Climb aconcagua

One Step Closer To The Highest Peak In The Americas

For many people, climbing Aconcagua is the culmination of a long-held dream to stand atop one of the very highest points on earth. Reaching 22,834 feet (6,959 meters) in altitude, and first climbed in 1897, Aconcagua continues to defy all expectations as:

  • The Highest Peak in the Americas (North AND South!)
  • The Highest Peak in the Western Hemisphere
  • The Highest Peak in the World outside of the Himlayas
  • The Second Highest of the fabled Seven Summits (only Everest is taller)

A climb and summit attempt of Aconcagua requires months of physical preparation, mental fortitude, and most importantly, having a highly trained Guide with extensive experience of every part of this giant of the Andes. If you aspire to join the most determined climbers in reaching the summit of Aconcagua, then welcome! You're in the right place.

Ameghino Valley

popular

Our most Popular Trip!

Our Aconcagua Ameghino Valley and Upper Guanacos traverse route is, in our opinion, the absolute BEST route on Aconcagua. Scenic and much less crowded than the Normal Route, the Ameghino Valley is by far the most beautiful way to experience an Aconcagua Climb.

The Technical Route!

We approach the Polish Glacier via the Ameghino – Upper Guanacos Valley and then traverse the mountain descending via the Normal Route. If you are signing up for the Polish Glacier Route you need to have previous high altitude experience, and be very familiar with the use of ice axe, crampons, and belaying techniques. Over the years, we have specialized in the Polish Glacier Route, and have guided it successfully many times.
