  • 3-hour trek gets you off the beaten tourist track 

  • Guides carry water, snacks, and lunch—leaving you free to walk with ease 

  • Trip to natural thermal springs relaxes you after the hike

  • Small-group tour means you’re not just another tourist

  • Fun and engaging way to learn about Cajon del Maipo 

  • Hotel pickup and drop-off included for easy transport


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.
