Today is really about marveling at the wonderful scenery surrounding Mendoza. After leaving the hotel early in the morning, you will set off west where you will enter the Andes. Cross three mountain ranges to enjoy the different shapes, colours and textures that unfold before you until you come to the trailhead, from where you can see the Cerro Aconcagua (known as the roof of America, 6959mts above sea level at its peak) and do a short hike to the Laguna de Horcones in summer. On the way back you will visit Puente del Inca, Los Penitentes ski center, Uspallata and Potrerillos Reservoir. Return to the hotel in the evening.
