ACROSS THE ANDES FROM ARGENTINA TO CHILE

The impressive Andean mountain range reaches its highest point near Mendoza in Argentina. In this spectacular region you ride over high passes between the snow-capped mountains with breathtaking views on both the Argentine and Chilean side.

DETAILED PROGRAM

DAY 1 – ARRIVAL IN MENDOZA

It is important to arrive in Mendoza one day before the expedition really starts. A guide gives you some information about the expedition and also checks your equipment.

DAY 2 – START OF THE EXPEDITION ON HORSEBACK

A car brings you from Mendoza towards the starting point of the expedition. During the ride of 130 kilometers you already get a good impression of the amazing landscape, through which you will ride in the coming days. You meet the guides, horses and drivers at the starting point and you visit the Argentinean customs office. After lunch you mount your horse and ride into the mountains. At the end of the afternoon you reach a hut, where the camp for the night is set up.

DAY 3 – BEAUTIFUL PANORAMAS

Today’s ride brings you over a pass at 4380 meters. Along the way you have superb views of the scenery and the snow-capped mountains. You spend about eight hours on horseback before you reach the hut in which you spend the night.

DAY 4 – A DAY AT LEISURE IN THE MOUNTAINS

The hut, where you spent the night belongs to the Argentinean army and is used by adventurers, mountaineers and mule drivers. You can hike through the amazing surroundings, while a guide explains more about the flora and fauna in the Andean mountains.

DAY 5 – WITH A VIEW OF A VOLCANO

After breakfast the expedition continues on horseback. You cross the river Tunuyán before you reach a viewpoint that offers you a magnificent view of the volcano Tupungato. Afterwards, you ride to the banks of the river Palomares until you reach the campsite, where the tents are set up. You spend the evening at the campfire below the marvelous stars.

DAY 6 – ACROSS THE BORDER TO CHILE

During the morning you ride to the Piuquenes Pass at an altitude of 4030 meters. Here you cross the Argentinean – Chilean border, having lunch with a splendid view. The horses are not allowed to cross the border. Hence, you say goodbye to the Argentinean horses and their drivers. You complete the expedition on Chilean horses, which bring you to the river Río Plomo. At the other side of the river, a car is waiting to bring you to Cajón del Maipo. Along the way, you visit the Chilean customs office in San Gabriel. This night you sleep in a nice posada in the village. In the evening you can share some of the adventures one last time with your fellow expedition members during during a farewell dinner.
