Head to the top of the Pre-Andes Mountains peaking at altitudes around 9,840 feet (3000 m). Throughout the tour enjoy dramatic views of the Andes Mountains before heading for the Uspallata Valley, located 62 miles (100 km) from Mendoza.

As we trek along the panamerican highway we will have the opportunity to see Poterillos and Upsallata. Then we will make stops in the small villages of Picheuta, Polvaredas and Punta de Vacas. We will pass through the heart of Punta de Vacas to the famous village of Los Penitentes, a popular ski center.

Continuing on our journey we reach Puente del Inca (Inca's Bridge), approximately 8,924 feet above sea level (2,720 m). The Las Cuevas River borders the mountains forming a natural bridge under which thermal water flows.

Next on the tour we will take a break and stop at a magnificent viewpoint, just a short distance from the border of Chile offering expansive views of the surrounding area is Mount Aconcagua.

If weather conditions are favorable, we will also have the chance to visit the Cristo Redentor (Christ the Redeemer) monument standing at an altitude of 13,779 feet (4200 m). This monument symbolizes the Argentine-Chilean fraternity.
