Full description
On this trekking private tour, enjoy an adventure in the mountains in one of the most well-preserved parks in the Andes: Yerba Loca Nature Sanctuary, nestled in a magnificent valley. Admire pine trees, blue rivers, and extraordinary wildlife, such as eagles and Chilean condors. Breathe in the clean mountain air and admire fantastic views, especially of Cerro La Paloma, which has snow on its peak year-round. Explore Villa Paulina base camp or go with your guide on a 2-hour valley hike. You can also cross a glacier-sourced river barefoot. Then, enjoy delicious, traditional Chilean food and drinks such as 'empanadas' (meat or cheese pastries) and 'mote con huesillo' (a sweet non-alcoholic drink with dried peaches).

Great experience. Awesome hike. We had a great time with Sean. He is very friendly and kind. We learned a lot about local life, the country and Santiago of course. We greatly appreciated the stop at the craft market to enjoy a typical meal. I recommend this excursion and if you have the chance to do it with Sean, you will not be disappointed.
