Sitting down and enjoying a delicious meal while watching a roseate sunset at Aconcagua’s Berlin High Camp after a challenging day of climbing—It may not be for everyone, but for those who cherish the outdoors and love the rush of exercise-induced endorphins surging through their tired muscles, it is heaven. Aconcagua is known for being temperamental, but with a little patience, a little perseverance and a little luck, it is an incredibly exciting adventure!
As one of the 7 summits, Aconcagua is the highest in South America. In fact, it is the highest mountain in both the Southern and Western hemispheres. Standing at a breathtaking 22,841ft/6,962m, the glaciated peak of Aconcagua is a physical and mental challenge well-worth the effort. Trip highlights include hiking along the crest of the Andes as we acclimatize in Penitentes, basking in the sun with a cerveza at Plaza de Mulas Base Camp, slowly climbing over two weeks to the summit of South America, sharing stories with climbers from around the world and relaxing in Argentina’s wine country post-climb. This expedition is an invaluable preparation climb for those with Everest aspirations.
While sipping wine in Mendoza is a great contrast to the dusty days of climbing, Berg Adventures strives to offer maximum comfort and “luxury” on the mountain. Our fantastic cook creates delicious meals ranging from Argentine dishes to North American comfort foods using fresh ingredients. Don’t be surprised if you find yourself eating crispy tacos or creamy cheesecake high on the mountain. The attentive and skilled guides, will encourage you, inspire you and keep you safe.
