ABOUT THIS TREKKING

This three-day trek has a medium level of difficulty. That´s why it´s the best option in order to experience a special contact with the mountain. Nature surprises us with the contrast between the abundant and colourful vegetation and the magnificence of the mountain, where the cold and the altitude plays their part. The services include professional mountain guide, full- board lodging in base camp for two nights in mountain tents, and above all our experience on Aconcagua for over twenty years. Walking through the mountains, glaciers and rivers is unforgettable; especially when at the end of the path the overwhelming Aconcagua awaits us with its impressive South Wall of 3000mts. The sensation at that moment, we cannot tell you, we want you to have the experience yourself. Start walking with us!
