Description

I would like to invite you to reach the summit of Aconcagua by its normal route.

The program I want to offer this time is longer than usual. This is because the idea of this trip is to increase the chances of success for those climbers who need extra acclimatization.

In addition to that, during this 20-day mountain trip you won't only climb Aconcagua but also Mt. Bonete.

During this adventure we'll take advantage of the normal route, which is technically easy. The focus will be on controlling the effects of altitude, which are what makes this route difficult. That is why I am so careful with acclimatization.

The first treks are especially important. They will help us to acclimatize well. We will first approach Plaza de Mulas (a 3-day trek) and then Plaza Francia. It is the Base Camp of Aconcagua's south wall.

In order to help with acclimatization and enjoy the experience to the fullest, we will also climb Mt. Bonete (4900m). And then we will be ready for our biggest goal!

This program includes 2 added days of double equipment porting and extra days in case of bad weather. Please keep in mind that at high altitude there is sometimes a white wind that makes the ascent harder. That is why I use those "security days" to increase our chances of success.

If you're an advanced climber, take a look at my 19-day program to Mount Aconcagua. It's perfect for those who don't need so much acclimatization.

Acclimatization issues are no longer an excuse! Contact me now and I'll be here, ready to help you get to the Aconcagua summit.

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.

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.

Hello! I have been thoroughly impressed by the service and assistance that explore-share have provided the past couple years in helping to plan my trip to the High Tatras in Poland. I really appreciated the flexibility that they provided in allowing me to rearrange my trip twice owing to covid. They were responsive and communicative throughout. This trip was part of my Stag weekend celebrations and explore-share connected me with an outstanding guide in the form of Marcel - he was an excellent recommendation and we really enjoyed our guided hike in the High Tatras with him. Marcel was an outstanding professional, placed a high focus on preparing well and staying safe, and was also a great guy! Highly recommend. Many thanks and best wishes - Richard
