Small-Group Cajón del Maipo Full-Day Tour and Picnic
From US$46.50
Overview
Though undeniably beautiful, the Embalse El Yeso reservoir in Cajon del Maipo is notoriously difficult to access. Visit as part of a guided tour from Santiago to let an experienced driver handle the pot-holed road while you admire spectacular views of the Andes Mountains. This small-group tour is limited to just 13 people or fewer—the perfect size for enjoying your picnic lunch and a bottle of wine upon arrival.
What to Expect
Begin your tour to Cajon del Maipo with pickup from your central Santiago hotel or alternative pickup point. Then, look out at the scenery as your driver safely makes the 2-hour drive out of the city to Cajon del Maipo at the base of the Andes.

Pass small towns and through Tinoco Tunnel to catch views of the Andes Mountains. Then, stop at the stunningly blue Embalse El Yeso reservoir for a picnic lunch accompanied by wine. Spend free time chatting with your small group of 13 or fewer and taking photos of the view.

Return to Santiago at the end of your tour.

Great tour

So glad we made this trip. Well organised and our guide/driver Christian was excellent. So many people there, but it didn't deter from the beauty of the landscape. I would recommend taking water with you as we were advised to buy some when we stopped...More

All the fun for half the price

Great tour. Guide (Christian?) picked us up within 10 minutes of promised time and was very informative on the tour. I was very glad he was driving and was not in a rental car when we reached the wet dirt mountainous roads. The picnic was...More

I think about 6pm. Best to ask your operator about airport drop off, don't think they would go there.
