Just outside the capital city of Santiago lies the outdoor adventure wonderland of Cajon de Maipo, a mountainous valley of rivers, forests, and snow-capped Andean peaks just waiting to be explored! With the aid of an expert local guide, this full day trip takes you to the impressive San Francisco glacier deep in the heart of the Andes, the prize after a 5 hour long, moderate hike along rocky trails with stunning views. Then, when the hike is over, rest your aching muscles at thermal hot springs located high up in the mountains.
