Explore Villavicencio on the Andes Adventure tour. On this tour, we leave the city behind going north-west through the old road that takes us to Chile. We’ll pass through Villavicencio Natura Reserve and we will plunge into the pre Andes Mountain Range where we’ll discover its biodiversity.
Andes adventure through Villavicencio natural reserve
We’ll visit an historical Site “Canota” that will remind us of San Martin’s army. As part of his strategy, he splitted into wings to cross the Andes way to Chile during the liberation odyssey in 1817.
Later we’ll enter the Villavicencio Natural Reserve. Here we’ll visit the emblematic Termas de Villavicencio Hotel. We’ll walk and see the beautiful gardens that surround it. From here, the road starts going up along the slopes of the mountain known as “Caracoles“. It contains 365 curves until we reach the highest point of the road at Paramillos (3000 masl). Here we will get amazing views of the snow capped Andes and The Aconcagua’s north face.
That is how between archaeology and history plus the sudden presence of native wildlife, we will go over the second part of this tour on the way to the green valley of Uspallata.
After lunchtime, we will take the famous Route 7. Enjoying the transition of landescapes between the Frontal and Main ranges of the Andes, Aconcagua Provincial Park will be our next stop.
Upon our arrival to the park we’ll go on a short trekking through the Horcones. There, we will connect with this unique nature environment framed by the majestic Aconcagua. Finally we’ll pass by Potrerillos reservoir to take a couple of more pictures. Join us!
