    During this hike, you will stop at a natural spring of iron-rich carbonated water called “Aguas de Panimávida”. Then, enjoy a box lunch in the mountains and then hike back for about 5 miles (4 kms) to the starting point. You will then board your vehicle back to Santiago and be dropped-off at your hotel. Connect with nature and enjoy this park on a great day trip. At the end of the tour you will be able to taste some good appetizzrs and some chilean wine.
