This was the reason we flew to Mendoza - to take the bus to Santiago through the Andes mountains. It was one of the best trips I have ever done. The cost was about USD50.00! This included a light lunch and afternoon tea, served by one of the drivers. Bus travel in Argentina is fantastic. Double decker bus - huge... More

Explore the Potrerillos Dam, mountain village of Uspallata, the peaks of the Aconcagua, an abandoned train station, enjoying a gourmet lunch with wine at Las Cuevas and so many great things that guests...

If you like nature, hicking and are tired of the tour that take you to big shopping centers, this is the place for you. The only danger is that once you see the pollution over Santiago, you won't want to go back.

We visited in Summer and took the chairlift to the top (which you have to pay for), to the next level (around 3,000+ metres). The view was incredible. It was 31 degrees C, in Santiago,You will need sunscrean, a hat and maybe a light jacket on the mountain, as the cold wind is strong.. There are masses of colourful wild... More
