Benegas Brothers Expeditions



At an awe inspiring 6963m, Aconcagua is the highest mountain in the Western Hemisphere, and you get to climb it! Our most popular mountaineering destination by far, this mountain is a fantastic introduction to high altitude expedition climbing. Benegas Brothers Expeditions has been guiding and climbing on Aconcagua for 20 years, and we strive to provide an exciting experience filled with remarkable views, environmentally safe practices, and small group sizes to help you reach your dreams. Trust us, from the moment we meet at the airport you’re in the capable hands of our BBE guides and friendly base camp staff who are all working to provide you with an unforgettable adventure. Our group’s many years together have created a well-organized family atmosphere on the mountain; and as some of the most experienced guides on Aconcagua, we offer this once in a lifetime opportunity to share our vast local knowledge as we take you to the ‘Roof of the Americas’.

We first climbed Aconcagua in 1987 and have since explored every valley and climbing route on this giant, and we always take the greatest care to select routes that offer the best experiences for our veteran and novice climbers. Therefore, for the 2016-17 season we will continue to offer two routes for a choice between non-technical and technical ascents; the 22-day Northwest Ridge (The Regular Route) and the 22-day Polish Glacier Climb.

You can find more detailed information about these two routes below, and we look forward to climbing with you to the ‘Roof of the Americas’!

Aconcagua Polish Glacier Route

22 days
The Polish Glacier is a much more serious undertaking than the Normal Route and only for qualified climbers, given the rigors of climbing ice at 22,000'. Our climb begins from Camp III and entails a 3,500' elevation gain on steep snow and ice. With BBE's unique program, you'll be able to attempt famous Aconcagua Polish Glacier in the best shape, and also explore a different area in the Andes, before moving to the glacier. This gives us better acclimatization while visiting different mountains and avoiding the stress of multiple days at Plaza de Mulas Base Camp. We begin our ascent to high altitude elsewhere... a chance to see some of real Argentina with the Benegas Brothers!
