Itinerary Details

FULL DAY:
SANTIAGO - CAJON DEL MAIPO / GLACIERS & HOT SPRINGS

Depart from your Hotel in Santiago in a comfortable, air-conditioned van to begin the journey into the splendid natural scenery of El Cajon de Maipo. Follow a curvaceous road chiseled into the mountain range, admiring rushing rivers, verdant vineyards, and beautifully sculpted rock formations as you travel. Stop at San Jose de Maipo, a traditional town declared the regional capital, to appreciate the quaint architecture and purchase snacks for the energetic hike.

Climb back aboard the vehicle and continue to El Morado Natural Monument or an announced alternative route if weather conditions are not favorable,  to begin your exhilarating 5-hour hike. Follow your guide through a diverse spectrum of natural tableaus, encountering steep rocky inclines and lush meadows of blooming wildflowers as you walk; gaze at the jagged snow-capped spires of the Andes as you keep your eyes peeled for graceful condors gliding up above. Enjoy a well-deserved rest with the majestic view of the Andes after a 2.5-hour ascent; admire the frozen witchery of the feature while eating a fulfilling box lunch consisting of a fresh sandwich, fruits, and snacks for your hike. Marvel at the enchanting vision of El Morado’s Park as you absorb the tranquility of the enclave.

Next, return to the vehicle and indulge your aching muscles in the therapeutic waters of the Banos Colinas in the middle of the mountain. After a relaxing respite in the springs, you will enjoy a picnic with a local product with some wine to finish the perfect day! Then you will return to your vehicle and sink into the comfortable seats for the journey back to Santiago.
