This evening is at your leisure and we recommend enjoying pizza at one of the many restaurants along with a good bottle of malbec, the area’s speciality.
Day 2: Andes Mountains tour
Early departure from Mendoza City to the west to enter the Andes mountain road toward the border of Chile. Along the way, we’ll admire, among other attractions, the superb view of Mount Aconcagua, the highest peak in the Americas . We’ll also visit Chacras de Coria, Potrerillos Valley, Uspallata Valley, Penitentes Ski Resort, the striking Inca’s Bridge (a natural formation of rock and sulphur, which gives it its golden colour), and the border village of Las Cuevas. Weather conditions permitting, we’ll drive up to 4,200 metres above sea level where the statue of Christ the Redeemer is located on the border with Chile. We’ll return to the hotel in the late afternoon.
