completely unusual journey, the adventure of whole life, and even in a wonderful company.

Daria Sivova, guide of the 7 Summits Club: Hello everyone from Dengboche! We haven't been in touch for the last three days, but we're doing great! The day before yesterday, we finally reached Everest Base Camp through the small villages of Lobuche and Goraksherp. The scale of the Base Camp impressed the participants: the altitude was 5365m, the mood was great, the weather was great!

At the Everest Base Camp, we split into two groups: those who stayed overnight at the Base Camp, and those who went down to Goraksherp to climb Kalapatar in the morning. Those who remained at the Base Camp met with a team of climbers on Mount Everest and Lhotse, they celebrated the Victory Day May 9. The evening ended with a festive dinner.

Yesterday we spent a night in Dengboche, today a trekking group descends to Namche Bazaar, and a group of climbers on Island Peak stays, waiting for the weather to climb it.

Guides: Sergey Avtomonov and Darya Sivova.

The 7 Summits Club and the expedition headquarters of Fyodor Konyukhov came to an agreement to conduct an expedition on Ararat in August 2021. Together with the greatest Russian traveler of our time, we have already visited the summits of Mount Everest, Kilimanjaro and Elbrus, and this year we climbed Orizaba. Ararat will be a logical continuation of our cooperation. We know that the Bible mountain has long been a cherished dream of Fyodor. The experience of the past year allows us to hope that we will meet all the commitments we have made. In 2020, several groups of the 7 Summits Club successfully climbed the top of Mount Ararat. At the same time, thanks to the efforts of our President, Alex Abramov, we have provided the best service in the area.

Happy New Year! We wish you good health and new summits! Let join us!

 In 2020, the 7 Summits Club entered at full speed, in the usual rhythm and in full confidence in our strength. During the New Year period of 19/20, our groups traveled all over the world, mainly in the Southern Hemisphere. All our programs were successful, members of ascents and hikes returned home happy.

 Then the madness came, and quarantine crept up on us. But we did not lose heart and conducted online training sessions that helped us prepare in the summer!

 We managed to get a full season on Elbrus, in the summer every week groups of the 7 Summits Club climbed the summit. And this summer there lasted until mid-October! We have rediscovered Ararat! Tanzania with Kilimanjaro in general was the only country completely safe from COVID, and we returned to Africa when returned flights! Now South America has opened a little, Ecuador, Mexico and Chile are hosting guests. And our groups already climbed local summits…

 Celebrating the New Year, we wish all mankind to defeat the evil infection! And thanks for the lessons of the outgoing year! We began to more appreciate freedom, we realized that we could not live without traveling and climbing!

 Everest, Denali, Antarctica, Aconcagua and other mountains – how lonely its were without us this year! How its are waiting for us!

 Sincerely yours, the 7 Summits Club.
