Not specified

3 Days

Jan, Feb, Mar, Nov, Dec


Aconcagua give us the opportunity to explore it by two different trails. Here you have the both options before you decide which experience is suitable for you.


It is a 3-day expedition hiking around the Rio Horcones Superior Valley until we get to Plaza Francia, where we find the famous southern rocky wall of Aconcagua. They are 3.000 meters of vertical steep and once up there, an amazing viewpoint will be waiting for you.


It is a longer trail where we add the visit at Plaza de Mulas, our base camp from where we will start all the hike up expeditions to Aconcagua Mountain.

Keep reading the details of the program.


We will be transferred to the entrance of Aconcagua National Park.


The weight of your backpacks will be of 10/12 kg. It contains personal equipment, some food and parts of the tents.


The campsites are in high places, such as Plaza de Mulas at 4.200 meters. It is a good opportunity for those who want know how the body works in the altitude.


During the short trekking you won’t feel any effect due to the altitude, may a headache or insomnia but anything else. The Southern wall of the Aconcagua is one of the wildest an most amazing landscapes of Cordillera de los Andes. From there you can really understand the dimension of the nature in relation with the human being.

If you are already decided, you have to contact me. This mountain is waiting for you and so I am, ready to be your guide!

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.



Easy to set up and find the perfect trip. Informative site that is easy to use. Guides are all great to work with and communicate all arrangements needed. As simple as can be!



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.
