The Seven Summits are the highest peaks on each continent. If you are interested in climbing all of the Seven Summits, ask us about our Seven Summits Expeditions. We will be very happy to help you accomplish this attainable goal. For over two decades Aventuras Patagonicas has been leading expeditions to 3 of the Seven Summits, specializing in Aconcagua, Denali, and Vinson. We have recently expanded to Kilimanjaro, Elbrus, and Carstensz Pyramid, closing the circle at the highest possible standard. We have designed unique packages to provide you with an extremely flexible schedule of "climb when you can" when purchasing one of these packages to suit your aspirations, while at the same time saving $1000's of dollars.
The Seven Summits represent both technical and non-technical ascents. Our programs will work with you in a very progressive way, if you are motivated, and let us work with you, we can realistically help you attain six of the Seven Summits in a two year period.
