This adventure is one of the most fascinating in America: reaching the summit of Aconcagua at 6962 m.
This mountain has a special magnetism that attracts mountaineers from all over the world who dream to reach its peak.
As an IFMGA mountain guide, I had the chance to guide 40 expeditions that reached the summit on the last 25 years.
During this time I learned about the challenges that you can face during this expedition, and the best way to overcome them. In fact, I share all my experience in my own book: ‘Aconcagua, La Cima de América’.
In this expedition I offer a great adventure for mountaineers in high altitude. You can learn about living in harmony with nature, fellowship and solidarity. Actually, I believe these are the most valuable things about being in the mountains.
You will have to make a big effort, so you should be really prepared and trained, both physically and mentally.
Besides, I’ll make a nice video during the ascent and I’ll give it to you at the end.
Please contact me if you want to reach the Summit of America! I will be glad to be your guide there.
