Santiago: Cajon del Maipo and Termas Colina Trip with Picnic

1. Santiago: Cajon del Maipo and Termas Colina Trip with Picnic

Discover the magnificent Andes Mountains on a guided day trip from Santiago. Pass by the Tinoco Tunnel, admire the picturesque Cajón del Maipo gorge, and enjoy a picnic lunch overlooking the Termas Colinas Hot Springs. Start your tour early in the morning with a convenient pickup directly from your accommodation. Hop into the air-conditioned van and set out towards the Maipo Canyon. As you travel, admire the wonderful views of this natural landscape full of high mountain passes, lakes, and forests. Hear about the area's traditions and listen to folktales told by your guide. Along the way, pass the Tinoco Tunnel, a dark, disused train tunnel that runs along the Camino Al Volcán, a remnant from the region's railway days. Listen as your guide tells you about the history of this unusual attraction and the tragic story behind the shrines located at the tunnel's entrance and exit. Not far from here, you'll reach the Termas Colinas Hot Springs. Relax in any of the seven pools with temperatures ranging from 130ºF to 86ºF, heated by the nearby volcano. Stop here to enjoy a picnic-style lunch served with a glass of wine and some juice. Then, sit back and relax as you set out on your return journey to Santiago, where your driver will drop you off directly at your accommodation.

What people are saying about San José de Maipo

Superb tour. The guys were friendly, knowledgeable and clearly committed to their work. They were great with my son (aged 10), and the whole trip was better than we had hoped for. The food/drink was high quality and they knew when to not talk and just let us snooze in the back. Cannot recommend AndoAndes enough. If going to the hot springs, do note that the infrastructure is basic but that this has nothing to do with the guides! It’s an amazing experience and even though we got back to the hotel exhausted, it’s a day we will remember for a long time. You won’t regret booking this tour with these brilliant tour guides.

Excellent tour, punctual, all the details provided. Excellent guide Emanuel with his good vibes, always ready to answer questions and collaborate throughout the tour. Excellent also Carlos the driver.
