Santuario de la Naturaleza is a quiet place just under the Los Andes mountains, a place where you can access by car (don't need a jeep). You can bring your own food and make a picnic. There are many tables and even barbecue at some points. The place is mainly clean. The river is extremely clear and cold. There some... More

It's hard to believe you are so close to Santiago. This nature reserve has an abundance of trails hugging a few valleys in the pre-cordillera hills just to the east of the city. You access the park via el Camino del Cajon in the comuna of Lo Barnechea. It took us 45mins to get here from Manquehue metro as a... More

We have been to this park twice now to enjoy some casual 'hiking.' The proximity to the city is perfect as you could easily head out here for a half day if you have other things on your agenda for the rest of the day. There are great trails to follow, taking you along a nice valley. Both times we... More

Nice outlook of the central mountain range of Santiago. To do some trekking, picnic, barbeque or just a walk.

Nature park, very close to the city, but totally not noticable.. After the entrance (fee of 3000 pesos) you come to a parking, and there is a big BBQ area near the river. Perfect spot to spend a day in summer. From there you can walk. There are several paths, but not indicated (just one signboard with a map near... More

This was so much unexpected fun! We rented a car, with a GPS, SET THE LOCATION & in 20 short minutes we were on a dirt road traveling up the foot hills of the Andes. It was fantastic few hours, with all kinds of trails leading, some leading to the river where you can take a quick dip to cool... More

Most people (read: locals) go here to walk around for while, 300 meters from where the car is parked, near a BBQ spot, and they think they are having a serious outdoor experience, but I recommend to get up on the bike, head back towards the entrance towards the abounded house, and then pedal up the dirt road and follow...

Just about 30 minutes from Santiago center, this place offer a fun and relaxing outing for the whole family. There are walk paths available, either skirting the steep Andean mountain, or along the river gorge. You will need good shoes. First time we took our 3yr and 4yr for the walk and they enjoyed it. They return many times afterwards.... More

Nice place to bring your lunch and get one of the BBQ spots and spend a relax day beside the river. There are cool little paths to go for walks. After the sun sets it can be quite cold, as is in the middle of the mountains. You can only get there by car. The entry fee is about CLP2.500... More
