Overview

Aconcagua is the highest mountain in South America, but scaling the mighty 22,841-foot (6,961-meter) peak is a feat best left to the professionals. This full-day tour is the ideal way for less-ambitious hikers to experience the magnificent landscapes of Aconcagua, with a hike through the Aconcagua Park, spectacular views of landmarks such as Potrerillos Dam and Puente del Inca, and a delicious lunch at mountaintop restaurant.

  • Take a guided hike through Aconcagua Park
  • See landmarks including the Puente del Inca Bridge and Potrerillos Dam
  • Hotel pickup, boxed lunch, and round-trip transportation included

Please arrive 1 hour before your selected start time for pickup. Your operator can coordinate exact time and location.

The pick up start from 8.00 am. Pick up for this tour is only from hotels located in Mendoza city area and Chacras de Coria.

Please bear in mind that it takes around 45 minutes from the arranged time to pick up every passenger of the tour. Our tour leader will personally greet you at the lobby
Your tour begins with morning pickup from your central Mendoza hotel, where you’ll meet your guide and small group of no more than 12 people. Soak up the scenery as you head southwest along Road 7, then jump out to admire the views over the Cordon del Plata Range and Potrerillos Dam.

Continue through tunnels and bridges to reach the scenic town of Uspallata. Hop out for a view of the valley before heading along the dramatic mountain roads into the heart of the Aconcagua Provincial Park. After securing your park permits, set out on a 1-hour guided hike in the shadows of the Aconcagua mountain, and enjoy magnificent views of the snow-capped peak and the surrounding Andes mountains range.

Back on the bus, there’s time for one more stop – to admire the Puente del Inca, a natural bridge that swoops over the Vacas River.

After a full day in the mountains, return to Mendoza, where you tour ends with drop-off back at your hotel. A boxed lunch will be included with your trip.

Great tour. Guide was very knowledgeable, friendly, and spoke excellent English. The walking trail at the base of the mountains gave a nice stretch after the bus ride. On the way back we stopped at the Inca Bridge. Fascinating!
