Climb to the top of South America's highest peak, a fantastic achievement and great challenge.
A complete 360 view of Aconcagua, walk up the Vacas Valley and descend via the Normal Route.
Fully qualified, professional, local and bilingual mountain guides who have summited many times, with a ratio of one guide to every 3 to 4 clients.
Plenty of acclimatisation built in to give you the best chance to summit.
Two buffer days in case of poor weather on summit day.
Great food, equipment and briefings - ideal preparation - plus hire extra porters to help lighten your loads.
I did a very enjoyable mountain holiday in Aconcagua. I am one of the five people who reached the summit in our group (we were 16 people in total).
In my opinion, the 360 route is an excellent route for non-technical climbers, the landscape is far more than the normal route. So, the whole ascent can be treated as the highlight, especially from the end of approaching day 2 (when you first see the Mt. Aconcagua) to Camp 3.
The summit day was tough, and the temperature was extremely low (below -30 to -40 celsius is very common including wind chill). You have to insist on, otherwise, you may easily give up.
In Mendoza, the facility of hotel is very good, and reception staff can speak very good English.
We had 4 guides, all of them were very good.
South America is a magic land, it is my fourth time to visit there, but definitely I will go back again and again.

If you are wondering what to eat in Buenos Aires you might wish to consider a tasting menu. Alan was recently in Buenos Aires and this is the account of his personal experience of a a tasting menu evening. He writes: Tasting menu – a lot of small “funny” dishes designed to confuse and challenge your palate. Well, that’s what I have always thought and as such they have never appealed to me. On a recent visit to Buenos Aires I was invited to go to a seven course tasting menu, paired with wine, at Casa Coupage. …
