Climb Aconcagua with Alpine Guides. 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 mountaineers' fitness and stamina.
Aconcagua Ex-Mendoza, Argentina
Expedition dates - 25 January 2019 - 13 February 2019
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. 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.
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.
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.
