    Can't Miss Tour!
    We had a wonderful tour and Andrea was a fabulous guide. The Andes are well worth the trip . . . spectacular views unlike any we have seen before. The lunch stop was also top notch. We give this tour our highest recommendation!

    Like nothing I’ve ever seen…
    Oh my goodness. I was thinking… 3 hour drive from Mendoza. Then 2 hour hike, and 3 hours to return. Too much driving, right?! Wrong!!! Once you are about 45 minutes out of Mendoza, you are in for an incredible experience. The views are unlike any thing I’ve ever seen. Once you arrive (bring a coat!), you are in for a truly spiritual experience. Take the walk… take your time… consider all that you see and it’s reflection of an amazing Artist. Sing a song. Reflect on poetry. You’re in a magical place. Then enjoy the return journey. You will see multitudes of colors and sites. Maybe hire a driver, so you can focus the beauty around you.

    Best drive of my life
    IF you have the chance, do it! One of the best drives of my life, Mendoza to Aconcagua and back. It is easily done in one day if you start early(ish). The views, the drive and the shear experience of being in the Andes, seeing the highest peak, is mindblowing. Just go ahead and do it!

We arrived around 13:00 o clock following a plan made roughly nine months ago. We took a plane from Buenos Aires to Mendoza very early in the morning, then a ride directly from the airport and finally we arrived to our well planned in advance destination.
We wanted to do a full day trek to Confluencia, which is the first camp, only 3 hours away from the entrance to the park. To out total surprise the only option we had of visiting anything inside the Aconcagua Park, was a short 45 minutes walk to the Laguna and the suspended bridge. Apparently if you want to visit anything else, you have to enter the park between 8 and 11 in the morning. The only way to do this is it come directly from Mendoza and leave as early as 5 in the morning in order to make it.
Maybe the problem comes from the fact that the park closes at 6PM but that is not such a big surprise if you consider that most activity in Mendoza comes to a complete stop between 12 and 17 hours. In the summer months the sun shines until 9PM so you may wander why it would close up so early...
Anyhow, we read a few blogs before coming there and none of them mentioned this tight 8-11 AM schedule. The lady employee also had a crappy attitude saying we should of read that info on the official site but to be honest such a site is hard to find, unless you use for search those exact words: Aconcagua official site...

No doubt it's a beautiful trekking path to make. Just for your information, in February 2020, for one foreigner visitor, one day, the trekking pass costs 1500 AR$.

If you really enjoy trekking, worth it. We (male, 27 and 29, no particular training) made the round-trip to Confluenzia in 4 hours and 30 minutes, including photos and lunch break. About 450m D+. Difficulty : easy to moderate.

One more piece of advice : take something to cover your mouth and nose, the place can get windy, ground is kind of dusty, and you might encounter da rude sandstorm.

Climbing the highest mountain of the Americas has been an amazing experience! The start of the trek is already at around 3000 meters where you have beautiful vistas of the Andes, so even if you do not want to go all the way to 6962 meters, you can still do amazing treks around the base of Aconcagua. Helping me achieve my dream of climbing Aconcagua has been AMG (Aconcagua Mountain Guides). They really go above and beyond for you to have an experience of a life time! Apart from expeditions to the summit, they also cater for shorter treks to the base camps, where you have beautiful views of Aconcagua and the surrounding area. So, I would definitely recommend going to Aconcagua National Parc using AMG either for a trek or an expedition!

We don't usually get guides/drivers, but this is a long drive, and a good driver is worth it. Several sites to see on the way up, good places for an inexpensive lunch. Color on the iron oxide mountains are just beautiful! And the square rock faces on the left on the way up are interesting. Inca ruins right off the road. Hike to the lagoon t the top takes maybe 20 min but we are fast walkers. Hope for a clear day!!

Amazing. The weather was great. There are a variety of hikes from 1.5 hours to 11 hours (return). Something for everyone. The short trail is easily hike-able by almost anyone.
BEWARE: If you go on your own, make sure you find out how to register in advance, ESPECIALLY if you don't speak Spanish. Luckily our driver was able to get our entrance tickets for us. (See review of Blue Valley Mendoza Tours for a review of an awesome tour guide) The mountains are stunning and the trails well maintained.

If one is visiting Mendoza for the wineries, then try to take a break with a visit to Aconcagua. You will not be disappointed. Yes, it is a long drive, but one that is scenic, beautiful vistas, and close to 3hrs to the foot of the Andes, it is well worth it.
We were in Mendoza for 3 days, the 1st day visiting the wineries, 2nd to Aconcagua, and 3rd day back to visiting the wineries.

Once you get to the park, the altitude is around 3000 meters, and one can take an approx hour long trek, just at the foothills - was breathtaking, we were not seasoned enough to to trek to the Base Camp. It is well worth a visit for the scenery.
On the return journey back to Mendoza, we stopped to visit the Hanging Bridge, we were Wowwed, simply beautiful!!!.

What a beautiful mountain that you can only see once you are right in front of it! It’s only 60-90 min drive from Mendoza on a easy and nice paved road, so it should be a must to visit. There is an easy walk that loops to the lookout point. The entire loop can be done in 30 min or less but more if you are stopping at every turn to take pictures. Highly recommended.

Although there were a few too many people, walking along the paths in this park are amazing. The views are beautiful. Be prepared to walk slowly because of the Altitude. It is best to go with a guide from Mendoza since the ismgar along a challenging highly. Not to be missed.
