Not specified


1 Day

All year

Open to everyone

First Time


This 1-day Bosque de los Brujos hike is an easy trek available for all the family in which you'll get to know an ancient Andean forest.

The Bosque de los Brujos is a unique forest in the Region Metropolitana of Chile, only an hour east of Santiago. It has a one of a kind native vegetation found only in this part of Chile.

And my plan is to guide you to a pleasant and simple hike, with very few slopes. So it's a perfect plan to bring your kids and get them to enjoy nature. There are eight small streams to cross, but none of them are difficult. And during all the walk you'll have a beautiful view of the Cerro Ramón massif.

Due to the low altitude of the path it's rare to find it with snow, so it's an activity that we can do year round. But it's especially beautiful in winter and early spring, when the surrounding mountains are full of snow.

If this 1-day Bosque de los Brujos hike sounds like a good plan, send me a request. I’ll be happy to be your guide! I know this area really well and will take you to all my favorite spots. 

Also, don’t hesitate to check out my canyoning program in this same area: 1-day Canyoning trip in Cajón del Maipo.

About the guide

UIAGM/IFMGA Mountain Guide from Chile

Mountain guide and instructor from the Chilean Andinism Federation (FEACH) and certified Wilderness First Responder.

I’ve opened several climbing routes in Chile, and was one of the first and very few Chileans to summit Cerro Torre, Fitz Roy, Paine Grande and Torres del Paine.

I climbed almost all the technical mountain in Cajón del Maipo, in Central Chile, and did some of the most important routes in Yosemite, Indian Creek and Patagonia.

And regarding ski mountaineering, I skied down Mount Illimani and Huayna Potosí in Bolivia, and Cerro Castillo, Morado Norte and Sur in Chile.

Nicolas is an excellent guide, with incredible mountaineering knowledge and technique (which was particularly worthwhile during our expedition when we encountered harsh winter conditions). His english is also very good. In short, I recommend this mountain guide.

Nico was an incredible guide. I wanted to ski the canaletas in Cerro Arenas and he was excited to take me there. He knows Cajon del Maipo like the back of his hand. Afterall, this is his backyard. He has spent decades skiing, climbing and exploring this region and his knowledge of the terrain and weather is very impressive. His english is good as well, and he is a really nice guy on top of all that. 10/10 would recommend to anyone looking for a great ski mountaineering adventure.

My trip with Nicolas was perfect. He catered to my climbing preference and the hot springs at the end of day was exactly what we needed. I would definitely do it again! Thanks Nico for my first experience in climbing in Chile!

The guide did not know the route. We spent a lot of time trying to find the route. The climbing itself was good.

The trip was awesome. Our guide Nicolas was extremely knowledgeable about the terrain and very helpful. He is an expert guide. The sights were beautiful. The office quickly responded to our request and questions and provided excellent information.

I was really disappointed with Casa de Guias. It was not a terrible experience because Casa de Guias had found a wonderful guide and assistant although they did not know them (allmountain guide). As to Explore -Share I don´t intent to buy anything. I will write a full description of what happened by e-mail.

The trip was really nice and I enjoyed the climbing a lot!
