Tour Details

Depart from your hotel in a comfortable, air-conditioned minivan and relax during the scenic southeastern drive to the heart of the Andean Mountain range. Ascend a winding off-road path and admire the stunning sights as you approach your destination.

Arrive at the dramatic valley of Cajon del Maipo and marvel at the hypnotizing landscape; scour the natural panorama for jagged snow-capped peaks, bounteous orchards and verdant vineyards before disembarking at 9,843 feet (3,000 meters) above sea level, at the Embalse el Yeso Reservoir.

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 guide.

Return to your vehicle and enjoy a delicious picnic accompanied with a nice selection of Chilean wines.

Continue your adventure along a picturesque rural road to San Jose de Maipo, a charming town enveloped by the Andean Mountains. Declared the capital of the region in 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.

Return to the minivan and appreciate the beautiful landscape as you travel back to your hotel in Santiago.
