Domuyo Volcano 6-Day Guided Ascent

Domuyo Volcano

Tomas, a EPGAMT certified mountain guide and member of the AAGM, wants to take you on a 6-day expedition to the peak of the breathtaking Domuyo Volcano.

Not specified

Andes

6 Days

Jan, Feb, Mar, Apr, Oct, Nov, Dec


Description

Join me on a 6-day expedition to the peak of the Domuyo Volcano (4,709m).

Located in the province of Neuquen, the Domuyo Volcano is the highest mountain in Patagonia. Thus earning the name, Roof of Patagonia. Because of the vast volcanic landscape, you will see hot springs. You will see geysers. You will even see glaciers.

This adventure will be a great introduction to high altitude climbing. It will also be a challenge. But like any challenge, the harder it is, the greater the reward. And at the peak of the Domuyo Volcano, the reward is incredible.

The expedition will begin in Andacollo. From there we will proceed to the Punta de Camino, where the ascent starts. After that it's on to Camps 1 and 2 before reaching the peak of the volcano. After basking in the glory of the summit, we will make our way back down to the Punta De Camino, before returning to Andacollo.

Few things in the world can exceed the beauty and wonder of a volcano. The Domuyo Volcano is no exception. Its altitude may intimidate you, but the prizes offered at the top will truly stimulate you. So come with me. Let me safely guide you to the top of Patagonia's roof.

I will be waiting for your message.

And if you are interested in another expedition up another one of the country's beautiful volcanoes, you can also join me on this trip.

About the guide

Mountain Guide - EPGAMT - Argentina
I was born in Patagonia, Argentina and formed at an early age as a climber in the Nahuel Huapi National Park. Currently I completed a large number of rock and ice climbing routes, backcountry skiing and ascents in many mountains around the world such as Mt. Lhotse (8.516 mts.), the 4th highest peak in the world, without using supplemental oxygen (May, 2012).
I'm a certified Mountain Guide from the EPGAMT and a member of the Argentinian Mountain Guides Association (AAGM) and work on Mt. Aconcagua, which I had repeatedly ascended, as well as in other peaks in the Central Andes, Patagonia, Chile, Peru, Bolivia and in The Himalayas in Nepal.
During the winter season, I practice backcountry skiing, mostly on the volcanoes in Patagonia, where I can offer you different adventures, according to your level (beginner, learner or advanced learner).
I feel very privileged to work as a mountain guide, to do the job that I love, and to be able to share it with people that have the same passion.
Join my expeditions and I will provide you a high standard of safety and personal attention!

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

Our first time with Explore-Share. An absolutely fantastic experience from start to finish. Extremely good value, very well organised with attention to detail. We travel widely and this has by far been the best of experiences. Well done to all concerned. We are already looking at booking another trip!
