The Andes Crossing Expedition on horseback is a profoundly emotional experience, owed not only to the grandeur of the landscapes and the challenging weather conditions, but also to the tireless efforts of the mules, guides, and local experts known as baqueanos.
Additionally, the journey carries a historical significance that leaves its imprint at every turn and campsite. It's as if we're transported back in time, reliving the remarkable saga of the great patriot Don José de San Martín and his liberating forces. They once traversed these very gorges, mountain ranges, valleys, and passes, shaping the foundation of our nation's and continent's freedom.
Stunning vistas unfold before you, accompanied by the breathtaking sights of the highest peaks on the continent: Mount Aconcagua and Mount Mercedario. This route, often referred to as the "6 thousand meters peaks route," takes you through an array of astonishing landscapes.
