Kayaking in Laguna Del Inca was incredible! My tour guide was Frank, and I enjoyed his company for the day. He was prompt, spoke good English (my Spanish is terrible), and is an all around good guy. He gave me the option of kayaking in a single or a double with him. Even though I am experienced at kayaking, I chose the double so that I could take lots of pics and just enjoy the scenery. The highlight was us being the only ones on the water!! Absolutely beautiful place — pictures don’t do it justice!! It is a pricey excursion for a solo traveller, but I thought it was worth it for the unique experience of kayaking in the Andes. The drive to Portillo is very scenic as well (take Dramamine if you get motion sickness — lots of switchbacks).

Great day out riding.

The Levo was much appreciated on the long climbs, descended like a demon too.

Matias went above and beyond helping me, from answering questions to actually getting in the location to get the bike.

Absolutely will be back.

This is a challenging hike in the Andes. You could see various birds including eagles as well as lots of flowers and cacti. The guide was patient and able to support an inexperienced hiker.

Awesome hike! Our guide, Martin, was super friendly, on time, and brought everything we needed (waters, hiking poles, and snacks). He knew the hike like the back of his hand and also pointed out a few cool birds and flora. The hike going up is easy to moderate, but going down it can be moderate to difficult so just be prepared to take it slow. Highly recommend this one - amazing views the entire way. Thanks Martin! Gracias po

Definitely intense and best done with proper hiking shoes. I had legs cramps while going down but Martin was extremely patient and took great care of me. Had great conversations with him along the way. Great day out.

Thanks for your feedback Ee-Yong! We are glad you enjoyed this tour. The Andes Lookout hike has loose gravel, so we always encourage to bring hiking shoes in good state (not flat sole). We also give hiking poles to all of our costumers in order to help to keep balance. We hope to see you soon in new trips with us!

Challenging and amazing at the same time. Martin my guide has fantastic local knowledge. A real must for anyone keen to experience the Andes all within a short drive from Santiago.

I wanted to leave a review because I absolutely loved this hike, but I feel like the other reviews paint it as either too easy or too difficult. It is a challenging hike and I wish I had worn hiking boots, especially for the way down. I also wanted to mention that my friend is afraid of heights and she did not enjoy it as much as the rest of us. However, it was fun and the views at the top are absolutely astonishing. Be prepared to take the full 6 hours and if you are not a regular hiker, you will likely be a little sore later. Our guide, Martin, was awesome. He was encouraging and helpful, and made sure we safely navigated the more difficult terrain. I'm so happy we booked this tour and I was very happy that we had such an experienced guide with us! I would definitely do this again!

I loved this feedback and I really appreciate it. Thanks for your nice and accurate review Mandy. I think It's important to say all of our trips are private, so if people don't feel confortable you can always turn back any time. One of our values is safety first and the guides are very aware about that. Also because its private and small group you can always go at your own pace. Yeah it's very important ware hiking shoes. In summer the gravel is loose and hiking shoes have a much better grip than conventional urban shoes. We believe its hard to say a hike its easy or difficult because we think that's subjective. We give numbers like total ramp and distance so then you have objective parameters but for most of the people this is a challenging hike. Most of the trail goes over a wide ridge but some people could feel exposure in a few points. We encourage people go out of their confort zone (always under their skills parameters) and find some adventure. Kind regards Matias
