The dam and glacier was absolutely stunning and we had an amazing tour. The hike up to the point was at times a little scetchy as we were walking on ice and was very slippery. There were heaps of people up there which you can...More

We were there in September and compared to other regions on Chile, it was very warm and sunny. We rented a 4x4 and had an amazing time hiking and soaking in the hot springs. I highly recommend the Banos Morales hot springs. The valley was...More

It was a lovely place, and interesting drive, but very crowded. It might have been because it was the Sunday of a holiday weekend, but there was a large traffic jam trying to get out of the canyon. The tour group could have just gone...More

Unmissable! This place is a zone, so you can go in many places. We choose Termas de Bano Colina from Santiago

Steep valley with many side canyons leading to the high Andes. Plan to take your lunch although there are many vendors selling food along the road.

Cajon del Maipo is around 2 hours far from Santiago. The last few kilomenters are quite challenging, but when you finally get there, you can enjoy a wonderful day and breathtaking view. It is quite windy there, so do not forget to take a coat...More

Not too far from Santiago. Driving up to el Vulcan there are easy walks to get you to a grassy plateau. More challenging walks can take you further afield. Great views of majestic mountains and the odd goat/horse.

We had a tiny (cheap) hire car & it was fine - but we did a fairly simple drive & we didn’t go off the main road/s If you are going to explore more off the roads then a 4wd would probably be useful
