If you are coming to Santiago you can’t miss the opportunity to spend a full-day with your guide visiting the Andes Mountains. Stop and explore the Valle Nevado Ski Center, considered one of the best of South America, containing the longest snow slopes in the continent. Also, visit the town of Farellones, (located 2340 meters above sea level), a place that enchants the visitor with its shelter type romantic installations made of stone, making it an ideal place for meditation and relaxation.
You will be picked up from your hotel or the agreed address in the districts of Providencia, Las Condes, Vitacura and Santiago Center in an air-conditioned van. You will enjoy a scenic drive as you head to the East of the city. After about a 15 minute drive you'll notice the Farellones road begin with the first marvelous views of some of the hills next to the Andes. During the winter, there is a stop for snow clothes rentals if you want to rent some (at your own expense). You'll continue this drive enjoying the landscapes that this part of the valley offers, looking at some of the houses built between the hills.
Farellones is the only town in the central region. You'll travel between the streets and learn about the historical aspects and the lifestyle of this little community. You'll continue to do a panoramic stop at the Colorado Ski Resort, the second most popular ski resort of the central region. After a brief stop, you'll continue on the road again to adventure towards the Valle Nevado Ski Resort. Explore the activities available for you to do there. Please keep in mind that any activities you decide to do are at your own expense and are not included in the price of this tour. Some of the things that you can do at your own expense here is any of the snow sports. You can take the air-conditioned Gondola to see amazing views of the Andes and the Paloma Glacier, or you can enjoy a lunch at one of the 3 different restaurants. You will basically have free time to do whatever you like. Your guide will let you know what time to meet back.
Once you meet your driver in the early evening, you will then be driven back to your hotel in Santiago.
