We offer the logistics and support you need for your ascent to the summit of this mythical mountain in the Andes, starting from Mendoza, Argentina.

Our company, Inka Expediciones, facilitates the organization of logistics services providing a package that covers all your needs. We have prepared a very convenient set of services for self-leaded expeditions, making the logistic arrangements for you, offering you the advantage of having complete control over your trip without having to worry about the “administrative headache” of organizing an expedition.

This means your time prior to the expedition’s departure is free, allowing you to concentrate on other things, such as raising sponsorship or simply keeping busy at work.

Our services include all the transportation, according to the schedule for the group in private vehicles; accommodation in hotels in the city and full board service in our base camps, with professional chefs,  dining domes with tables and chairs, dishes, electric lights and wooden floors.

Our chefs personally take care for all the meals to be nutritional and high in energy for your journey to the summit. As we have our own mule transport we can guarantee fresh meals because we provide daily bread, meat, eggs, fruit and vegetables. By enjoying our meals in the approaching camps you will avoid the extra weight needed to transport on the mules and also you won’t be cooking so you can take time to relax on the way to base camp. We guarantee excellent meal service!

We also offer constant communication through VHF, UHF radios, satellite and telephones; mules to carry your equipment (30 kg/person); dining tents and WC; medical equipment and assistance to get the Aconcagua Provincial Park entrance permits and facility for the storage and care of equipment.  You can check the details below.

What people are saying about Inka



Fue una hermosa experiencia de la cual guardaré bellos recuerdos y lazos. Al recordar volveré a viajar a las montañas de la Cordillera amada. Gracias por brindarme seguridad y confort en la realización de mis sueños.



It was a true life experience. I enjoy every moment of it. Our guides were excellent and inka facilities for this journey were up to par with what I expected.



The expedition was great. Andy was a great guide who was very attentive to all the climbers and was constantly checking how we were feeling both physically and emotionally. He was always focused on one objective, to get us all to the summit and back down safely. In this regard he would always go the extra mile! Andy is the best guide i have climbed with by far and all guides should be as professional and attentive as him. The food was fine for a non meat eater but there is only so much cheese someone can eat no matter how well it is served:grinning: The huts and tents were all good. The mountain was hard, the summit was harder! I was totally exhausted but felt great after the summit. The Hotel was good with a nice pool and Mendoza was a really nice place to be with very nice people. All in all a great trip with a great group of climbers and two of the best guides. Would I recommend this trip? simple answer is..... Hell yeahh!!



Just one thing; Ivan don't understand my need in base camp when I ask for a single tent at this place. I think with a single tent that was more easy for me to sleep. But In generally Ivan and Juan Pedro are good boys. It's diificult for me to rate Guide and Trip. I didn't finished. I can rate only for the half trip.



The guide was not Sebastian Tetilla but Javier Guiterez and Matias Hidalgo Nicosia
