A hike with views of snow-drizzled peaks, followed by soaks in thermal pools — can you picture a more perfect day? On this small-group tour led by an expert guide, drive through the breathtaking canyon of Cajón de Maipo at the Andes mountains. Then undertake a 5-hour medium-level hike through El Morado Natural Monument to enjoy a glacier-side lunch, or trek through a similar valley in the Andes and gaze in awe near the massive Andean summits and lagoon while you eat. Unwind at the hot springs of Baños Colinas. Round-trip hotel transport from Santiago is included.

My husband and I had a tour with Martin and we saw some of the most beautiful scenery we’ve seen while traveling. Martin was very accommodating and devoted to making us have as an enjoyable experience as possible! It’s expensive but worth it.
