Itinerary

Itineraries on some departure dates may differ, please select the itinerary that you wish to explore.

Day 1 - Join trip Santiago de Chile; afternoon city tour

Joining the trip in Santiago today, our intention this afternoon is to take an orientation tour of the city by bus. One of the most scenic cities in South America, Santiago lies in the shadow of the Andes and the old part of the city, around the Alameda, contains a number of fine buildings, statues and gardens, including the impressive Presidential Palace and the monastery of San Francisco. The city is filled with museums to its colonial and pre-Columbian past and in the Bellavista district we can find the unusual house of the famous Chilean poet and Nobel Prize winner Pablo Neruda.

Accommodation:

Grade: Comfortable Hotel

Single room available

Meals Provided: None

Day 2 - Free day in Santiago, optional Valparaiso trip

Today has been left free to explore some more of the city, to wander its streets and parks, or to taste the regional food and drink some of the famous Chilean wine. Alternatively there is the option of a trip to the nearby city of Valparaiso, Chile's culture capital. Once a colonial port linking trade with neighbouring Peru, the city suffered numerous raids at the hands of pirates, including Sir Francis Drake. Reaching the height of its prosperity during the 19th century it finally fell into decline with the onset of the steam age and the opening of the Panama Canal. Much of its colonial past has been destroyed by a number of powerful earthquakes over the years, but the city still retains some of the grandeur of its past. Today it is a major port and the surrounding hills, a natural amphitheatre covered in colourful houses and mansions, are a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Meals Provided: Breakfast

Day 3 - Fly to Calama, drive to San Pedro de Atacama; walk in Valle de la Luna

Flying to Calama this morning we transfer by private bus to the oasis town of San Pedro de Atacama, set high among the spectacular volcanoes of Los Andes Cordillera and our gateway to the dramatic landscapes of the Atacama Desert. On arrival there will be time to relax, and this afternoon we will take a walk among the dunes of the nearby Valle de la Luna (Moon Valley), a nature reserve to the west of the town, where the surreal landscape has been formed by the erosion of the salt mountains. We intend to watch the setting sun cast its golden glow across the spectacular landscape, before returning by bus back to San Pedro.

Accommodation:

Grade: Comfortable Hotel

Single room available

Meals Provided: Breakfast

Day 4 - In San Pedro, walk on the Salar de Atacama

San Pedro was once the centre of the Atacama culture, before the arrival of the Spanish, and its dusty streets and evocative setting still exude an air of times long past. Over the next two days we have the chance to explore in more depth the cultural and natural diversity of this town. Our first day sees us travelling out to the gigantic Salar de Atacama to walk on the salt flats, undoubtedly one of the most dramatic natural features in the country. The barren valley of salt has been almost moulded by wind into crystalline forms on its crust - some hexagonal and others almost coral-like, or like shards of ice. Flamingoes drink from the saltwater lagoons, a flash of bright pink against the otherwise barren landscape. As well as walking in this strange setting, we visit the small village of Tocanao, known for its buildings made of the volcanic stone liparite. We visit the church and historic bell tower, as well as the booths of craftspeople who sell their wares in the small village square.

Accommodation:

Grade: Comfortable Hotel

Single room available

Meals Provided: Breakfast

Day 5 - Free day; optional El Tatio Hot Springs

Our second day in San Pedro has been left free, affording the chance to do some exploring on your own. You may like to take an early morning trip out to the El Tatio Hot Springs, a geothermal field of spouting geysers and steaming fumaroles surrounded by a vista of volcanic mountains. Watching these active geysers erupting in the light of the rising sun is an impressive sight.

Accommodation:

Grade: Comfortable Hotel

Single room available

Meals Provided: Breakfast

Day 6 - Fly to Puerto Montt and transfer to Puerto Varas; walk at Llanquihue Lake

Today we fly to Puerto Montt, the most important port in the south of Chile and, in a very real sense, the spot where the developed or settled population of Chile comes to a full stop. This is the gateway to the wild and rugged regions to the south and from here we drive to Puerto Varas and our hotel, based beside the shores of Lake Llanquihue. With some free time to explore we'll take a stroll on the lake shore, the second largest in Chile and one of the shimmering jewels of Chile's Lake District. Set against the backdrop of snow-capped volcanoes, this is the third largest expanse of natural water on the South American continent and presents us with a quite breathtaking setting.

Accommodation:

Grade: Comfortable Hotel

Single room available

Meals Provided: Breakfast

Day 7 - Walk around the Osorno Volcano

We have a full day of short hikes in this area, which is dominated by the classic volcanic cone of Osorno (2680m), an almost picture-perfect representation of a snowy volvanic peak. Our walk takes us through the lush landscapes of the Valdivian rainforest, the slopes of the mountain sprinkled with Andean birch, providing a haven for chingue (Patagonian skunk), culpeo (Patagonian fox), weasels and puma, whilst the bird populations boast hummingbirds, woodpeckers and kestrel. We head to the Petrohue Waterfalls, a cascading torrent of emerald-blue with a stunning backdrop of the Osorno Volcano.

Accommodation:

Grade: Comfortable Hotel

Single room available

Meals Provided: Breakfast

Day 8 - Fly to Punta Arenas, drive to Puerto Natales

We fly to Punta Arenas today - our journey is normally in the afternoon but flight schedules can change. On arrival into Punta Arenas we take a public bus for the three hour drive to our hotel in Puerto Natales. This is the gateway to the Torres del Paine national park, and from small beginnings as a tiny fishing port it has now blossomed to a hub of adventure, with an atmosphere of excitement as travellers pass through on their way to the mountains. From the edge of the town there are striking views out to the fjords, and looking back inland we see the mountains rising imposingly over us. We will arrive in the evening to Puerto Natales.

Accommodation:

Grade: Comfortable Hotel

Single room available

Meals Provided: Breakfast

Day 9 - Drive to Torres del Paine National Park via Milodon Cave

Leaving Puerto Natales this morning we travel via the Milodon Cave to Torres del Paine National Park, arguably one of the world's most beautiful national parks, described by Alberto de Agostini as 'one of the most spectacular sights that the human imagination can conceive'. We spend the full day in the park and drive around the circuit with plenty of stops to take in the wild and rugged scenery. Torres del Paine is situated amidst a region of ice-capped peaks, silent blue glacial lakes and wild hill country. It is not unusual to see large numbers of guanacos here, as well as black-necked swans, upland geese, pink flamingos and the odd grey fox snooping around the human food areas looking for an easy meal. We may even be fortunate enough to spot condors. One of the highlights of our time here will be the views of the Torres, imposing pinnacles of sharp granite that are surrounded by glacial lakes and craggy ranges, formed millions of years ago. Reaching over 2600 metres these towers are just part of an impressive range, the highest of which is the Cerro Paine Grande, presenting us with one of the most breathtaking mountain vistas on the planet. This is a place to keep an eye out for condors, rheas and guanacos. The itinerary here is kept flexible so we can make the best choices depending on weather conditions as some walks and stops may not be possible due to high winds.

Accommodation:

Grade: Comfortable Guesthouse

Single room available

Meals Provided: Breakfast

Day 10 - Walks in Torres del Paine National Park

Today we have the opportunity to explore this wilderness on foot. We start out on the Hunters Trail, a roughly 7.5km hike which takes 3 hours to complete. The trail crosses natural habitats of big guanaco colonies, and for the lucky few there is the chance to spot the elusive puma. Otherwise, its a great hike for seeing condors or the black-chested buzzard eagle, as well as going past the remains of cave paintings made some 6000 years ago, by the remote and primitave Aonikenk tribes of Patagonia. In the afternoon, we walk to the magnificent icebergs of the glacier-fed Lago Grey, an easy 5km hike of about 1hr in length. The scenery is magnificent throughout, and again the itinerary is flexible in case of the strong winds that sometimes whip through this wild landscape. For those who particularly wish to do the area's most iconic hike to the base of the Torres peaks, it can be undertaken with a local guide from the lodge, at an additional cost.

Accommodation:

Grade: Comfortable Guesthouse

Single room available

Meals Provided: Breakfast

Day 11 - Return to Puerto Natales by car, or optional zodiac boat

We have our last morning in the park before departing for Puerto Natales in the early afternoon. It's a short drive, or alternatively for those who wish there is the option to take a zodiac boat from Torres del Paine. This excursion starts with a zodiac ride down the Serrano River for one and a half hours, reaching Puerto Toro where we will hike for 30 minutes to get up-close to the Serrano Glacier. After our hike we then board a larger vessel and continue our journey south for another one and a half hours arriving for a well-deserved barbecue lunch at a traditional estancia. We come back together in Puerto Natales in the evening, and have the rest of the day free to relax or perhaps eat out at one of the town's many restaurants.

Accommodation:

Grade: Comfortable Hotel

Day 12 - Return to Punta Arenas, fly to Santiago

This morning we transfer to Punta Arenas, from where we fly back this afternoon to Santiago. On arrival we will transfer to our hotel for the final evening of our journey through this remarkable country.

Day 14 - Discover Anakena on the northern coast

Isolated amidst the vast expanse of the Pacific Ocean, Easter Island has long held a sense of mystery and fascination for outsiders. Lying some 3790km to the west of Chile the island's nearest neighbour is actually Pitcairn Island (a mere 2075km away) and its giant stone monoliths have been the subject of conjecture and speculation for centuries. Also known as Rapa Nui and the Isla de Pascua, it was discovered by the Dutch on Easter Sunday 1722 (hence its European name), but the original inhabitants of this remote and dramatic island called it Te Pito O Te Henua (the navel of the world). Today it remains one of the most remarkable archaeological sites on the planet, a factor that has seen it entered onto the UNESCO World Heritage listings. The island is renowned for the magnificent stone heads, or Moai, that dot its rugged coastline, magnificent and mysterious monoliths that once numbered some 800 in all and now lie as silent and broken sentinels, looking out across the deep waters of the Pacific.

Over the next two days you will explore something more of this most majestic and unique setting. On the first day an excursion has been arranged to Anakena on the northern coast, and we explore the majestic ceremonial platform of Tongariki with its gigantic Moais, as well as the impressive volcanic crater at Rano Raraku, where the largest unfinished Moai can be found at a shocking 21 metres, and the peaceful Te Pito Kura. Anakena beach itself is the site of the village of the island's first monarch, Hotu Matua and the setting for an almost perfectly restored Moai, affording you an opportunity to get some idea of the sheer majesty and wonder that these incredible statues must have evoked. Please note while staying in Easter Island excursions are not in a private vehicle but may be shared with others.

Day 15 - Visit the Orongo stone village and ceremonial centre

Our second day sees us visiting the village of Orongo on the southernmost tip of the island, one of the island's most culturally important sites and the setting for the annual competitions that played such a vital factor in the ancient birdman cult. Each year chosen warriors from each of the tribes would dive into the waters and swim to the nearby island of Motu Nui in search of the first of the eggs laid by the manutara (sooty tern). The successful swimmer would win the right for his clan to control the distribution rights of the island's resources for the coming year, making it not only a culturally important event, but also one that had far reaching implications for the entire population. The remains of a number of ruined buildings and petroglyphs are dotted about the site, offering a fascinating insight into the cult and its influences. After visiting the quarries at Rano Raraku yesterday, where most of the Moai were carved out of the porous tuff found within the now barren crater, we discover how far the giant figures were transported to their final site of erection. The method of transportation on wooden rollers resulted in the eventual deforestation of the island and ultimately led to the barren landscapes that we see before us today.

Tipping

Explore leader
Tipping isn't compulsory, and we work hard to ensure that our leaders all receive a fair wage. However, you might want to recognise a leader that's done a great job or really added to your trip by giving them a tip. We're often asked about the recommended amount. It's a tricky one, and down to personal preference, but we'd recommend between £15 to £20 per person per week as a guideline
Local crew
Although entirely voluntary, tipping is a recognized part of life in this region of the world. Some local staff will look to members of the group for personal recognition of particular services provided. In order to make things easier for you, your leader may organise a group's tips kitty for included activities and meals and if this is the case, they will account for it throughout the tour.

Accordingly, you should allow US$ 70, approx. 48'680 Argentine Pesos for group tipping

For all non-included services and meals on your trip please tip independently at your discretion.

All customers that travel on an Explore Group or Private Journey trip will be provided with a complimentary transfer, provided they arrive and depart into the designated airport or train station on the trip start and end dates. Generally the airport or station that Explore have selected will be the one that is closest to the town or city where the trip starts, or the one nearest to the joining point. It will be either an airport or train station but not both. The exception to this rule are customers who are booked on a trip where the joining and/or ending point is the airport or station. In this particular case there will be a specific time provided for when the trip starts and ends. On these particular trips, only one arrival and departure transfer will generally be provided for the whole group. Please see free transfers for terms and conditions.

These trip joining details are provided on a provisional basis and may change prior to this tour departing. Any changes to these details will be updated on this page.
