About

Recommended for:
City | History & culture | Natural world | Spa

Between Patagonia’s glacial wonders, Atacama’s rust-red deserts and Valparaíso’s tumbledown beauty, this country-spanning tour takes in the very best of Chile’s landscapes and culture. You’ll begin with the capital’s colonial façades, bohemian neighbourhoods and foodie markets before flying south to Patagonia. Here, gourmet meals and a lakeside spa give way to guided treks and bike rides to explore national parks framed by glorious Andean peaks. Then, stopping by the capital once more, you’ll fly north to the canyons, dunes and salt lakes of the otherworldly Atacama before seaside Valparaíso’s historic hillside neighbourhoods bring your holiday to a fittingly colourful conclusion. 

Day by day itinerary

Day 1
Depart UK

Arrive at your departure airport where included VIP lounge access will see you begin your holiday in relaxed style. Then, board your overnight flight to Chile’s capital. 

Day 2
Santiago

Arriving into Santiago, a private transfer will bring you to the neo-classical delights of your luxury hotel. Based in bohemian Lastarria, you’ll be surrounded quaint by wine bars, artists’ galleries and atmospheric alleyways made for exploring, while back at the hotel, French-style gourmet dining, a restful spa and a rooftop pool are waiting to welcome you home. In the afternoon, a city tour will take you further afield, beginning with the citywide views from Santa Lucia Hill, followed by the grand, 18th-century architecture of París-Londres. Then, after calling in to experience the Central Market’s colourful bustle, you’ll head for the food stalls of La Vega Chica to try a Cola de Mono – Chile’s version of a White Russian.

Stay: The Singular, Santiago (Deluxe)

Days 3-5
Patagonia

A private transfer will whisk you back to Santiago Airport for your flight hop south to Punta Arenas where, on arrival, you’ll be met for the drive north to your luxury lodge near Puerto Natales – the Singular Patagonia. Perched on the shores of Last Hope Sound, and with the cragged peaks of the Andes as its backdrop, this former cold-storage plant – now a National Historic Monument – will serve as your luxury base for three days of wilderness exploration. Choose from a programme of included excursions that range from guided treks, bike rides and adventures by horseback to kayak paddles and even fly-fishing trips. There’s also the option for full-day jaunts to the Torres del Paine’s famous granite spires, while the fjord cruise that departs from the hotel's pier is not to be missed. And, at the end of each day, you’ll return to included, wine-paired meals and indulgent treatments at the lakeside spa.

Days 7-9
Atacama Desert

A private transfer and a flight will bring you north to the Atacama Desert and your next luxury lodge. Set in the shadow of Pukará de Quitor ruins and surrounded by the Atacama’s rust-red landscapes, it’s a stunning counterpoint to Patagonia’s glaciated beauty. At the lodge itself, no fewer than six outdoor pools look out across the Catarpe Valley as outdoor lounges and sprawling gardens set the scene for spa treatments and gourmet dining inspired by the flavours of the Mediterranean. In the daytime, included excursions will bring you between the region’s flamingo-dotted lakes, spurting geysers and moon-like valleys while at night, you’ll be introduced to the sheer beauty of the Atacama’s star-filled sky from your lodge’s open-air observatory.

Stay: Alto Atacama Desert Lodge & Spa, San Pedro de Atacama (Deluxe)

Meals: B L D

Day 10
Valparaíso

Returning south, again with private transfers and an included flight, you’ll arrive back into the capital for your drive west to Valparaíso. Here, on a hillside overlooking the Pacific, your boutique hotel’s spa, swimming pool, hammam and hot tub ensure a fittingly decadent end to your holiday. But it’s not all rest and relaxation, as an included private half-day tour will introduce you to Valparaíso’s famously colourful sights. Begin with the downtown area’s tree-lined plazas and bustling waterfront before one of the city’s 16 funicular railways brings you to brightly painted houses and panoramic views.

Stay: Palacio Astoreca, Valparaíso (Superior)

Meals: B

Days 11-12
