FAQs: Hiking in Chile

What should I know about Hiking Chile?

Chile is a country in South America known for tall mountains and long rivers. It borders the Pacific Ocean to the west and Argentina to the east. It also shares a border with Peru and Bolivia in the north. Its unique geographic shape lends itself to a compelling history, including a biodiversity and network of ecosystems that are the rare byproduct of its longitudinal range. Santiago serves as a major transportation hub in the center of the country, with many exciting programs taking place further to the north and south. The Andes Mountains on the border with Argentina serve as a hiker’s playground. The arid north offers a very different trek than the other elevated programs throughout central Chile and further south to the glaciated parts of the country.

What people are saying about Hiking | Chile



Great experience ..... thank you for the great trip. I’m coming back to Chile.



The trip was great.  Christian was an excellent guide.





The trip was a great experience with a wonderful view! However, unfortunately the tour description does not fit with the actual tour. There was no breakfast with acclimatisation and the duration was shorter. Most important the tour was not guided by Christian, but by some of his employes which did not speak English so we didn't get much explanations except some fragments that we understood in Spanish. Therefore we were a litlle disappointed concerning the guide of this tour.



This is an easy assent! I ended up paying $200 for a two hour experience and an apple and piece of chocolate ( lunch 😳) If you plan on doing this hike which I highly recommend, don’t book it with these guys - total rip off!! You can go with a group for about $70 if you book locally from San Pedro! It’s a beautiful view from the summit! It’s not even hard to get there ( they drive you most of the way!) My guide was lovely, great chat, nice person but trust me $200 is a massive massive massive rip off for this ‘experience’
