Description

There are a number of amazing mountains to climb in Chile. And on this mesmerizing 26 day adventure, you will get the chance to climb 3 of the nation’s biggest, the Ojos del Salado (6,893m), Tres Cruces Sur (6,750m) and Llullaillaco (6,739m).

Along with those 3 incredible peaks,  you will also get to climb 3 additional peaks for the purpose of acclimatization. Those peaks include the Redondo Colorado (4,180m), Mount Piedra Pomez (4,880m) and the Mulas Muertas north shoulder (5,015m). That’s 6 amazing peaks in the Chilean Andes on one trip!

When embarking on an adventure of this magnitude, it is crucial that participants have the proper climbing experience. It is also imperative that participants are in excellent physical condition. This trip will be arduous and will have difficult moments. However, the rewards you will get in terms of the spellbinding views and the thrilling experience to reach those views will be truly memorable.

Along with the peaks on this trip, you will also get to visit and observe the beauty of the Puna de Atacama plateau. You will get to see the Santa Rosa lake, Laguna Verde, the villages of Caldera and Taltal, and so much more.

Furthermore, to ensure that you reach all of the summits on this trip’s itinerary, there will be several extra days. The purpose of these extra days is to give you some insurance in case of inclement weather, or other unforeseen circumstances.

Are you an adventurer? Then join me on this 26 day adventure to the top of Chile’s highest peaks. Send me a request and enjoy the views from the summits of the Ojos del Salado, Tres Cruces Sur and Llullaillaco.

I also lead a 17 day expedition to the summit of Argentina’s great Pissis mountain as well.

About the guide

I try to do things differently, I do not like boxes. I have lived in the corporate world, in a caravan, working as an au pair, a frustrated travel photographer and a Spanish teacher in Denmark. Travel backpacking from Spain to Vietnam for a year and travel the length of Chile on my mountain bike.

Always in love with travel, I have been working for the outdoor industry since 2008 traveling the world in more than 30 countries. I love to guide and share my experience and mountaineering skills with other lovers of remote and isolated destinations, far from crowded mountaineering centers. When I'm not working or in the mountains you can find me playing the Spanish guitar sitting on the porch of my house sharing the sunset with my lovely girlfriend.

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
