Aconcagua Scheduled Expeditions

The majestic Mt Aconcagua, the highest peak in South America, attracts mountaineers and adventurers from around the world in search of challenges and breathtaking landscapes. For those who wish to conquer this imposing mountain, there are two expedition modalities we offer: joining a scheduled expedition or hiring a private expedition.

What these expeditions have in common, unlike a solo expedition, is that they are GUIDED EXPEDITIONS, meaning they are led by professional guides specialized in Aconcagua.

Although both offer the opportunity to reach the summit, they differ significantly in several key aspects.

Scheduled Expedition to Aconcagua:

In a scheduled expedition, participants join a group of strangers, each with their own background, level of experience, and motivations. These expeditions are usually organized on specific dates for the ascent of Aconcagua and open registration to the general public.

Here are some characteristics of this type of expedition:

Diverse group: One of the main features of a scheduled expedition is the diversity of its group. Participants may come from different countries, adding an element of cultural enrichment and opportunities to build relationships with mountaineers from around the world.

Shared costs: By joining a scheduled expedition, costs are usually shared among participants, resulting in a more economical option compared to a private expedition.

Pre-set services: The services provided are pre-set and the same for all expedition members, including experienced guides, transportation logistics, accommodation at base camps, and other logistical services necessary for the ascent.

Private Expedition to Aconcagua:

On the other hand, a private expedition offers a more personalized and exclusive experience, designed specifically for a group or individual. Here are some key characteristics of this type of expedition:

Customization: A private expedition allows for greater flexibility and customization in terms of dates, ascent route, services offered, and the level of personalized attention from guides.

Cohesive group: By traveling with a pre-formed group, whether friends, family, or colleagues, you can enjoy greater cohesion and teamwork, which can positively influence the success of the expedition.

Higher costs: Although a private expedition offers numerous advantages in terms of customization and exclusive attention, it often involves higher costs due to cost sharing based on the number of participants and logistics tailored to the group’s needs.

In summary, both scheduled and private expeditions offer the exciting opportunity to conquer Cerro Aconcagua, each with its own characteristics and advantages. The choice between them will depend on the budget, personal preferences, and specific goals of each individual or group of mountaineers.
