Description

In this 7 days mountaineering program we will go up San Francisco, an impressive 6040 meters volcano in the Northern Andes, in the border between Argentina and Chile.

San Francisco is located in the region of ‘seismiles’ (peaks of over 6000 meters) in the province of Catamarca. From it’s summit you can appreciate other mythical mountains, such as Ojos del Salado, Tres Cruces and Incahuasi.

It is a physically demanding ascent, but it has no technical difficulties. And you’ll enjoy unique landscapes, with mountains full of astonishing colors and snowy peaks. And the region has written all over it it’s past, when it was part of the Inca Empire more than 500 years ago.

About the guide

guide profile img

EPGAMT Mountain guide from Argentina.

The mountain is my workplace and space to enjoy what I like to do ... mountaineering.

I climbedd and promoted various mountains and volcanoes such as: Aconcagua , Ojos del Salado, Pissis , Walter Penck , Incahuasi, Plata, Rincon, Vallecitos , etc.

The mountain can find oneself, to rediscover the essence and every moment. It is a natural place that transmits balance, harmony, tranquility and at the same time, tests us and motivates us to self-improvement. The mountain is accessible to all, just enough to take the first step ... we offer a different experience to share.
