Full-Day Aconcagua Experience
Get to know Aconcagua as you've always dreamed! Take a 1-hour hike in the paths of Aconcagua Park, impressive views of Aconcagua itself, the Andes Range and the Potrerillos Dam. Breakfast and delicious lunch while surrounded by beautiful mountain landscape is included.
Your tour starts at 8am, when your guide picks up the group from the hotel (the tour only operates with small groups, as you should be comfortable in the vehicle). You'll head Southwest through Road 7, until you get to Potrerillos Dam. There, go to the“Origen de I” coffee shop, with tea, coffee, and local products to relax and enjoy the marvelous view of the “El Plata” mountain range (main water source of Mendoza) and the turquoise Potrerillos lake. Afterwards, you'll move on and keep enjoying this beautiful road, contemplating the unforgettable scenery, while driving through tunnels and bridges, until you arrive at the town of Uspallata.
Once you're back on the road, it's time to start preparing for the highlight of this program: the Aconcagua Provincial Park. The group will get the appropriate permits with the Park Rangers, and start the one-hour hike, which will allow you to experience the majesty of the highest peak in America, its flora, fauna, and beautiful sky.
After enjoying some of the cleanest air in the world, you will drive a few kilometers until you get to “Puente del Inca”, a must-stop on this trip, where you will get to know more about this iconic place, and get the best view of the natural bridge. Then it's time to finally drive back to Mendoza, and stop in “La Juanita”, a beautiful mountain restaurant, to have a delicious lunch, surrounded by the lovely Uspallata town.
