Aconcagua Expedition a travel to climb the Aconcagua, also called the Stone Sentinel. An expedition guided by the best local guides. The Aconcagua, 6,962 meters high above sea level, is the highest peak in Argentina and the American continent and it is included in the Seven Summits.
Our Aconcagua Expedition will give you the opportunity to try to get to the top with one of the most experienced guides in the Andes. In addition we give you the opportunity to receive advice to prepare this challenge during the previous months to try to arrive in an optimal state for ascension.
Technically the Aconcagua expedition has no big difficulties, although the altitude will not make it easy, since the oxygen level can be compared to a mountain of eight thousand meters at the top.
