Earth’s Edge’s Aconcagua Expedition takes you to this towering peak of 6,962m at the heart of the Andes. Aconcagua is the highest mountain in both the Western and Southern hemispheres.
Although Aconcagua is considered a trekking peak and no technical mountaineering is required to reach it’s summit, it is far from easy. The complexities of proper acclimatisation, high winds, extreme cold and a long summit day make Aconcagua expeditions a formidable challenge. Our 22 day itinerary allows for proper acclimatisation and has the flexibility to accommodate bad weather, maximising your chances of reaching the summit.
The entire route is stunningly beautiful, with the views from Camp two and three simply breath-taking. The area also has some amazing wildlife with puma, condor, mora eagle and a wild variety of other bird life found in Mt Aconcagua Provincial Park. We fly in and out of the beautiful city of Mendoza, home of Argentina’s famous malbec grapes and some amazing cuisine.
