Departure from Santiago towards Cajón del Maipo, a beautiful eco-touristic destination in the Andes Mountains.
Our first visit begins visiting the village of San José de Maipo, located 48 kilometers from Santiago and declared as a National Heritage site, mainly due to its colonial style architecture, its church (which was built in 1800) and the Plaza de Armas, a meeting place for adventure tourism aficionados. Then, you will continue your trip into the majestic Andes mountain range, with its impressive multicolored landscapes, which become covered in snow during winter. Here, you will visit El Embalse del Yeso, located 2500 meters above sea level and where all the water for the Metropolitan Region comes from.
Its turquoise waters and the amazing Andes Mountains in the background make it a true wonder of nature.
You will enjoy a glass of Chilean wine and a cocktail to make the most out of the spectacular views, before having the option to eat lunch in one of the traditional restaurants in the area.
During the afternoon, we will return to our hotel in Santiago.
