Escape the heat and bustle of Santiago de Chile in summer when you take this fantastic trip to Farellones and Valle Nevado. On our excursion into the Andes mountains, you will discover the grand variety of wildlife which comes to life in this area when the sun starts to melt the snow.
Farellones and Valle Nevado Trip
After collecting you your hotel, we will leave the Chilean capital behind and head into the Andes mountain range to visit the Farellones and Valle Nevado. Although these areas are famous for their ski resorts, on this tour we will discover the charms hidden beneath the thick blanket of snow that covers these peaks during winter.
Our first stop is Farellones, a traditional village nestled deep among the mountains which formed part of the ancient Inca road. From here we will admire the magnitude of the majestic Andean mountains and discover the impressive native flora and fauna. If you look up to the sky, you may even spot elegant Andean condors hovering high above.
During the summer, mountaineers and cyclists use the winter ski lift to ascend the mountains. Those who would like to explore the bare slopes by bike can stay for the remainder of the day in Farellones.
Those who prefer to continue exploring the Andes range can accompany us to our next destination, Valle Nevado - South America's most exclusive ski and snowboard resort. During the summer, the snow melts away to reveal delightful tracks and routes that led to spectacular lagoons and lakes. The nature trails here are the highest in Chile and perfect for adventurous cyclists.
After visiting Valle Nevado, we will return to Farellones to collect those who chose to remain and explore that area. Then we begin our return journey to Santiago where we will drop you off back at your hotel.
