We will take a maximum of 12 trekkers with each departure, hence spaces are limited. We can also take private groups, please enquire for details.
We employ strong and specialised Expedition leaders and Sherpa staff, who are some of the most pre-eminent in the industry. We pride ourselves on operating with small teams, the best back-up and support available. Our 2017 trekking guide team includes:
Caroline Ogle - Trekking Guide
Caroline is AC's Operations Manager and has worked in Nepal on a regular basis since 2009. The trek to Everest Base Camp is a familiar one for Caroline, having spent seven of the last eight years trekking in and out with her work as Everest Base Camp Manager, Operations Manager and guiding treks. Her depth of knowledge about the area and the people brings an intimate insight of life in Nepal to the trek.
Anthea Fisher - Trekking Guide
Anthea has been our Everest Base Camp Manager for the last two years and returns to this role again in 2017. She is a dedicated outdoors professional with her roles taking her to some of the furthest, coldest corners of the globe. She works as a field guide and in management logistics for the Australian Antarctic Division and now at Everest Base Camp. Anthea will be guiding a Private Luxury Trek and together with Caroline, she will also be guiding our Everest Base Camp Trek #1.
Rene Schwaller - Trekking Guide

For the past 30 years he has been guiding people heliskiing in the Southern Alps of New Zealand during the winter months and as an adventure trekking guide both in New Zealand and around the world during the summer months.

Mark Morrison - Mountain Guide
Based in Hawea Flat near Wanaka, Mark has been climbing since he was a youngster and has considerable guiding and instructing experience.

Mark will be guiding our Everest Base Camp Trek #3.
Running successful journeys and expeditions is more about experience, knowledge and strategic management than any other factors. As an organisation, we place a substantial amount of time and resources into ensuring our trips are well planned and supported. You can be assured that the AC staff will provide you with friendly advice and knowledgeable support throughout the planning stages of your trip and we will be there to provide backup while the trip is running.
