Cajon Del Maipo Trekking Tour with Baños Colina Hot Springs from Santiago
From US$130.00
Overview
A guided tour to Cajon del Maipo takes the guesswork out of deciding where to visit in this top Santiago day trip destination. Your guides carry food and water during a challenging hike through the Andes to a scenic vista point and then drive you to natural thermal pools, where they break out a bottle of Chilean wine and tapas. This small-group tour is limited to 12 people or fewer so your guides can give you the personal attention and detailed information large tours are likely to miss.
What to Expect
Get ready for your tour to Cajon del Maipo from Santiago by wearing comfortable layers and good hiking shoes; be ready for morning hotel pickup.

After driving to a trailhead, follow your guide on a 3.5-mile (6 kilometer) hike through the Andes to a lookout point 8,200 feet (2,500 meters) above sea level.

Though the trek is challenging, 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 from the summit.

After descending, drive to the thermal water pools at Banos Colina. Natural pools feel luxurious after a challenging hike (and when enjoyed with an included glass of Chilean wine and tapas).

Get dropped off at your Santiago hotel at the end of the tour.

Please note: This tour is of medium difficulty and intended for people in good physical condition between 12 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 may change due to weather conditions and is only available from October to May.

Expensive: do not pay what you can get for half

This is an extremely expensive tour. You can arrange it by yourself and rent a car to go there. Do not pay more than in a European city. These prices are super inflated and Chilean people do not benefit from it.More
