Tour Description*

As we leave Santiago towards our destination 58 km southeast, on the way to the Cajon del Maipo.

During the trip towards the start of the Mirador de Cóndores trekking you will be imbued with the local culture, history, geography and the charisma of our guides. . This trekking is along an attractive path that takes us Mirador de Cóndores, a viewpoint in the upper area of ​​some large rocky farellones, which owes its name to that in this place you will have a very high probability of being able to spot condors, the non-marine bird largest in the world. The route is suitable for the whole family, through sectors of native vegetation typical of the area, such as peumos, liters, thorns, cacti or maitenes.

  • Our first stop will be in the town of San Jose de Maipo, a small and picturesque city, where we will have a delicious typical breakfast (included in the tour) that you will enjoy in a striking and characteristic local area. Breakfast includes a rich kneaded bread, an egg dish and a natural juice. After breakfast we continue to continue our adventure.

  • On the way we will meet the towns of Los Maitenes and El Alfalfal, where we can follow and admire the Colorado River, which accompanies us throughout the route. These two beautiful locations will make you understand and feel what it is like to live in the middle of the Andes, and then, to reach the beginning of our destiny.
  • Already in the Alfalfal sector we find the beginning of trekking, in this place we park and prepare for the ascent. In this place we will make a safety talk and some exercises that will prepare us for the activity. Concluded this we begin our adventure towards Mirador de Cóndores. Since the beginning of the trekking we begin to appreciate the beauty of the mountain range, from its flora, fauna, geological formation and much more, which the guides will help you to interpetrate so that you know the environment more deeply.

  • At 2 and a half hours of ascent we will arrive at our destination, the Mirador de Cóndores, a magical place, since it is a rocky conformation that allows us to have a spectacular panoramic view of the Andes Mountains, where you can take spectacular photos. In this place usually condors and black eagles establish their nests. Due to this, it is relatively frequent to observe the overflight of these great birds at a very short distance. Here you just have to contemplate and be surprised by the views and planned of the condors, huge and capricious.

  • At the top of the viewpoint we will enjoy a delicious snack to recharge energy and then begin the descent which will take us about 2 hours. Upon arriving at the base they will be waiting for us with a rich picnic with typical products of the area and of course accompanied by a good glass of Chilean wine.

This and much more is what is waiting for you in this magical adventure in the Andes Mountains.
