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.

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.

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.

Hello! I have been thoroughly impressed by the service and assistance that explore-share have provided the past couple years in helping to plan my trip to the High Tatras in Poland. I really appreciated the flexibility that they provided in allowing me to rearrange my trip twice owing to covid. They were responsive and communicative throughout. This trip was part of my Stag weekend celebrations and explore-share connected me with an outstanding guide in the form of Marcel - he was an excellent recommendation and we really enjoyed our guided hike in the High Tatras with him. Marcel was an outstanding professional, placed a high focus on preparing well and staying safe, and was also a great guy! Highly recommend. Many thanks and best wishes - Richard

We travel widely and this has by far been the best of experiences. Well done to all concerned. We are already looking at booking another trip!
