Getting There


Transportation Services from Santiago, Chile


We are able to book van transportation as part of your package to El Colorado from Santiago airport or your Santiago hotel to your desired El Colorado Hotel with our partner Santiago Adventures. We do not recommend driving yourself to El Colorado from Santiago as the road up and down to El Colorado is one of the narrowest, steepest roads to get to a ski resort in the world. If you really have to do it recommend doing it in the light.

Because of the difficulty of this road, on weekends and  holidays, all travel on the road from Santiago to El Colorado is one-way only, alternating morning and evening. This allows the narrow road to safely accommodate the morning and afternoon traffic flow.
