At a height of 6893m, Volcano Ojos del Salado is the highest mountain in Chile and also the highest active volcano in the world. We run private guided trips to this peak mostly, occasionally open trips and our guiding ratio is 1:6 and we drive from the mining town of Copiapo to the lagunas below the mountain and do a number of acclimatisation hikes before ascending to the base camp and then using one other high camp (in a hut) just before summit day.

Ojos del Salado is normally climbed from December to late March. It´s the warmest period in the southern hemisphere, but it's still windy and dry and conditions can be quite rough also during peak season.
