Do you want to discover the beauty of Aconcagua? Then follow me on this full-day trek to Confluencia!
Aconcagua (6960m) is one of the most famous mountains in the world. Part of the Andes, this impressive peak is the highest in America and the second highest of the Seven Summits. Located in Argentina, 112 km northwest of the city of Mendoza, it is protected by the Aconcagua Provincial Park.
On this short and classic trek, we will reach Confluencia, the first acclimatization base camp of Aconcagua. After meeting in Mendoza City, I will drive you to the park entrance. Our hiking adventure will begin at Horcones Valley and cross breathtaking spots such as Puente del Inca.
The trails are easy to follow, so you don’t need to be an expert hiker. However, a good fitness level is required, due to the effects of high altitudes. Of course, I will be there to help and guide you on your way.
So, if you want to explore the awesome Aconcagua Park, please contact me. Let’s hike to Confluencia together and enjoy amazing views of a unique landscape!
Additionally, I can also take you to Plaza Francia, another popular spot in the area. Check it out here.
Meeting in Mendoza City. Equipment check. Transfer to Aconcagua Provincial Park (Horcones, 2950m). Trekking to Horcones Lagoon or Quebrada del Durazno. Lunch. Hike from Confluencia to Horcones. Return to Mendoza
Return: 20hs. 21PM
Hiking time: 4 / 6 hours

I had a very good experience booking the hike through Explore-Share. Communication with the team was prompt and clear and the booking process was seamless. The trip itself was also just perfect. Uroš was a fantastic guide, highly skilled and talented. The hike felt safe at all times, even on more exposed routes, thanks to him. He was always up to date on the weather forecast and planned the days around it, checked the conditions on the route ahead of me, if needed, discussed and adapted the routes to my level and always made sure I was safe and comfortable. I highly recommend him, as well as Explore-Share.

Explore Share is a really usefull website that has a great overview of reviewed guides for a (in our case) hiking/climbing trip. During the booking I got assigned an assistent for Explore Share that helped solve questions that I might have. Great customer service, and I will come back again.

Guide was very experienced and very patient with us. We learned a lot and he tried to fit in all the knowledge he could in one day, super awesome. A little tough going back and forth to get the trip set up hard to tell if the site is sketchy until you see reviews but all worked out. Ended up with an awesome day with an awesome guide. Overall pretty satisfied and thankful!

It's the 2nd time we have been booking with Explore-Share. The booking was super easy and both Explore-Share and the guide were fast in their responses. We did rafting as a family with 3 kids for the first time in Slovenia. The guide (José) was super nice. He was doing everything he could to make everyone at ease with rafting (he gave clear explanations), have a great team spirit (we were joined by 2 other girls) and have a good time. We had lots of fun and the nature there is so beautiful. Thank you Explore-share and Soca splash for the great afternoon! I would recommend this activity to anyone without a doubt. My kids immediately told me they want to do rafting again soon !"
