Description - What to expect

Take a private Andes hiking tour and enjoy an adventure in pristine mountains in one of the most popular parks in the Andes, the Yerba Loca Nature Sanctuary, nestled in a magnificent valley. Admire pine tree forests, blue glacier-water rivers, and look out for eagles and Chilean condors flying high in the sky.
