Small-Group Cajón del Maipo Full-Day Tour and Picnic
From US$44.90
Overview
Though undeniably beautiful, the Embalse El Yeso reservoir in Cajon del Maipo is notoriously difficult to access. Visit as part of a guided tour from Santiago to let an experienced driver handle the pot-holed road while you admire spectacular views of the Andes Mountains. This small-group tour is limited to just 13 people or fewer—the perfect size for enjoying your picnic lunch and a bottle of wine upon arrival.
What to Expect
Begin your tour to Cajon del Maipo with pickup from your central Santiago hotel or alternative pickup point. Then, look out at the scenery as your driver safely makes the 2-hour drive out of the city to Cajon del Maipo at the base of the Andes.

Pass small towns and through Tinoco Tunnel to catch views of the Andes Mountains. Then, stop at the stunningly blue Embalse El Yeso reservoir for a picnic lunch accompanied by wine. Spend free time chatting with your small group of 13 or fewer and taking photos of the view.

Return to Santiago at the end of your tour.

Limited English Speaking Tour Guides, Its a mine- very dusty and sort of dangerous

The view is pretty- once you get there. But be warned- the miners are not happy the tourists are there. So you are on a small gravel road- that you are sharing with dump trucks that are racing by. So while the tour guides ARE...More
