About Andes Wind
I founded Andes Wind in 2001 with the idea to specialize me in day trips at the Central Andes range near to Santiago de Chile city. Looking for a route that differentiated of the traditional offer, is born the tour to the Aconagua Natural Reserve in the Mendoza province, Argentina, being until today one of the less known tours but more surprising by his natural beauty and by the attraction that generates to know the highest mountain of all America. My philosophy always has been to work with small groups, of no more than ten people, what allows to know us more, adapt to the each one needs and be more felxible so that each tour turn into an unforgettable experience.

Hi, we can do this tour in winter too but we need to check the weather and road conditions. Sometimes we can confirm a few days in advance, sometimes 12 hours before the trip.
