At a glance

This private tour of Chile has been designed to include the most stunning highlights of this beautiful, contrasting country, all to be experienced in the lap of luxury with a big dose of adventure.

Begin in Chile’s far north and the other worldly landscape of the Atacama Desert, where you’ll spend four nights under an impossibly starry night sky, and your days out exploring red sands, spitting geysers and high altitude plains on horse rides, hikes and cycling excursions.

Next venture down to middle of the country for three nights in Chile’s languid Wine Region to sample exquisite wines that have made Chile a world-class producer.

Continue further south still to the far reaches of Chilean Patagonia and the Torres del Paine National Park, which is truly one of the most awesome places in South America. Finally, you have one night to relax and explore the sights of Santiago before your flight home.
