    We are going Up!

    Ousland Explores Aconcagua

    Another exciting chapter in out history: We are heading into thin air with Cerro Aconcagua – one of the 7-Summits, and the highest mountain outside Himalaya. It is not only in the beautiful Andes mountain range, a suburb journey, but also a great, great place to learn about real altitude as it is often called the ‘Little 8000 meter Summit’.

    We will meet up in Mendoza the 20th of January 2020. After a few days we move up to Las Cuevas for preparations and some acclimatization. Then we will circumnavigate the whole mountain as we work our way in to Place Argentina Basecamp, before heading up towards the summit. After the summit we we descend to Place de Mulas basecamp on the other side, and complete our journey by circumnavigating the entire mountain by going out (the shorter) meir route to Penitents. From there we go directly on to Mendoza for a big Argentinian fiesta 🙂

    Full itinerary, details and prices will arrive soon. But we will, as always, look for a small team, bring two Norwegian guides and one local to enhance safety, flexibility, atmosphere and the chance of attaining the summit.

    Please feel free to contact us and sign up now as we will aim for a small team as we always do.

    See You there!
