Description

On this 1-day Aconcagua trek, we will enjoy a thrilling hiking experience to the famous Confluencia Base Camp, at an altitude of 3300m.

Our adventure will begin early in the morning in Mendoza. We will pick you up at your hotel and drive to the Aconcagua Provincial Park. On the way, we will stop at the stunning Puente del Inca, famous for the sulfurous yellow rocks that outline it. After admiring this unique landmark, we will continue on to the park where we hike to the Confluencia Base Camp on one of the many mountaineering routes that lead to the top of this big, friendly, South American giant. We will be able to admire its stunning south face before returning.

Keep in mind that you will need a good fitness level to climb to the Base Camp as we will spend several hours trekking uphill, however, this is not a demanding trek from a technical point of view. Of course, we will be there every step of the way to help you and reveal this beautiful spot in the Andes to you.

If you would like to join one of these thrilling Aconcagua Treks, they run from November to March, and all you need to do is send us a message and we can start planning this outing together. We look forward to guiding you!
