Mexico is close to the United States. When you first learn to climb, or first learn how to do any sport for that matter, you want to see if you like it. If you’re looking into a trip with Alpenglow, it’s probably not your first time on belay. However, it might be your first time big-mountain climbing, which means you’re likely being introduced to high altitude.

Meat on the grill on our Aconcagua climb in Argentina

One of the luxuries of Aconcagua is its proximity to Mendoza. A stunningly beautiful city, flowing with wine and packed with decadent food. The city is an Alpenglow favorite, and we explore and indulge in Mendoza both pre and post climb. So as you can probably see…we take our food very seriously at Alpenglow! But it’s an essential component of having the strength to climb big mountains and is also integral to experiencing the culture around you.
