What You Can Expect

Day Trip to Cajon Del Maipo from Santiago

Winter Season and Picnic with wine

Receive a morning pickup from your hotel in Santiago. You’ll travel by air-conditioned minivan out of the city toward Cajón del Maipo in the mountainous Andes region outside of town. As you drive, you’ll make periodic stops to take in views of local waterfalls and glaciers.

You’ll soon arrive amidst the towering rock walls of this scenic gorge area, taking time to soak up the postcard-perfect views as your driver-guide prepares your included picnic. Sip on Chilean wine and a snack made with local ingredients, a meal made even better by your incredible view.

After finishing your picnic and exploration of the area, climb back into your van for the ride back to Santiago, where you’ll be dropped off at your hotel around 5pm.

Fantastic day out. Picked up from our hotel in Santiago then driven up the mountain to a beautiful lake. Absolutely stunning. Had a pleasant lunch. Great value and highly recommend

Lovely trip, well worth it. Gabriel was an excellent host and guide and made it really worth our while. I would strongly recommend this trip.
The fact that we left early ensured that we avoided the midday crowds and we experienced the magical colours in the water which disappear as the wind picks up speed. A very important consideration.

Francisco was the BEST guide! Very informative and fun. Beautiful scenery and he was great at pointing out good photo opportunities!. One of the best parts was when he pulled out the picnic table and we had wine and snacks while looking at beautiful scenery!

By far the best experience I had while visiting Chile. This really made the entire trip worth it. It's beautiful and its amazing and something everyone should witness while visiting Chile. I met some great people on this trip from different parts of the world, you enjoy a bus ride, a short hike and some delicious wine and appetizers while enjoying the view of Cajon del Maipo. Would highly recommend this to anyone.

My best decision to join this trip! It made my experience in Santiago even more worthwhile. Gabriel is very funny and he is a very knowledgeable guide. He took us to the best spots of the canyon and we had a very nice picnic next to the lake. He is also an excellent photographer!! Highly recommend!

I am a 21 year old from the U.S. This trip was perfect for me. My tour guide was Gabriel. After you book, you will need to let the tour guides know where you can get picked up.
I recommend using WhatsApp to communicate with them.Then you wait for your driver to guide you through the beautiful Andes

We had a seriously great day out at Cajon Del Maipo thanks both to great weather late March buy also a great guide and driver. We've done a number of trips with Viator during our visit to Chile - this was probably the best given the stunning scenery.

If you are comparing prices, know that this is the best trip even if it cost a few dollars more. The guide is great and the trip is amazing. Less walking to get to the perfect spot to experience the Andes.
