Hiking trips – Mendoza

You can be remembered as the brave who crossed the Andes from Mendoza...

The main star of Mendoza is undoubtedly Mount Aconcagua, the highest mountain in the southern hemisphere and the entire American continent. It is not necessary to reach its peak of almost 7000 meters in height to enjoy a challenging hiking program. You can ascend to its camp sites at different levels, such as Plaza Francia, Plaza de Mulas or the Base Camp.

In addition, in Mendoza you have many other alternatives to live one or several days of pure hiking: Potrerillos, Confluencia, Tunuyan and endless trails along the Cordon del Plata.

Finally, if you want to stay in the history of the bravest, you can not miss a guided crossing of the Andes, from Mendoza to Santiago or other incredible Chilean locations.

We wish we could have Simon as our guide on every trek we do. His mountaineering experience and extensive knowledge
of the area was impressive and definitely enhanced the trek for us. On top of this, we got along great with Simon and appreciate his easy going personality and sense of humor. We will definitely request Simon as our guide for the next hike we do from El Chalten!
Christopher Smyth for Huemul Circuit Trekking, El Chaltén
A tough but thoroughly rewarding hike. The challenges of the trek are matched by the stunning views, unique flora, and
wonderful people you meet along the way.
Recientemente fui guiado en el circuito de Cerro Huemul por Luis, quien era un guía muy experimentado, experto y profesional.
Ayudó con los 2 cruces de tirolesa, la parte de la caminata que requería caminar sobre el glaciar, y significó que nunca tuve dudas sobre dónde llevaba el sendero. Merlin organizó a la perfección toda la comida, el equipo y la transferencia de retorno desde el final del camino. Debido a que toda la experiencia transcurrió tan bien, y Luis hizo que mi caminata fuera tan cómoda y agradable, definitivamente recomendaría esta compañía. El sendero en sí era hermoso, con muchas vistas impresionantes y estoy muy contento de haberlo experimentado. Entre los puntos destacados se encuentran los Campos de Hielo de la Patagonia Sur después de escalar sobre Windy Pass, así como los cóndores al otro lado del paso Huemul y las vistas desde el último campamento.
Lucas is an all-round and really good guide. I really enjoyed my trip with him. He is capable of adjusting
the difficulty of the terrain to the capabilities of his clients. Would recommend him to anybody.
Everything about the experience was perfect – Sebastian was an amazing guide, the trek was incredible and every detail from
the food to the equipment could not have been better. Absolutely unforgettable experience.
Absolutely awesome, one of the best weeks of my life! Did the 6 day basecamp trek and the scenery cannot
be compared to anything! Amazing guides who were so knowledgeable, friendly and funny!
I did the 6 Day Basecamp Trek through Patagonia and had a blast. The trip was amazing, with amazing views
and the hiking top notch. I would totally go back and do another one of the hikes offered by Mountaineering Patagonia.
I just returned from an incredibly memorable and exciting trip from Patagonia, the highlight being the 6 day Base Camps
trek with Mountaineering Patagonia. The trip was well organized, the food was amazing (I think we all gained weight somehow despite the long days of hiking) and the guides were wonderful-particularly our lead guide Juan. If you’re looking for an adventurous outdoor experience with a team that truly knows and loves the area I highly recommend them. The experience could not have been better. Thank you Merlin, Juan & the rest of Mountaineering Patagonia for an incredible time!
Had a really amazing time on this trek. Most credit to our very knowledgeable guide Juan, his assistant Matthias who
was also a good cook and porters Waco and Patto. The trip was very well organized, and we learned a lot from being hands on as far as pitching and taking down our own tents. The views were amazing and everyday had something different to offer. Would definitely recommend Mountaineering Patagonia to anyone who wants see the beauty of Patagonia. Would love to do the Southern Ice field someday with the same company
impresionante la excursión!!! vale la pena cada minuto dentro de la montaña, sus hielos, paisajes y atardeceres. Algo que no
borraré nunca de mi alma. Gracias Mountaineering Patagonia, un servicio excelente, un guía de primera – experiencia de vida.-
