Tour description provided by Viator

Enjoy following Charles Darwin's footsteps on this intermediate trek up to a halfway point of Cerro La Campana, The Bell Mountain. Your multi-lingual guide will provide information and support along the way. You'll learn a little bit about the mining history of La Campana and the struggle between the indigenous and colonial settlers. We will enjoy a small picnic at the mine before making our way back down to the base of the National Park.
Your tour starts by coming to the ranch on your own, by car or public transport. Pick up can be arranged at the Bus Terminal in Villa Alemana, only 1.5 hours from Santiago Bus Terminal. From there, we'll drive to Limache and take a shuttle to the National Park La Campana. We'll start at the base of La Campana, provide a brief introduction of the Historical Park and the way we'll hike for the day. While on the tour, your guide will provide some information on the local flora and fauna. We'll hike about 2 hours up to the mine where enjoy some fruit overlooking the incredible views from the mountain. Though this tour is our half-way hike, it will still challenge most hikers and reward with scenic views. We'll then make our way back via the shuttle toward the closest terminal.
