The Seven Summits

Aconcagua

Aconcagua is a fantastic introduction to high altitude expedition climbing

At An Awe Inspiring 6963m, Aconcagua Is The Highest Mountain In The Western Hemisphere, And You Get To Climb It!

Aconcagua is one of the Seven Summits, and is one of our most popular mountaineering destinations. It can serve  as an introduction to high altitude expedition climbing or tackled via more technical routes.

Benegas Brothers Expeditions has been guiding and climbing on Aconcagua for over 25 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.

For 2022, BBE’s perennial focus on small group sizes serves as a differentiator as the global community begins to recover and re-open following the COVID pandemic. Adventures off the beaten track while providing a sustainable adventure, both in terms of client-to-guide ratio but also environmental wellness of our mountains are operational pillars for BBE. So as you contemplate embarking on an expedition like this, no detail will go overlooked and unchecked.

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. Throughout our tenure operating on Aconcagua we 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.

In my experience, few provide a more complete, safe and rewarding expedition experience than the Benegas Brothers. When it comes to expedition judgement, safety and climbing ethics, Willie and Damian set the bar as high as the mountains they climb.

There’s a lot more to high altitude climbing expeditions than just getting to the top. Team dynamics, the opportunities to learn skills, making life long friends, enjoying new cultures and cuisine are some of the important elements of an expedition. In my experience, few provide a more complete, safe and rewarding expedition experience than the Benegas Brothers. When it comes to expedition judgement, safety and climbing ethics, Willie and Damian set the bar as high as the mountains they climb. My son Matt and I have 100% trust and confidence in Willie and Damian and when I’m not climbing with Matt, it’s reassuring to know he’s with Benegas Brothers.

Willie Benegas was my guide and I couldn't have made a better choice!

I chose to climb Aconcagua with Benegas Brothers Expeditions because I was told by a friend that they know that mountain better than anyone and are known by all the local people. I am a trekker, not a climber, and I am about the journey, not just the summit. My journey was different from anyone else in the mountain. We acclimatized outside the park on Chilean/Argentina boarder and I met all kinds of local people on the way. It was also the first time that a guide cared to teach me every little step and technique to make me a better climber and to ensure my success. I will only climb with BBE from now on as nothing else as compared to this experience. Thank you Willie!
