My fiance and i took a private hiking tour with Andes Expeditions and it was was a highlight of our October visit to Argentina. Our guide, Eduardo, spoiled us rotten. He drove us to the trail, more than an hour away. He carried most of our stuff (and provided the needed jackets and equipment), on a beautiful 4 hour hike up a trail that started at 9000 feet and got us to almost 12,000, with higher, exquisite snowy peaks surrounding us. That's where he then laid out a fabulous picnic lunch of sandwiches, fruit and cheeses with a little wine to wash it down (we're in Mendoza after all). Note: he made us drink a ton of water during the hike to prevent altitude sickness. These guys are a little pricier than the group hikes, but its worth it. They're professional, experienced, they've hiked all of the major peaks of the Andes, and they're wonderful warm people who truly enjoy showing newcomers the take-your-breath-away beauty of this mountainous region.
