1. From Santiago: Valle Nevado and Farellones Small Group Tour

Following pick-up from your hotel (available from the districts of Providencia, Las Condes, Vitacura and Santiago Centro) at around 07:30 to 08:30 AM, depart Santiago and journey to the beautiful ski resort of Farellones. Nestled in a small valley in the Andes Mountains, Farellones was the first ski center to open in Chile and continues to attract skiers of all abilities.

During the winter, benefit from the chance to stop to rent snow gear (at your own expense), and learn more about the historical aspects of how this little community works during the winter season.

Then, go to El Colorado Ski Center to hit the slopes, and take part in activities such as zip-lining, tubing, riding a cable car and snow sledding. If you prefer, relax in the lodge and enjoy lunch (at your own expense) overlooking the snow-capped mountains. Return to Santiago and get dropped of at approximately 06:00 PM.

The driver's name is Orlando and he was very polite and cautious when driving. He also told us curious things about the city of Santiago. I can not say the same about the person who communicates with customers because they did not answer my questions about WhatsApp (it may have been due to national holidays and holidays), but within the service said they answered questions about WhatsApp. And then when I called the phone the deal was very hostile, a shame because the ride is very nice and the driver was a divine throughout the tour.

It is a very nice tour and ideal to know beautiful places near Santiago. The guide is very friendly, all the way he is explaining things about the trip, historical facts of Chile, and even making jokes, so he is very entertaining. Already in Valle Nevado you have the opportunity to walk through the snowy mountains and contemplate the landscape. I recommend it.

Very good tour! Despite the lack of snow (because of the season itself) it was incredible. The guide very knowledgeable about everything, super kind and helpful. I recommend.

Excellent tour, the timing is ideal and you can have a lot of fun in Farellones, while Valle Nevado is more for photos and a quick stop.

Punctual, very friendly, very good disposition and clear in the explanations
