ITINERARY

Snowshoeing adventure through a winter scenic valley

Visit the majestic Andes Mountains via the picturesque valley of Cajón del Maipo. Our snowshoeing adventure will start as soon as we complete all the pickups and depart from Santiago, heading east towards the mountains. Your knowledgeable and expert mountaineering guide will choose the perfect location for this activity. (Depending on snow and weather conditions)
The very first stop is a small market where we’ll stock up on snacks for our trek. Shortly after, we will arrive at the starting point of the hike. Before you start the snow shoeing adventure, your guide will explain how to use the snow shoes and how to make sure you don´t waste your body energy. The guide will give you all the necessary instructions so that you can have the best experience possible whilst hiking in the Andes Mountains.
After ascending for approximately 2,5 hours, we will arrive to the area of Aguas Panimavida, where you will marvel at the hypnotizing landscape; scour the natural panorama for jagged snow-capped peaks and rejoice in the sheer presence of “El Morado”, soaring 15,246 feet (4,467 meters) into the sky. After walking deep into the Andean mountain range, we will stop for a box lunch (usually a sandwich with fruit, snacks, and juice – vegetarian option available), while your guide tells you stories of the surrounding volcanoes and mountains.
After resting in the heart of the Cajon del Maipo, our guide will lead the way back down to the minivan, which will take you (if the group wants) to a local place to have a typical Chilean dish and a beer, and then back to Santiago.
