Overview
This guided tour of Cajon del Maipo takes you to a popular waterfall, a natural thermal pool at Banos Colina, and a vista point at La Engorda Valley. A moderate 3-hour trek is made easier by guides who carry enough water and lunch for everyone, as well as tell you about the local environment as you walk.
Highlights
  • Cajon del Maipo tour from Santiago: La Engorda and Banos Colina
  • 3-hour trek gets you off the beaten tourist track 
  • Guides carry water, snacks, and lunch—leaving you free to walk with ease 
  • Trip to natural thermal springs relaxes you after the hike
  • Fun and engaging way to learn about Cajon del Maipo 
  • Hotel pickup and drop-off included for easy transport
What to Expect
After pickup from your Santiago hotel, head toward Cajon del Maipo, optionally stopping for breakfast in a local town along the way. Warm up with a 25-minute hike to a popular waterfall. Then, begin your 3-hour trek to a vista point in La Engorda Valley with panoramic views of San Jose Volcano and the Andes Mountains stretching far beyond. Your guides never rush you and keep you entertained with information about the ecosystem as you hike. Your guides also carry backpacks with snacks and water so you don’t have to, and they make you a picnic lunch to eat while you admire views. Tour concludes with a celebratory glass of Chilean wine and drop-off at your Santiago hotel. Please note: This tour is of medium difficulty and intended for people in good physical condition between 8 and 70 years old. Those with asthma, heart problems, obesity, or a surgical operation in the past six months should not attempt the trek. Tour is only available year-round.

Andes are gorgeous, that goes without saying, but the guys from AndoAndes (namely Emanuel, Elias and the driver Carlos) made the hike unforgettable. They were just great, a lot of fun, but also very knowledgeable about the area, and caring about our comfort the whole time. Can

I’m a jaded hiker and found this scenery to be world class. Not too hard either: a moderately steep, but very doable, grade for about 45 minutes followed by a flat-ish loop once you get to the valley beneath the volcano. Lots of goats and horses to enhance your photos. Service
