Enjoy a day of beautiful views and relaxation in this hike to the Baños Colinas Hot Springs near Santiago Chile! The day begins with a drive from Santiago to the Maipo Valley (Cajon del Maipo), about an hour and a half outside of the city. As you exit the city, the buildings will be replaced by rising valleys on either side, covered in green trees. Once you turn up into the mountains, the view of the valley will get better and better, until you reach the trailhead, where you will get out and begin your hike to the hot springs!
The hike takes you through a beautiful valley, with the Andes surrounding you on all sides! In the winter, the mountains will have snow-capped peaks, and in the summer, the sun will shine bright and the air will be fresh. After a little less than two hours of hiking, you will reach the Baños Colinas hot springs, where you will get a chance to soak in the springs and to eat something (the operator will provide some snacks, but we recommend packing a little lunch for yourself). After relaxing for a while and taking in the views, you will put your shoes back on and return back through the valley the way you came.
The trek is mostly flat – the only significant uphill is a five minute climb at the end of the first half of the hike, to take you up to the hot springs. At the hot springs, there is a small building that is technically a bathroom and changing area, but it is heavily neglected, so expect something more in line with a small abandoned shack, than a proper changing room. There are walls and stalls, however, so you can find some privacy if you want to change into your bathing suit once you get up to the hot springs.
Duration: 07:00 am – 18:00 (6:00 pm) (you will receive an exact pick up or meeting time once you book, as exact pick up time depends on location of lodging in the city)
