OJOS DEL SALADO
Are you ready for an extreme mountain?
At the highest point of 6.893 meters above sea level, the Ojos del Salado is the highest volcano in the world, and the second highest peak of America, after Aconcagua.
We operate high mountain expeditions of different durations, specially designed and planned according to the needs of each mountaineer, contemplating acclimatization times and the required security.
Ask about the program and we design it your way!
Conditions on the mountain tend to be very dry due to the influence of the nearby Atacama Desert. Despite this, it can snow at any time and it can be very windy on the day of the summit attempt.
Ojos del Salado is a little technical mountain, but it requires great physical demand due to the height.
Argentina Trails stands out for having more than 17 years of experience operating expeditions on this mountain and others around the region, where our qualified and certified guides will offer you a high quality experience, providing security and support.
We prioritize the safety of our clients, so we count with experience and the best infrastructure, first aid kits, satellite communication systems and mountain equipment suited to the requirements of each expedition. We take care of every detail so that you can make the most of each expedition safely.
Our expeditions are focused on the client. That is why we design each one according to the needs of each mountaineer, planning an appropiate acclimatization.
