Atacama Desert | Chile | The Ultimate Travel Company
DAY 1-4

ATACAMA DESERT

Arrive into Santiago international airport, where you will connect onto a short domestic flight to Calama. Calama is the entry-point to Chile’s iconic Atacama Desert. On arrival you will be met by representatives from Awasi Atacama and transferred 1 1/4 hours to the hotel.

In the heart of the oasis town of San Pedro de Atacama is Awasi Atacama. A beautiful hotel built in the style of the traditional adobe buildings which are common in northern Chile. With just 12 private suites and each with their own private guide, service is truly personalised. Unlike other hotels in the area, all activities at Awasi are on a private basis which means you’ll have complete flexibility over what you see and do. On arrival your guide will discuss the different options and together you will come up with a plan for your time in the area. There are a mixture of full-day and half-day excursions to choose from, including a visit to the Valley of Moon and geysers at el Tatio. During full-day activities you can enjoy a delicious picnic lunch, prepared by Awasi’s excellent culinery team. When back at the hotel you can enjoy a spa treatment in your room or relax by the outdoor pool. In the evening enjoy a pisco sour and take in the beautiful night skies on one of Awasi’s stargazing excursions, before a delicious dinner.

TORRES DEL PAINE

Board an early morning flight from Santiago to Puerto Natales, where once again you will be met by representatives from Awasi Patagonia.

After a 2 hour journey you will arrive at Awasi Patagonia. A series of standalone cabins dot the hillside and face the mountains of the Torres del Paine National Park. Although outside the park boundaries, the views from the hotel are some of the most impressive of any hotel in Patagonia. Guests can enjoy wonderful views directly from their own private hot tub or from their beautifully appointed cabin. There is a 5* restaurant in the main lodge, preparing delicious and locally sourced Patagonia cuisine, accompanied by some of South America’s best wines.

Over the next three days you will explore the park and its surroundings with your private Awasi guide. Similar to your time in the Atacama, your guide will discuss the options with you, which include hikes, riding, boat trips and photo safaris. You can hike the famous routes through the French Valley or to the Base of the Towers, or see quieter parts of the park.

Iguazu Falls | Ultimate Travel Company
DAY 13-16

IGUASSU FALLS

Your luxury journey through South America ends at one of its most spectacular attractions – the jaw-dropping waterfalls of Iguassu. A short two hour flight from Buenos Aires and you will arrive into the hot and humid jungle of Iguassu, in north-east Argentina.

On the border between Argentina and Brazil, Iguassu Falls are without doubt one of South America’s star attractions. With your private Awasi guide you’ll have chance to visit both the Argentine and Brazilian side of the Falls, as well as some lesser known areas in the surrounding jungle. Awasi Iguazu is built in the rainforest on the Argentine side of the Falls. Similar in style to Awasi Patagonia, your accommodation is a standalone bungalow, surrounded by nature and with its own private terrace and private plunge pool.

The Argentine side is famous for its walkways and dramatic views from the Devil’s Throat, as well as close-up views of the Falls by boat. The Brazilian side offers tremendous panoramic views, which highlight the sheer number of waterfalls that make up Iguassu. Inside the national park you will see all kinds of wildlife, from toucans and macaws to coatis and black Capuchin monkeys. Away from the national parks, guests of Awasi Iguazu can enjoy some quieter and lesser explored parts of the jungle with their expert guide. Travel through the jungle by 4×4 and spend the afternoon kayaking on one of the many tributaries leading to the Falls with a break for a delicious BBQ on the river bank. For those interested in wildlife, early morning bird watching activities are available but for those wanting to relax at the hotel, the afternoon can be spent with a wine tasting led by Awasi’s award winning sommeliers or relaxing in your villa’s private pool.
