Hiking-Half Day

Sunset Hiking: Hiking - Half Day - Easy

Take a short night hike through native forest. You will witness spectacular views of Santiago and the Andes peaks.

Located just at 40 minutes from the down town work center in Providencia, our short trail starts and follow a magic native forest (sclerophyllous forest). From the summit you will find unobstructed views of the city and the Andes.

Depending on the season we will enjoy amazing sunsets, or twilights in the spring and summer, or see the moon over the mountains, the star-filled sky, and beautiful city lights in the fall and winter
