    Let’s climb Ojos del Salado, the highest volcano in the world!

    It’s a honor for me to lead this climbing expedition up to the summit of the Ojos del Salado volcano. It is a really exciting program that will take us across the Bahía Inglesa (Copiapó, Chile).

    As you may know, Copiapó is a Chilean plateau where you’ll find the highest number of peaks of more than 6000 m of the planet. And of course, among those impressive and giant volcanoes, the Ojos del Salado stands out. In addition, this climbing trip will make you conquer the heart of the Atacama Desert by foot.

    Let me tell you that it is a demanding program. Although the mountains are technically easy, the altitude and climatic conditions make the ascents quite hard. So, a strong fitness level will be mandatory.

    As for the itinerary, our starting (and ending) point will be Copiapó. From there, we will drive in direction to the high plateau. Before arriving, we will pass by amazing salt flats and campsites next to crystalline lakes.

    Then, you will have the chance of climbing the Copiapo volcano (6052 m), the first of the 2 peaks we’ll conquer during this program. This ascent will work perfectly as an acclimatization before the biggest goal.

    Finally, we’ll move towards the Ojos del Salado volcano. In order to get ready for the summit day, we will spend some days in the mountains. And once at the Ojos del Salado summit, you won’t believe such a 360º viewpoint!

    I can take with me a group of at least 4 people with a maximum of 12. I have some open groups you can join if you are on your own. On the contrary, I also offer private groups (contact me for rates information). Departures dates are from November till March.

    Contact me now for further information or if you want to make a reservation for next departures. I will be here, waiting for you and ready to guide you up to the Ojos del Salado summit.
