Join Fernando, an IFMGA certified mountain guide from Spain, who had climbed the Aconcagua more than 30 times! Ascend to its summit via the normal route.
Jan, Feb, Dec
Cerro Aconcagua is a mountain of the Central Andes and is located in the northwestern tip of the province of Mendoza (Argentina) within the Aconcagua Provincial Park. It is the highest peak in America and at the same time, the highest one in the world outside Asia.
The mountain reaches a maximum height of 6,962 meters. Several glaciers cross its slopes; the most important are the Polaco glacier (northeast) and the English glacier (east).
Undoubtedly, the Aconcagua is one of the mountains most frequented by mountaineers from around the world as it presents a real challenge. I will accompany you to reach its summit by the great “normal route” of Horcones.
This route ascends through different base camps that grow in height as we go up. For each section, of course, certain days of rest will be needed. The most outstanding spots of the normal route are the following ones. They’re listed following the increasing order of altitude:
Base Camp (Plaza de Mulas),
Piedra de 5000,
Cambio de Pendiente,
Nido de Cóndores,
Portezuelo de los Vientos,
And finally: Aconcagua Summit!
Currently, to enter the Aconcagua Provincial Park it is necessary to acquire a permit in the Directorate of Renewable Natural Resources of the province of Mendoza. This is a government agency that regulates the fees for tourists and its cost varies from year to year. It is not included in the final price of the program.
As a lover of mountaineering and especially of this beautiful mountain in Argentina, I have climbed Aconcagua 35 times and I have stayed at its peak for 66 days. I can assure you the safest ascent with the best team of guides.

I was looking for a local guide for a hike I was planning and came across Explore-Share. They seemed to have good reviews and so decided to give them a try. The experience was very positive and completely happy with their service. I will be using them again for next trip.
Easy to set up and find the perfect trip. Informative site that is easy to use. Guides are all great to work with and communicate all arrangements needed. As simple as can be!
Thank you explore-share for a wonderful via feratta experience. We have been wanting to learn for a long time but don't have the facilities in Scotland. The guide Mitja was extremely helpful and knowledgeable, answering all my many questions and providing advice. On the day head to take another group but he quickly arranged another guide Borut, who was brilliant. We had a fantastic morning learning via ferrata at Hvadnik in the gorge. It gave us the confidence to later hire our own equipment and go out in Mojstrana. Altogether a five star + experience. Thank you.
