More Info

Located in southern South America, Argentina is a large and diverse country, with many different landscapes and climates. The high mountains of the Andes are in stark contrast with the endless plains in the center of the country. The remoteness of Patagonia seems a world away from busy Buenos Aires. Famous for its high-quality red meat, make sure you fit an asado (bbq) into your visit. A short stay in Mendoza, well-known for its Malbec, could also be a good option for wine lovers.

 

 

Good to Know

 

What’s the weather like?

It gets colder as you move south. Expect scorchingly hot summers in the north and an agreeable temperature in Patagonia (although nights can get cold). During the winter, below zero temperatures are common in Patagonia.

How to get there?

You will probably fly into Buenos Aires. If you are planning on visiting Patagonia, you will probably want to fly to Bariloche, Calafate or Ushuaia, depending on what your goals are. For Aconcagua, fly into Mendoza.

We had a great time!
Merlin was a fabulous guide! Not only is he a super accomplished climber, but he is also personable and
fun to spend the day with. We have some climbing experience, and Merlin selected sport climbing that was a fun challenge for our skill level. We 100% recommend him as a guide.
Great experience, merlin is a climbing guru!
We wish we could have Simon as our guide on every trek we do. His mountaineering experience and extensive knowledge
of the area was impressive and definitely enhanced the trek for us. On top of this, we got along great with Simon and appreciate his easy going personality and sense of humor. We will definitely request Simon as our guide for the next hike we do from El Chalten!
Christopher Smyth for Huemul Circuit Trekking, El Chaltén
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.
Recientemente fui guiado en el circuito de Cerro Huemul por Luis, quien era un guía muy experimentado, experto y profesional.
Ayudó con los 2 cruces de tirolesa, la parte de la caminata que requería caminar sobre el glaciar, y significó que nunca tuve dudas sobre dónde llevaba el sendero. Merlin organizó a la perfección toda la comida, el equipo y la transferencia de retorno desde el final del camino. Debido a que toda la experiencia transcurrió tan bien, y Luis hizo que mi caminata fuera tan cómoda y agradable, definitivamente recomendaría esta compañía. El sendero en sí era hermoso, con muchas vistas impresionantes y estoy muy contento de haberlo experimentado. Entre los puntos destacados se encuentran los Campos de Hielo de la Patagonia Sur después de escalar sobre Windy Pass, así como los cóndores al otro lado del paso Huemul y las vistas desde el último campamento.
Merlin was an exceptional guide – safety first & lots of instruction. Climbed about 10 sport routes with him from
5.8 to 5.9. The rock was great, route choices great! What could be better than rock climbing with Fitz Roy looming in the background! Merlin’s professionalism added to the experience. Oh & he will take you to eat lunch at the best empanadas in town 🙂 I will return to Chaltén & Merlin has earned my trust to go into the big mountains and do a multi day ascent!
Juan was very informative and offered a well-rounded trip; would definitely do it again!
Taylor Luttrell-Williams for Snowshoeing day in Bariloche, Patagonia
I thoroughly enjoyed my trip with Luciana! She is a great, knowledgeable guide with decades of experience. I felt extremely
comfortable with her and she easily adapted the trip based on my experience level. Highly recommend!
I’m writing this short review as I’m often asked by climbing friends who shall I climb with on Aconcagua? Let me
tell you !hand on my heart INKA is the best on the mountain.! I have climbed across the globe Alaska, Andes, Himalaya and in the Karakoram in Pakistan. I have have utilised INKA on two occasions and I believe they have the best knowledge and logistics on the mountain. Their staff care about YOU.. as you are their number one priority. They will ensure your time on the mountain is safe and you return safe even if you don’t reach the summit. So many times I have watched operators in other countries guiding clients to the summit when they should have been turned around, this has been with drastic results. That is why I always use professional companies and word of mouth . Trust me INKA are the best. Aconcagua is a tough challenge high altitudes coupled by sometimes extreme cold , require you to be fit mentally and physically. I have in the past fell to AMS and had to turn around near a summit, that is the smart thing to do.! Better to go home and re plan , the mountain will always be there. I’ve lost friends on mountains and speak from experience. INKA guides are registered and highly experienced, they will watch you carefully and monitor your oxygen levels and general well being throughout your climb. There is an excellent set up at Plaza de Mulas where if you need a rest day you will be cared for. Many of my friends have used INKA and I will continue to recommend them for their expertise I’m writing this short review as I’m often asked by climbing friends who shall I climb with on Aconcagua?

the infrastructure supporting the expedition is perfect and the team very professional. Really Aconcagua Specialists!!
Ricardo Santucci for Climbing Mount Aconcagua, 18 days
The guide was not Sebastian Tetilla but Javier Guiterez and Matias Hidalgo Nicosia
Jens Hauge Andersen for Climbing Mount Aconcagua, 18 days
They totally rock! They made everything to be perfect. Best in town if you are thinking about Aconcagua. Professionals, they
are passionate about what they do. Long story short: contact them and let the game begin!
Alejandra Bazzi for Climbing Mount Aconcagua, 18 days
Gaston Oyarzun is obviously an excellent climber/mountaineer, but he lacks a great deal of organization/logistics. This applies to all aspects
of the expedition, from food to itinerary.
Nicholas Francoeur for Expedition to Mount Aconcagua, 6962 m
Everything about the experience was perfect – Sebastian was an amazing guide, the trek was incredible and every detail from
the food to the equipment could not have been better. Absolutely unforgettable experience.
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.
Great and lovely people !! Everything was very professional. We had a great time in our treeking. We hope see you
soon. Special tks to Fer Palacio and Ariel. Abraços do Brasil!!
