Itinerary Summary

A combination of Chile’s most famous wines with the crisp air of the Andes mountain range. First, we will head to southeast Santiago, toward the Cajón del Maipo. We will visit Lagunillas – a small ski center. We will go on a short hike, during which – depending on the season – we will see sights such as the mountain chain, snow, glaciers and the Andean condor. After the hike, we’ll be able to enjoy a delicious picnic, made from local ingredients up on the hilltops. Afterward, we’ll head to Santa Rita vineyard located in Maipo Valley or Concha y Toro located in Pirque, where we can walk around some beautiful gardens and a great colonial house with historical stories from the region.

Itinerary Details

FULL DAY:
SANTIAGO - CAJÓN DEL MAIPO / ANDES AND WINE

Between 8:30 and 9 am, 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 Santa Rita or Concha y Toro vineyard, both surrounded by a gorgeous park of native forest. Here, we’ll tour the gardens and vineyards and try exclusive samples of the various wines made there. Once the tour and tasting session is finished, we’ll begin the journey back to our lodgings.
