What You Can Expect

Andes Trekking Tour from Mendoza

Trek in Argentina

Relax on the drive from Mendoza to Potrerillos by minivan, passing vineyards and views of the surrounding mountains.

Accompanied by your professional guide, start your Andes hiking tour by heading out into the mountains and rocky valleys surrounding Potrerillos. You’ll be surrounded by views of the snow-capped Andes, and see steep rocky hills whose peaks are hidden by fluffy clouds. You'll also take in gorgeous views of the man-made lake in Potrerillos. The 12 km long, 3 km wide (7.5 miles long, 2 miles wide) lake is breathtaking and the perfect stop for a photo opportunity.

Your moderately difficult hike will take about five to six hours, and you’ll stop for breaks to take photos, rest and refuel with an included boxed lunch, fruit and mineral water (please bring your own additional snacks, if you wish).

This classic trek in the Argentine mountains will be one of the highlights of your trip to Mendoza.

3 star rating: Worth doing December 2013

Trek was great but very expensive for what you get.

3 star rating: Worth doing March 2013

The hike that was offered was 'Cerro Torre' which was not particularly attractive as it had a muddy start and was quite steep at time. In my opinion this was at the upper end of moderate and perhaps might better be described at moderate to strenuous. It was also NOT a full day or even 5 to 6 hours as advertised but took only 4 hours to complete. There are more attractive hikes in the immediate vicinity and I would suggest changing to one of these.
