After picking up the hotel, the first stop is San José de Maipo, a small and picturesque village founded in 1792. After a walk, you will continue to Cajón del Maipo and El Yeso Dam (Embalse El Yeso), the main source of fresh water for Santiago.

During the trip, you will see a glacier; flora and fauna typical of the area; and a wonderful Andean mountain system that continues to evolve. In the reservoir, you will have time to enjoy the wonderful landscape, accompanied by a cheese tasting.

On the way back to Santiago, there will be time for a late lunch in a typical mountain restaurant (included).

The visit concludes with the delivery of the hotel.
