WHAT PEOPLE SAY
Based on 1 reviews
Between Copiapó (Chile) and Fiambalá (Argentina) lies the highest active volcano in the world, at 6893 m. It is called ‘Ojos del Salado’ which means ‘Eyes of the Salty One’ and refers to the ample deposits of salt that cover its glaciers.
Ojos del Salado is surrounded by mountains, salt fields, thermal waters and a charming green lagoon. The ascent to its summit it is usually a hike, but the final section could require scrambling and might need the use of ropes.
This beautiful and popular spot among mountaineers is the place for my 15-day program. It will start in the city of Mendoza at 7 AM. We will spend the days ascending and admiring the dry surroundings of the volcano. At night, we will camp under a sky full of stars, until we will reach the impressive summit at almost 6900 m.
Because of its high altitude and because it requires technical abilities towards the end, you need to be in good physical condition and have prior experience in mountaineering to sign up.
If you want to discover every inch of the tallest active volcano and admire the world around it, book this trip!
You can also visit Cajón de los Arenales, in Mendoza, and spend a full day climbing.

I love the mountain, and all its sports. It is a place where one can find peace and know in depth. It's my ground wire when I need quiet and silence. I started working as a guide and porter in 2006, I have been working and enjoying the beauty of the mountain for many years.

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.
