Highlights

 
  • Reach the highest summit in America.

  • Spend two weeks sleeping in the camps of the Andes.

  • Contemplate the unique views from the top of Aconcagua.

 

Located in the Argentinean province of Mendoza, Aconcagua is the highest mountain in America. With its imposing 6,962 meters of altitude, it is an absolute challenge for anyone who wants to take one of its routes to the summit.

On this expedition, we will follow the normal route to the top of the mountain. We will spend two weeks in the mountains, ascend to the camps and take a few days for acclimatization and preparation of the equipment. At the bottom of the page, you can check out our itinerary on the ascent.

Naturally, this climb is very demanding and requires, apart from very good acclimatization, prior experience in the high mountains and an excellent level of fitness.

If you are a mountaineering lover, I am sure that Aconcagua is in your bucket list. Why not take this opportunity and go for this amazing adventure in the Andes during the next season? Book your place now by sending your request.

Also, I lead a 12-day expedition to Ojos del Salado. Check out the trip description!
