We didn't expect to go to Chile, so I wasn't able to book this trip until the day before, and it could not have been easier. I used my phone's wifi and signed up through their website. They confirmed everything with a personal email and answered all of my questions promptly. They picked us up the next morning around 8:30 (came to the Hostel's front desk and asked for us) and we left for the mountains. On the way, we got food from a store in a small town. They helped us complete the order (we don't speak any spanish) and made a great recommendation (get a sandwich with homemade bread, mountain goat cheese, guacamole, tomato, and ham). We then drove the rest of the way to the mountain. The van was full and we met a lot of new people on the trip. When we got there, we started hiking into and through the valley. The views were breathtaking. The hike ends at a small lake at the foot of a huge mountain. There, we ate our delicious sandwiches and took a short nap. Then, we started heading back. On the way back down the mountain, our tour guide, Juan, played his flute for us. It was amazing. There was a feast waiting for us at the cars, including several different cheeses and local foods. After indulging in that, we went to the hot springs. They were really relaxing and a great end to the day. I HIGHLY recommend that you go on this trip if you are in Chile for any amount of time. It was well worth the cost.
