Known as the finest guides on the mountain, they lead not only AMG trips but are lead guides for some of the most renowned guide services in the industry. Several of our lead guides have over 40 ascents of Aconcagua and all guides are certified by AAGM (Argentinean Association of Mountain Guides) and the EPGAMT (School of High Mountain and Trekking Guides), the two highest certifications in Argentina.
Our guides are well vetted as we believe your guide is the most important part of your experience, and we understand our reputation truly lies on your guide’s experience. Our guides are passionate about their work and do not simply guide but serve as teachers, medics and friends as they share their mountain knowledge along the way.
We can guarantee that they have outstanding knowledge of the mountain, are well-trained and understand the personal nuances of guiding others (great climbers do not always make great guides). All guides are medically trained and carry first aid kits to handle situations that may arise on the mountain. (This is important not just for emergencies but in making decisions that help clients acclimatize better and stay healthy). All guides carry VHF radios to communicate with other guides and Base Camp.
