About
Visit the majestic mountains of the Andes through the picturesque valley of the volcano in the Cajon del Maipo. Our snowshoe adventure will begin by picking you and the other adventurers to leave the city of Santiago, heading east towards the mountains. After ascending for approximately 2.5 hours, we will arrive at the Lo Valdes area, at a German mountain shelter to store our snacks for the route here you will marvel at the mesmerizing landscape of the Andes range, while your guide tells you stories of the volcanoes and mountains of the surroundings. After that, we will continue to "Engorda Valley" in the Andes mountain range to start our 4 to 5 km hike. Before you start, your guide will teach you how to use the snow-shoes. After approximately 3 hours of hiking, you will reach the ending point, to enjoy your hearty box lunch in the heart of the Cajon del Maipo. Afterwards, we will start descending to return to our vehicle and back to Santiago.
