Maipo Volcano 5-Day Guided Expedition

Maipo Volcano 1
Maipo Volcano 2

Tomas, a EPGAMT certified mountain guide and AAGM member, wants to guide you on an unforgettable 5-Day expedition up the amazing Maipo Volcano.


5 Days

Jan - Mar, Nov, Dec


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

Mountain 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.



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.
