Itinerary

Met upon arrival in Santiago, and transfer to hotel. This afternoon get acquainted with the sights on a panoramic city tour, then perhaps try the gourmet delights in Bellavista and Providencia.

Tour to the World Heritage city of Valparaiso. A steep and bustling maze of lanes and alleys hiding fabulous architecture and the finest street art. Ride a funicular to the top and admire the view from the other side of the Pacific.

Fly to Puerto Montt and transfer to Puerto Varas along the shores of Lake Llanquihue, framed by four beautiful volcanoes.

The spectacular 12hrs Lakes Crossing transfers you between Chile and Argentina via a series of boats and buses. The trip starts by passing close to the perfectly conical Osorno volcano, and a visit to Petrohue falls. Cruise across Andean lakes surrounded by snow covered peaks and drive through thick forests with superb views. Drop off at your hotel in Bariloche.

Morning tour along the picturesque ‘Circuito Chico’, probably the world’s most scenic city tour. See why the view from Campanero Hill over lake Nahuel Huapi and the Andes is justifiably regarded by National Geographic as one of the finest on the planet.

Fly south to El Calafate, the Glacier Capital of Patagonia. It’s a lovely little town on the shores of Lago Argentina, where flamingoes are often found.

Tour to the colossal Perito Moreno Glacier. The most accessible advancing glacier in the world, it creaks and groans as it pushes forward. Stroll along the walkways and take a front row seat to watch and listen as the regular ice calving, thunderously crash into the water below.

Early pick up from your hotel to be driven across the border to your chosen lodge in or near the breathtaking Torres Del Paine National Park for your 3 nightall-inclusive stay.

Choose from the wide range of guided excursions in and around the park. There are short walks and long treks, horses and bikes to ride, or spa treatments if you want to simply unwind.

Be driven south to Punta Arenas, for a final night.(B)

Trip ends after breakfast. If you are continuing south your cruise operator will transfer you to the airport, otherwise we will arrange it for you.
