CAJON DEL MAIPO ESCAPE – PRIVATE TRIP

US$ 655 / 2 days

What can I expect?

Places such as the Maipo Valley are unique. A perfect valley for trekking, surrounded by snowy mountains, over 5,000m high, very close to the city of Santiago, where we can cross the River Maipo and see San José volcano and several villages. After the hike, our reward will be the arrival at the comfortable and peaceful hotel located on the mountain. The following day, we will go to Pirque to visit the chosen vineyard for the finale of this spectacular mountain experience.

Itinerary Summary

Cajón del Maipo is a historic Andean valley in the southeast of the Chilean capital. It is home to beautiful mountainous landscapes – some of the central zone’s most stunning views. Here, we will be surrounded by mountains, volcanoes, glaciers, hot springs, rivers, and animals such as the majestic condor.

We will walk through a valley located near the Argentinean border, where we will be able to see the San Francisco glacier and the Cerro El Morado mountain chain.

We will stay in a hotel located in the San Alfonso región opposite the river Maipo, surrounded by hills and forests. We will also visit Pirque, where Chile’s best Cabernet Sauvignon is produced. Here, we will tour some of the region’s oldest vineyards, taste their delicious wines and be immersed in their stories and knowledge.
