Yes. La Canabina is opened all year round, including weekends and holidays, but they reserve the right to close certain days due to events of force majeure
Entrance is at 7 AM until 6 PM in winter and from 7 AM to 8 PM in summer, from Monday to Sunday.
Paved road ends close to La Canabina entrance gate. From there there is a 1 km unpaved road to reach reception office, road conditions depend on weather conditions (rain and snow can make driving more difficult). Although most vehicles can transit it when it is dry, we suggest driving high cars, preferentially four-wheel drive.
Stop your car just at the end of the paved road. Call us to telephone numbers provided after your reservation. After receiving your phone call the gate will be opened. Road has natural curves, you must drive straight ahead without any deviation in side entrances. Ignore signposts which may make reference to other places, drive straight ahead until you see a small signpost on the left hand which says La Canabina. Go ahead and you will arrive.

Wild fauna is threatened due to domestic animals, since feaces can transmit parasites, the smell from their urine can dispel them and its presence frighten and chase away and even transmit diseases. Remember this is a wild environment and native species habitat. Thank you for understanding.
In order to camp in the foothills, ask directly for areas in which is allowed. If your final destination is the range, ask in advance which places are allowed.
Water is not drinkable. Nevertheless, is clean water from melted ice and can be drunk. Always bring a plastic bottle for refill. Remember not contaminating this valuable resource.
A wrong handling of fire may cause conflagration. Smoke from the campfire is not welcome in a pure air and clear sky environment. Besides campfires leaves an ugly scar in wild environments. In case you want to cook take a gas camping stove or something similar. Given low temperatures consider wearing suitable clothing. Thank you for understanding.
Walkers who enter without guide have just one trail available. It is about 8 kms long and get to the foothill. Afterwards there is a not well marked trail which enters into Las Hualtatas gorge. Access to any other area without marked trails is not allowed
