14 Days

Jan, Feb, Apr, May, Nov, Dec




The highest mountain in all of Chile, and only 70 meters shorter than Aconcagua, the Ojos del Salado peak (6,893m) is incredible. And for 14 days, I would like to guide you to the summit of this amazing peak.

In order to climb the Ojos del Salado, proper acclimatization is essential. As a result, you will be climbing 4 amazing peaks before the big climb. Those 4 peaks are the Redondo Colorado (4,180m), Mount Piedra Pomez (4,880m), the Mulas Muertas north shoulder and Mount San Francisco (6,045m). Each one of these climbs is exciting and offers some fantastic views of the Chilean Andes.

The trip will begin at the Copiapo airport, where we will pick you up and transfer you to the beautiful village of Caldera. In the village you will get to enjoy some local cuisine, while spending time with its wonderful inhabitants. After that, we will make our way to Santa Rosa Lake (3,700m). From there, we will spend the next few days enjoying our acclimatization climbs. During the climbs, you will be staying at a campsite at Rio Lamas as well as the Murray Hut.

The next portion of the trip will have us going to the Ojos del Salado base camp, where we will spend a few days before making our way to the incredible summit. After the summit climb, we will return to Caldera, and the following day you will take a transfer to the Copiapo airport.

Scaling a mountain with the magnitude of the Ojos del Salado is an amazing opportunity. And for 14 days, I would like to make that opportunity a reality. So if you have some prior experience and are in good physical condition, send me a request, and let the adventure begin!
