Cajon del Maipo 8km Hiking Day Tour in the Andes from Santiago
From USD 110.00
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.
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.

Highly doubt it. While the tour starts very early to avoid traffic in the morning, It can't really be avoided on the way back. Hence my tour ended later than stated.

No, you are picked up but it’s about an hour to drive to the trek (but you stop on the way so it’s actually longer). The whole trip is an entire day, but the trek itself is short - you stop for lunch for about an hour. It’s... More
