Overview
A remote, majestic and quiet place at the foot of the Andes Mountains. Baños Colina is located about 100 kms (62 miles) away from Santiago and at an altitude of 2.500 meters (8.200 ft) . The waters of these natural pools can reach temperatures up to 50°C (122 F°) and are arranged as outdoor terraces, thanks to the calcareous deposits and the activity of San Jose Volcano of 5.856 meters (19.200 ft). Enjoy a relaxing and therapeutic hot spring bath in the middle of the Andes, after a stunning 4 kms (2,4 miles) hike to the view point of the San Jose Volcano volcanic complex.

  • Guides carry water, snacks, and lunch—leaving you free to walk with ease

  • Small-group tour means you’re not just another tourist

  • Hotel pickup and drop-off included for easy transport
What to Expect
Get ready for your tour to Cajon del Maipo from Santiago by wearing comfortable layers and good hiking shoes; be ready for morning hotel pickup.
After driving to a trailhead, follow your guide on a 3.5-mile (6 kilometer) hike through the Andes to a lookout point 8,200 feet (2,500 meters) above sea level.
Though the trek is challenging, your guides never rush you and keep you entertained with information about the ecosystem as you hike. Your guides also carry backpacks with snacks and water so you don’t have to, and they make you a picnic lunch to eat while you admire views from the summit.
After descending, drive to the thermal water pools at Banos Colina. Natural pools feel luxurious after a challenging hike (and when enjoyed with an included glass of Chilean wine and tapas).
Get dropped off at your Santiago hotel at the end of the tour.
Please note: This tour is of medium difficulty and intended for people in good physical condition between 12 and 70 years old. Those with asthma, heart problems, obesity, or a surgical operation in the past six months should not attempt the trek. Tour may change due to weather conditions and is only available from October to May.

Hot springs have a nice view. The pools themselves are ok and have different temperatures. The facilities were being worked on while we were there and hopefully will be better shortly.

Hey Jeff! Yes they are working on it, but its an outside provider or us. Weve been working with them as a local community, despite there are improvements and achievements. Its a process itself! Best regards! Coti
