Aconcagua Logistics-Only Expedition Itinerary

If you've been wanting to go to Aconcagua, but have been scared away by high prices, this is the trip for you.

If you've been wanting to test your own organizational and team skills in a high altitude foreign expedition, this is the trip for you.

If you are strong, fit, and have your own gear, this is the trip for you.

With this logistics-only option, you still get the benefits of the full support trip down low, but once you leave base camp at Plaza de Mulas, you're able to climb this mountain on your own. You can truly say that you earned it.
