El Aconcagua, con sus 6960 m, es la montaña más alta de América Latina y el pico más elevado fuera de Asia. Está situada en la cordillera de los Andes en Argentina. Miles de andinistas concurren cada año a realizar el desafío de conquistar su cumbre.

El Glaciar de los Polacos te está esperando, tanto si ya ascendiste al Aconcagua por una de sus rutas normales como si decidís escalarlo por una ruta más exigente y técnica; muchos de nuestros clientes están eligiendo esta opción como un entrenamiento previo antes de viajar al Himalaya.
