This day trip is a panoramic tour by vehicle to enjoy the scenic beauty of Maipo Valley and El Yeso Lagoon, taking us to appreciate the Andes Mountains (up to 2500 m/8000 ft), its valleys, viewpoints and cascades.

 

We start the day with pickup services from your hotel location and begin our drive towards South-East Santiago and the Andes mountain range (2 hours- 100 km /62 miles). On this route we will cross the Maipo Valley offering us great views over the Andes foothills and the Maipo River, accompanied by Chilean and Andes (Folklore) Music playing during our drive.

 

In Embalse el Yeso, we will go on a small walk (2 km/ 1.3 miles approx.) bordering the lagoon to take in the landscape and obtain great photographs. Having a slight of luck we get to observe condors, eagles and wild foxes. After our walk, we will enjoy a nice picnic in the outdoors accompanied by wines, juices and tea along with a selection of typical Chilean treats such as cheeses, olives, biscuits and seasonal fruits.

 

On our return journey, we will have stops at beautiful viewpoints, and back in Maipo Valley we will have an optional visit to try out the traditional Chilean empanadas (at your own expense) before returning back to your hotel location in Santiago.
