About
It is the first camp on the way to the highest mountain following the Himalaya and the highest in the Americas: Aconcagua. On the way to one of the 7 highest peaks in the world, all travelers arrive at Confluencia, located in Quebrada de los Horcones (Mendoza) at 3,400 meters above sea level. There, you will have a glimpse of mountaineering and the pleasure of being in nature, in the middle of a small country village. We look forward to having you on this adventure, where you will enjoy the majestic landscape of rivers and highlands, and the view of the southern wall of Aconcagua. The hike is of moderate difficulty, so it is important to exercise frequently. Located in: the base of Aconcagua in the Central Andes mountain range.

Hike to the Confluencia
Mar 2020 • Couples
Joaquin and this trek were the best way to end our stay here in Argentina. He was very knowledgeable and passionate about his work and we thoroughly enjoyed his company. He is professional, easy to talk with and made the whole day absolutely wonderful. The trek is beautiful and he had little touches that made the day even more memorable. Could not recommend him enough for any trek you are thinking of treking with him!!

Fabulous tour company
The hike to Confluencia base camp with Destino Montaña was excellent. Our guide Joaquin (who is also the owner) was lovely and knowledgable - full of information about the mountain and surrounding environment. He is really passionate about his business and committed to giving the customer a unique and personalised experience.

After the 3 hour hike to Confluencia, we had a delicious lunch before heading back down.

If you are thinking of hiking in the Mendoza area, I highly recommend Destino Montaña for fabulous service and a great experience.

Amazing Experience, highly recommended!
Jan 2019 • Couples
When we were first planning our visit to Mendoza, we thought of devoting most of our time to wineries and little trips around the city. After doing some research and talking to locals, we were told by many to visit Aconcagua or at least try to fit a trip into our schedule to visit the Andes mountains. We went on tripadvisor, FB and other travel sites but we only found multiple day trips to the mountains, or trips that drove you in a car/van around different sights the whole day. There were only very few "active" options - either riding horses, hiking nearby mountains, or rafting. My gf and I really enjoying hiking so we didn't want to spend 7-8 hours in a car and after a ton of research, we were fortunate to find Destino Montaña (2 days before our trip): Since our first contact through WhatsApp, Joaco was extremely helpful, straightforward and clearly knowledgeable of the mountains and different options. Our goal was to see a beautiful landscape and have the opportunity to hike for a couple of hours in the mountain. We agreed to visit and hike Arenales in Valle de Uco, and Joaco agreed to pick us up at 8am. He showed up on time, and mentioned that the weather didn't look good in Arenales or Vallecitos - there was a high chance of winds and rain, which would've made the trip and hike a little miserable baed on our goals. He suggested instead making the drive to Aconcagua and hike up to camp Confluencia, the first basecamp at 3400 meters. Long story short, we said yes, drove 3 hours to the base of Aconcagua and the landscape was absolutely incredible. We hiked to the base for 3 hours, had lunch for about an hour, came down and then drove back to the city. Joaco was very knowledgeable of the history of the area, the mountains and a great mountaineer - guiding us at a good pace to enjoy the hike/walk, and sharing really interesting stories along the way. We had some mate, a really good and healthy sandwich for lunch, some coffee and snacks, and overall an awesome time. I'd highly recommend Destino Montaña for anyone who wants to do a private tour in the mountains with a true expert and for a really good price - Joaco is not only certified, but graduated as a mountaineer. It was also very fortunate that we had a flexible guide who was willing to change our itinerary and hike at our pace to make our experience worthwhile. We had such a great time that after this trip, we made it one of our goals to come back and hike Aconcagua guided by Joaco!
