ITINERARY INSPIRATION

CLASSIC CHILE

To travel the length of Chile is to enjoy a procession of different – and often contrasting – experiences.
CHILE, SOUTH AMERICA

ABOUT THE ITINERARY

From the colorful markets and lively streets of the capital, Santiago, you’ll find yourself travelling to the arid dryness of the Atacama region with its fierce deserts, dazzling salt flats, active geysers and dramatic beauty.

In between you’ll take in the unique history and culture of Chiloé Island, and fly into Punta Arenas for a memorable experience in Torres del Paine National Park, in the heart of Chilean Patagonia. And the culmination of your Chilean adventure could see you relaxing at one of the most historic wineries in the country, in the beautiful Maipo Valley.

Whilst away you will stay in three beautiful Tierra hotels, wonderfully positioned for exploring the surrounding area and with their own expert guides and vehicles to show case you the best of each area (and some ‘off the beaten track’ experiences).

Classic Chile looks to showcase some of the best of the country, whilst throwing in some lesser explored areas like the archipelago of Chiloé.

PUNTA ARENAS

From Torres del Paine you will be driven back to Punta Arenas, where a night is spent before flying to the Chilean Lake District.

Punta Arenas is the main city in Chilean Patagonia and is steeped in history. It sits alongside the Straits of Magellan and is a strange mix of wool-boom mansions and port renovations. Nowadays it is one of the country’s main ports and is the main access point to Tierra del Fuego and Torres del Paine. The afternoon can be spent exploring the towns plazas and museums, which include the fascinating maritime museum.

Chiloé is an island archipelago, home to pastoral landscapes and known for its iconic wooden churches built by Jesuit missionaries in the 17th and 18th centuries.
