Andes Day Trip from Mendoza Including Aconcagua, Uspallata and Puente del Inca
US$ 57.00
Overview
Take a full-day adventure to the Andes on a guided coach traveling the famous Pan-American Highway. Head towards Aconcagua, the highest mountain in the Americas, then disembark to take in the area's stunning beauty and fresh air. Along the way, stop at Las Cuevas, Poterillos, and Puente del Inca.
What to Expect
A comfortable, air-conditioned coach will collect you at your Mendoza hotel and head out for the Pan-American Highway. As you cruise towards the Chilean border, learn about the region's cultural and natural features through your expert guide's insightful commentary. The urban architecture of Mendoza will give way to rolling wine country grape vines and eventually mountain peaks as you travel.

Potrerillos will be your first stop, where you can get some fresh air, purchase a snack, and admire the lake, the Embalse de Potrerillos. Your next stop is Uspallata, a charming mountain town with abundant alpine views and an opportunity to purchase lunch. Back on the bus, you'll reach Puente del Inca about 60 minutes later. This natural rock bridge over the Vacas River was once visited by Charles Darwin, and its swirls of colored rock make for great photos. There's a small community living nearby that has handmade native goods for sale.

Continue heading west towards Chile's border and Aconcagua. Argentina is the location of the largest mountain in the Americas, clocking in at 22,840 feet (6,960 meters.) The coach will stop at a scenic overlook for wonderful views and photo opportunities as the guide fills you in on information about the mountain itself.

Pichueta, a site of indigenous Huarpe ruins dating from the 5th century, is your last stop. After that the coach will head back down the Pan-American highway the way it came, delivering you back to your Mendoza hotel around 7 pm.

Great get away from the city for a day!

Excellent day tour. Well organized and comfortable coach. Although the guide was informative, he didn't spend much time explaining in English since our family was the only English speaking one. Overall still a great value for money.

Almost excellent

This was a great day out. The scenery is magnificent. The guide Lucas was very good and amusing. What ruined the day was getting back to Mendoza 2 hours late. Hotel drop offs were to start at 7ish but we didn't get back until 9.

Overall a disappointing experience

We were looking forward to this tour from Mendoza, but it was pretty disappointing overall. Pickup- We were told they start pick-ups at 7:30 in the city center. They arrived at our hotel at 8:05. We were a little concerned, but the hotel told us...More
