NATURAL MONUMENT

SAN FRANCISCO GLACIER

 

Come to discover the wonders and secrets of the winter in the Andean Mountains!

We invite you to live a real adventure behind the mountains that surround Santiago. Starting from Baños Morales, in Cajón del Maipo, we will head into the beautiful Rio Morales valley with the use of snow shoes (Alpine touring ski available for rent).

Silence and the breathtaking views of El Morado (16.600 ft) will be our companions as we get to the frozen Morales Lagoon, right on the base of the San Francisco Glacier.
