Day wise Itinerary

  • Day 1 : Arrival

    You will be met at Santiago Airport and transferred into the capital of Santiago de Chile.

    Check into your hotel in this sophisticated and cosmopolitan city, situated in a valley surrounded by the snow-capped Andes Mountains and the beautiful Chilean Coastal Range.

  • Day 2 : Santiago

    After a morning at leisure, this afternoon enjoy a half day private tour of the modern city of Santiago.

    We start in the downtown area of this relatively compact city, where modern buildings have transformed the landscape, and visit Santa Lucia Hill where the city of Santiago was founded in 1541.

    We continue to the Plaza de Armas in the heart of the old colonial city and bustling Ahumada Boulevard with its many shops, street performers and vendors. Here you will be able to see some beautiful neo-classical buildings – including the 18th century Cathedral of Santiago and the early 19th century Royal Court Palace, which now houses the National History Museum. Also enjoy outside views of the Municipal Offices, the Post Office and the current Presidential Palace, La Moneda. You will have the opportunity to taste a ‘Pisco Sour’, see local handcrafts and walk through some of the more traditional streets of the city, before being dropped off at your hotel.

    Note: Most museums are closed on Mondays.

  • Day 3 : Colchagua Valley

    This morning collect your hire car and drive 2.5-hours to the sleepy town of Santa Cruz in the Colchagua Valley.

    Check into your hotel in the beautiful Chilean Winelands and relax among the vineyards of this famous wine-producing region, situated between the snow-capped Andes and the coast.

  • Day 4 : Colchagua Valley

    At leisure to explore Santa Cruz with its lovely colonial architecture and the lush Colchagua Valley, famous for its red wines - especially Cabernet Sauvignon, Carmenere and Syrah.

    In Santa Cruz you should visit the Plaza de Armas, the pretty main square with its shops, restaurants and casino. The 19th-century church, which was damaged in the 2010 earthquake but has now been restored, faces this square, which hosts an annual 'Fiesta de la Vendimia' to celebrate the grape harvest. Also be sure to visit the Colchagua Museum, which has interesting displays of pre-Columbian art, archaeological items and Andean textiles.

    You can also visit some of the surrounding wineries.

  • Day 5 : Colchagua Valley

    At leisure to explore Santa Cruz with its lovely colonial architecture and the lush Colchagua Valley, famous for its red wines - especially Cabernet Sauvignon, Carmenere and Syrah.

    In Santa Cruz you should visit the Plaza de Armas, the pretty main square with its shops, restaurants and casino.

Also be sure to visit the Colchagua Museum, which has interesting displays of pre-Columbian art, archaeological items and Andean textiles.

    You can also visit some of the surrounding wineries.

  • Day 6 : Torres del Paine National Park

    Drive 2.5-hours to Santiago Airport for your onward flight.

    Arrive at Punta Arenas Airport, collect your hire car and drive 4-hours across the dry scrubland of the Magellanic Steppe to Torres del Paine National Park - a 242,000 hectare UNESCO World Heritage site famous for its soaring mountains, electric-blue lakes and many glaciers.

    You will drive past several large cattle estancias, which are home to the Chilean 'baqueanos' (also called 'huasos' or cowboys), who drink a distinctive caffeine-rich herbal tea known as 'mate', served in a round cup, and love to compete in local rodeos.

    After a short stop in Puerto Natales, a former fishing town situated on the Ultima Esperanza (Last Hope) Sound, continue across the Patagonian Steppe. A variety of rare wildlife can be seen in these pampas (lowlands) including the elegant guanaco, a type of humpless camel related to the llama and the lesser rhea, which is related to the ostrich and emu. You may see giant condors soaring in the thermals, as well as eagles. Grey and red fox also live here, but are rarely seen.

    After seeing your first postcard views of the Paine Massif, enter Torres del Paine National Park. Here the landscape changes dramatically to spectacular glacier lakes frequented by marine birds, lofty waterfalls and magnificent granite mountain peaks covered by ice. The enormous Campo de Hielo Sur icecap gives the park four main glaciers - Grey, Dickson, Zapata and Tyndall. Two other glaciers descend from the west side of the central massif. Check into your lodge in these spectacular surroundings.

  • Day 7 : Torres Del Paine National Park

    At leisure to relax and enjoy the spectacular scenery of Torres Del Paine National Park (pay for 3-day park entrance fee locally).

    Each day enjoy excursions to view the chain of beautiful glacier lakes that flow into Lake Pehoé. These include:

    Lake Amarga ('Bitter Lake') which has one of the best views of the three granite Torres Del Paine ('Towers of Blue') from which the park takes its name. Flamingos can sometimes be seen here.
    Lake Azul with its azure blue waters and wonderful views.
    Lake Nordenskjold lookout, with its view over the different peaks of the Paine Massif, including the famous 'horns' (Cuernos del Paine) and Paine Grande, the highest mountain at over 10,000 ft (3,050 m).
    Salto Grande Waterfall where you can walk 15-minutes to get really close to this powder blue cascade.
    Lake Grey where you can walk across a hanging bridge over the Pingo River to the shores of the lake. From here walk 30-minutes each way to get up close to the spectacular blue icebergs that fall from the Grey Glacier, which can be seen in the distance.

    The Lake Grey Glacier boat ride is also not to be missed. This navigation will take you right up to the face of this mighty glacier (pay locally).

    Walkers and hikers will also be spoilt for choice, with options ranging from easy to extremely tough:
    The Fauna Trail in the eastern section of the park is an easy 1.5-hour walk (3-hours if done both ways) to a cave with some old paintings. Guanaco are plentiful on these open plains and this is therefore the habitat of their main predator - the elusive puma (also called mountain lion, or cougar) - but as they are nocturnal and have excellent camouflage they are rarely seen.
    The Condor Lookout (2-hours) is a steeper but still relatively easy hike up to the nesting grounds of these huge vultures.
    The Base of the Towers is an iconic hike to the base of the Torres Del Paine, but it is an extremely tough (and steep) all day hike that takes 8 to 9 hours.
    The W Trek is a 4-day hike that combines the Base of the Towers with a W-shaped route around the front of the Paine Massif and into two valleys, but the first part of it can be done as a day hike. The hike is long, but not difficult.
    Ice Hike on Grey Glacier (6-hours) is a challenging but thrilling hike on ice, using crampons that are provided by the organisers of this excursion.

    If you would like to horse ride through this spectacular scenery, be sure to request an estancia (ranch) situated near the entrance to the park.

    Note: Lodge charges vary depending upon the programme you have booked (see lodge notes). If you have booked on an all-inclusive basis most of these activities are usually included, but supplements may be payable for the Grey Glacier navigation and the Ice Hike.
