Glacier Hike at El Morado Natural Monument from Santiago
From US$110.00
Overview

Embark on a thrilling 9-mile guided hike through Chile's spectacular El Morado Natural Monument National Park. Departing from Santiago, your adventure begins in the village of Baños Morales with a steep trek that flattens out as you go. Enjoy stunning natural scenery while making your way toward popular San Francisco Glacier and Morales Glacier pond. Savor a boxed lunch in the mountains, then set back out on your return trek. At the end of your day trip a vehicle will be waiting to whisk you back to your hotel.

What to Expect
Your tour starts with early morning pickup from your hotel in the Santiago area. From there, you will head to El Morado Natural Monument National Park, which is located 93 km from Santiago.

The trek will start in Baños Morales, a mountain village at 1,900 meters above sea level. The first hour of the hike is steep and then it becomes flat. Altitude increase of 600 meters. You will take a trail that leads to the beautiful San Francisco Glacier (2,500 meters high) and the Morales Glacier pond.

During this hike, you will stop at a natural spring of iron-rich carbonated water called “Aguas de Panimávida”. Then, enjoy a box lunch in the mountains and then hike back for about 8 miles to the starting point. You will then board your vehicle back to Santiago and be dropped-off at your hotel. Connect with nature and enjoy this park on a great day trip.

Great views

We took the trek the day before Christmas so the park closed early. Despite this we managed to reach the glacier and return in time. Guide was great and the views glorious.
