17 Days


Jan - Mar, Dec






Credit Card, Wire Transfer and more!

  • Discover a marvellous landscape in Argentina
  • Reach the summit of the highest peak in America: the Aconcagua
  • Get breathtaking views of the Andes from its top


Aconcagua is one of the most majestic mountains on Earth! So don’t miss out this opportunity to reach its summit on this 17 days ascent via the Normal Route.

Cerro Aconcagua is a magnificent peak in the province of Mendoza, in Argentina. It rises above 6,962 meters over the Central Andes and it is the highest mountain in America

The journey to get to Aconcagua will be an unforgettable adventure as we pass by different spots that are wonderful on their own, such as the Penitentes ski resort, Plaza de Mulas, and Plaza Canada. Moreover, there are several glaciers across its terrain, making this a truly exciting trip.

Then, the normal route we’ll take to Aconcagua’s summit is amazing. It is one of the most famous ones. And it will allow us to enjoy the mesmerizing sceneries and get acclimatized as we ascend.

Also, I have set some days for the sole purpose of resting and acclimatization. Being such a high peak, ascending Aconcagua will require all our effort. But don’t worry. I will follow you all the way to the top, to make sure you are safe while having a fantastic time.

So if you want to join this expedition, just send me a request. It would be my absolute pleasure to be your guide on this marvelous adventure.

What people are saying about Carlos



Carlos is a very accomplished rock climber, speaks great English, and is fun to be around. We felt very safe while climbing with him on the Sharks Fin, and learned a lot too.



Hey, So I had a great time on this journey in the Atacama desert and up the the Ojos del Salado. Looking forward for other adventures of this kind :)



Carlos was a professional and committed guide! We had three great days. He was friendly and guided us savely up to mt blanc. i dont understand the one bad rating carlos got. In my opinion it think it was an bloody amateur which shouldnt have been on mt blanc in the first place. Let me say one thing. If you have no experience on higher mountains and in climbing in general, there is no place for you on mt blanc. train hard, prepare and come with the right expectation!



The whole trip was excellent. Explore share did a great job coordinating. Carlos is an experienced guide and effective teacher. I felt safe with him the whole time we were on the mountain. The weather was terrific and we summited just as expected. I highly recommend Carlos Vasquez for Mont Blanc.



El guía Carlos, siempre fue muy atento y responsable en lo que compete a sus funciones, nunca me sentí desconfiado o desprotegido. Posee un alto conocimiento técnico asi también como una gran experiencia como guía. estoy sumamente agradecido pues su perfil fue muy acertado para mi persona. 100% recomendados para cualquier otra persona que busque un guía. El servicio brindados por Uds. la organización Explore-share tambien esta bien bien puntuado, siempre me proporcionaron informacion clara, transparente y real. 100% recomendados
