Santiago - Cajon del Maipo - Santiago

Depart from your Santiago hotel in a comfortable, air-conditioned minivan and relax during the scenic southeastern drive to the heart of the Andean mountain range.

We'll ascend a winding off-road path and admire the stunning sights as arrive at the dramatic valley of Cajon del Maipo. Marvel at the hypnotizing landscape, natural panorama for jagged snow-capped peaks, bounteous orchards and verdant vineyards.

We'll disembark at 9,843 feet (3,000 meters) above sea level at the Embalse el Yeso reservoir where we'll set out on a walk around the glittering turquoise waters of the lake. Capture incredible photographs as you circumvent the rugged canyons, listening to captivating commentary about the geology and ecology of the area with your expert guide.

Then we'll return to the vehicle and enjoy a delicious picnic-cocktail accompanied with a nice selection of Chilean wines. After filling our stomachs we'll venture along a picturesque rural road to San Jose de Maipo, a charming town enveloped by the Andean mountains. Declared the capital of the region since 1792, the provincial pueblo boasts quaint artisan shops and an ambient central plaza.

Take some time to stroll the serene streets, learning about local folklore as you absorb beautiful views of the surrounding mountains and try a traditional "empanada" at a local empanada shop. 

Then we'll return to the minivan and appreciate the luscious landscape as you travel back to your Santiago hotel.

Your guide and driver pick you up at your hotel between 8:00am and 8:30am and drop you off at about 6:00pm in the evening.
