Description

Let me take you on an expedition to the top of the Maipo Volcano (5,323m).

Located in the Central Andes. It is close to the city of Mendoza.

Fire and water come together in an incredible vision at the peak of this beautiful volcano. From the perfect cone, you will be able to see the Maipo Volcano’s reflection in a mirror of turquoise water that is the Laguna Diamante.

In yet another example of nature’s ability to paint a dazzling picture, I promise you that this image will stay with you forever.

We will undergo the 5-day trek that will both challenge and thrill you. Starting in Mendoza, we will go to the base camp at Laguna Del Diamante. After that we will make our way through two different camps on our way to the top of the volcano.

While a challenging, rigorous expedition, scaling the Maipo Volcano will be well worth it. I will guide you safely to the summit, where just like you, I will marvel at the beauty.

There is something magical about volcanoes, something primal, something forbidden. Hence the incredible feeling you will have after reaching the peak. So allow me to guide you to that peak and guide you to that feeling. Join me me on this unforgettable journey up the Maipo Volcano.

I will be waiting for your message.

Also, if you have a love for volcanoes, and find yourself in my native Patagonia, join me on this trip.

About the guide

guide profile img

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!
