Arriving in your own car
If traveling to Portillo in your own vehicle, follow these directions: From Santiago, follow Américo Vespucio towards the north. This will take you down “La Piramide” and past the Cuidad Empresarial. Exit to the “Los Libertadores” highway (just after the entrance to the Mall Plaza Norte). Follow the highway towards the city of Los Andes. Before getting to Los Andes, take the bypass to follow the international route to the east through the mountains towards the city of Mendoza, Argentina. Portillo is approximately 5 km from the Chile / Argentina border. We recommend you obtain chains for your vehicle in the case that they become necessary. At the Guardia Vieja road check you may be asked by Carabineros de Chile (police) if you have them. After the police station there is a Toll Plaza, advise them that you are headed to Portillo and you will not be required to pay the toll.
