Explore the nature reserve in Aconcagua Provincial Park


With binoculars in hand, set out to explore Aconcagua Provincial Park and its nature reserve. Follow the mountain trails to discover remarkable flora and fauna. With a bit of luck, you'll catch a glimpse of Andean condors flying over the cactus and orchids in a preserved natural setting.

In the center of this varied landscape stands Cerro Aconcagua, the highest point in the Andes, nicknamed "the Colossus of America." Those wishing to undertake the ascent to its 22,841-foot summit will be walking in the footsteps of the Quechua people, who gave the mountain its name.

Aconcagua Park also offers a variety of colorful hikes. The trails invite you to explore an arid landscape in which the vegetation provides shelter for rare, protected species. This remarkable sporting experience will lead you to the roof of Argentina, from where you can admire lakes and snowy peaks all around. While the ascent is challenging and requires preparation, the panoramas that await your Cerro Aconcagua trek make for a priceless reward.
