ITINERARY

Cajon del Maipo & Pirque

At 8:00, we’ll pick you up from your hotel and set out on our trip. In a comfortable, air-conditioned minivan, we will head for the Cajón del Maipo – a beautiful valley located to the south-east of Santiago, on the edge of the River Maipo. The valley is characterized by its great local culture and native traditions. From San José de Maipo – the Cajón del Maipo’s main town – we will climb up to the lookouts at the historic Lagunillas, a unique ski center of the region. From here, we’ll be able to marvel at the spectacular view of the Andes mountain range, walk along the mountain paths observing each of the rising peaks, and – if we are lucky – see some of the region’s wildlife, such as condors, foxes, different types of birds, horses and cows. Against this beautiful backdrop, we can sample local produce such as goat’s cheese, seasonal fruits, nuts and spreads. After our picnic, we’ll head for the Apaltagua vineyard in the town of Pirque. Surrounded by a gorgeous, century-old park, containing a large native forest. which makes it part of our National Heritage. The neoclassical guest house was built in 1875 and its stuccos, handpainted by Italian artists, are striking. Here, we’ll tour the gardens and vineyards and try exclusive samples of the various wines made there. Once the tour and tasting session are finished, we’ll begin the journey back to our lodgings.
