Would you like to join an 18-day ladies’ only adventure to the summit of the highest mountain in South America? Then follow Poppy on an unforgettable Women’s Aconcagua Expedition and discover the wonders of the Andes!
At 6,960.8 m (22,837 ft), Aconcagua is the highest mountain in the Americas and one of the Seven Summits. Climbing this big friendly Andean giant is a feat that any mountaineering enthusiast must tackle at least once in a lifetime. It is not technically challenging but it is a physically demanding ascent that requires a good fitness level and proper acclimatization.
This 18-day Aconcagua ascent is designed for women. It will be led by EPGAMT certified local guide Poppy who was the first woman to summit Aconcagua in winter and has climbed to the top of this mountain 23 times!
The program will follow an 18-day itinerary via the Normal Route. During the first days, acclimatization treks to Plaza Francia will serve to prepare the group. Then, we’ll trek to Plaza de Mulas while enjoying the beautiful Andean landscapes and start climbing Aconcagua.
Of course, a good fitness level is a must and you can contact us in advance to put you in touch with a trainer if you need a program designed just for you in order to prepare for the ascent. No technical mountaineering skills are required to climb Aconcagua.

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
Stay up-to-date on the best adventures.
