Aconcagua Course & Ascent

Add Ons

Porter Support

Many of our climbers elect to use porter support for all or part of their Aconcagua expedition.  There is the option to use porter support for only certain phases of the expedition, for example many of our climbers elect to have porter support on the move day to Camp 1 as this is one of the heaviest load carrying days,  or just rid yourself of a few kilos to make your own pack weight more reasonable throughout

We include some porter support already for carries of the expedition group gear, but the pack weights of up to 25kg are still realistic for the remainder of the loads to be carried by members.

Porters can usually be organised from Base Camp but if you would like to organise this service in advance please contact our office.

Polish Glacier Ascent

The Polish Glacier climb is a long and committing ascent at high altitude which is much coveted but rarely climbed! Adventure Consultants have established a strategy for focused and qualified climbers who are serious about the ascent allowing for the best possible opportunity to climb the route. If this sounds like you, please enquire with our office.

Upgrade to Luxury Accommodation in Mendoza

Mendoza has a wealth of accommodation options and on our standard Aconcagua departure, we stay a mid-range hotel but if you feel you would like to upgrade, we can assist with booking alternative hotels.

Cerro El Plomo

For those with extra time and/or the requirement to acclimatise prior to the Aconcagua climb, this is an achievable 10 day trip, ex Santiago, which is led by one of our South American guides.  A great way to acclimatise and enjoy the South American culture all in one go.
