Fernando Grajales (1924 – 2004) made climbing his life. In the fifties he earned a place in the history of mountaineering, leading expeditions in the Andes, the Himalayas and the great ranges of the world. Fernando shared his valuable experience in the family company. We are proud to honor that legacy, that made Grajales Expeditions one of the most reliable mountain logistics companies in the world.
Private Ground Transportation
Prices for private transportation are all one way. Pick-up time is scheduled by the passenger. Our fleet includes Mercedes Benz and Hyundai models.
Our spacious facilities are conveniently located at Los Penitentes ski resort, a few meters away from the lodge. Our staff will assist you in the packing process.
We utilize our own safe and reliable team of porters to carry gear up and down the mountain. Most of our porters are beginning their career as guides and have summited Aconcagua several times.
High Tech Communications
Reach your loved ones at home while you have tea in our dining tent! At Base Camp, we provide Ipads with Internet connection and satellite phones for crystal-clear communication.
Our radio network allows us communications not only with all the camps, but also with our base camp in Los Penitentes, the Park Rangers and the Rescue Patrol. We track our expeditions from the trailhead to the summit, thus optimizing safety and logistics.
We use renewable, environmentally-friendly power from solar panels and wind-powered generators.
In case of evacuation, excessive fatigue, accident or any other reason, we offer private helicopter flights from the base camps to Horcones. The flights depend on weather conditions and load weight (100-300 kg).
