Join Alpine Guides on Aconcagua. At 6,960 metres Aconcagua is the highest peak in both the Western and Southern Hemispheres. While probably the most technically straight-forward of the Seven Summits, Aconcagua is a challenge to the strongest mountaineer's fitness and stamina.
Aconcagua Ex-Mendoza, Argentina
Expedition dates - 01-20 February 2018
Our expedition begins and ends in the beautiful city of Mendoza, Argentina.
The approach to the peak is done a conservative pace, with multiple forays to higher altitudes. This gives time for most people to acclimate, and prepare for a summit bid - with multiple summit day opportunities.
Our exit route traverses the peak (up and over), allowing for a quicker exit to Mendoza using the Horcones Valley.
For Kiwis and Aussies
Our expedition is designed for Kiwi and Australian clientele.
We have to fly our guide to Argentina, and work on logistics from a distance. This is why the cost is higher than a ticket with a US, or Argentine guiding company.
However, you get the benefits and assurances of travelling with a professional guide from a trusted Antipodean guiding company. We speak your 'language', but know the Argentine support crew intimately and have the depth of local knowledge to run a successful mission on the mountain.
Alpine Guides and Grajales Expeditions
As well as one or 2 AGL guides in your party, we are fully supported by local guiding operator Grajales Expeditions. Grajales Expeditions has been leading and supporting Aconcagua missions since 1976.
