About the Benegas Brothers

Benegas Brothers Expeditions was founded in 1992 by twin brothers Damian and Guillermo (Willie) Benegas. Their curiosity for climbing was sparked by their father, Rafael Benegas, who during long, cold Argentine winters, would entertain the energetic young boys with his climbing photos and tales of Patagonian adventures. These images along with mountaineering literature left them with an insatiable thirst for adventure, and the inspiration to embark on their own incredible journey. Before long, the steep granite towers and glacier coated peaks of Northern Patagonia, along with Aconcagua, became an immense training ground where the Brothers would nurture their love for the great outdoors, fine-tune their climbing skills, and establish themselves as truly world-class alpinists.

Now, after over twenty seasons and more than 100 summits of Aconcagua, the Benegas Brothers have guided climbers and adventurers from countries all around the world, all over the world! Benegas Brothers Expeditions reflect the spirit of mountain exploration in an exciting, safe, and intimate family atmosphere. We take pride in providing our groups with the best possible opportunity to summit, and to discover a mountain of possibilities on peaks worldwide.

Current Featured Trips

Mount Vinson

19 days
Although comparatively modest in terms of height, Vinson offers a major challenge due to the harshness of its climate and its extremely remote location. Despite a relatively easy technical grade, climbing Vinson is tough in all other respects, temperatures of -40°C are likely to be encountered and climbers should be both psychologically and physically prepared for this. The remote situation and harsh conditions provide the real challenge of this climb. However, for those who can meet this challenge, we can promise an experience that will be much more than just another mountain.

Aztec Giants: Orizaba & Iztaccihuatl

10 Days
In the heart of Mexico, and a scenic drive from the bustling capital city, lie the grand volcanic peaks of Itza and Orizaba. Izta, “the sleeping lady” is located 50 miles southeast of Mexico City. Depending on the team’s ability, we will climb one of two routes: the Arista Del Sol Route along a majestic and classic ridge or the more technical Ayoloco Route. We recover and replenish in the city of Puebla before our next aim: Orizaba. Orizaba (5746m) is Mexico’s highest peak and the third highest peak in North America.

Alpine Climbing in Colombia

11 days
Located in the northeast portion of the Andes of Colombia, El Cocuy National Park and its highest peak, Ritacuba Blanco, offer easily accessible beginner to intermediate terrain, with straightforward glacial climbs. From a centrally located base camp our beginner climbers, and also those looking for an expedition to lesser traveled South American mountainous regions, are granted access to many different peaks with utterly spectacular views. This trip is simply unique, especially when compared to the popular climbing destinations of Ecuador, Peru, and Bolivia.

With the experience of over a dozen summits and a strong and loyal staff of Sherpas, kitchen crew, and base camp support, climbing with Benegas Brothers Expeditions is an Everest expedition incomparable to any of the larger commercial operators. Our level of service is renowned, our base camp a true family experience, and our passion for the mountain unmatched.
