The dramatic gorge and snow-capped mountains of Cajon Del Maipo sit just south of Santiago and it's an idyllic destination to escape the city for a day. This small-group tour offers a more personalized experience, with a local guide to take you to all the best viewpoints and a picnic served against the natural backdrop.
What to Expect
Your tour begins with pickup from your central Santiago hotel. Traveling aboard an air-conditioned minivan, set out on the around 1-hour journey to Cajón del Maipo, soaking up the scenery as you leave the city behind and climb up into the Andes mountains.
Stop along the way for an empanada and to admire the region’s many natural wonders, including waterfalls, glaciers, and snow-covered mountains.
Upon arrival at Cajón del Maipo, a dramatic river gorge at the heart of the mountains, your guide takes you to one of the most impressive viewpoints to take in the natural landscapes as you sip Chilean wine and tuck into a picnic.
After refreshments, enjoy some free time to explore or take photos before you set out on the return journey. Back in Santiago, your tour ends with drop-off at your hotel.
