A private stargazing experience

The clear skies of Atacama, considered the best in the Southern Hemisphere for astronomy, offer exceptional observation of the firmament and celestial bodies. Your private guide and driver will take you out into the desert to enjoy the spectacle at its finest.

Visit the Valle de la Luna

Depart San Pedro and head to the Cordillera de la Sal (Salt Mountain Range), where you will visit the Valley of the Moon, or Valle de la Luna, that forms part of the National Flamingo Reservation. This unique place is famous for its natural mineral sculptures, one of them being Las Tres Marías – The Three Marys – which has been formed by wind erosion and resembles a lunar setting.

Hot air ballooning over the Atacama

A flight over the desert

Take off early this morning for unrivalled views over the spectacular dessert landscape of the Valley of the Moon in complete comfort style and safety. Enjoy champagne upon landing, as is tradition.

Days 5–8

Three days in the heart of the Chilean Wine Region

South of Santiago lie Chile’s rich central valleys and Wine Region. Your time here will allow you to discover some of the most renowned vineyards in the region and sample the exquisite wines that have made Chile a world-class producer. You can spend your days tasting and touring – or on hikes and horse rides through the beautiful estates and peaceful countryside.

Days 8–12

Four days in Torres del Paine

Rising from sea level to a height of almost 3000 metres, the granite peaks that make up the ‘Torres’ of Torres del Paine would be a truly mesmerising sight on their own. Joined by turquoise glacial lagoons, icebergs, snow-capped mountains, endless fjords, forest and rushing rivers – all overseen by condors, pumas and vicunas – they become something truly special and, for many, the sole reason to visit Chile. This is the place for adventure: on foot, on horseback or by bike.

Chilean culinary class

Start the morning at the Mercado Central, Santiago’s celebrated fresh fish market then move on to La Vega, the popular fruit and vegetable market. Bring the produce back to a cooking workshop in Barrio Italia, where a chef-instructor will guide you in preparing simple but delicious Chilean recipes. Finally, enjoy a well-earned feast complemented by excellent Chilean wines.

Museum of Memory and Human Rights

Visit to the Museum of Memory and Human Rights, a fascinating and moving museum dedicated to the victims of human rights violations during the civic-military regime led by Augusto Pinochet between 1973 and 1990. There are countless striking exhibits here, defined by the likes of video footage taken from detention centres, newspaper excerpts from the 1970s and 1980s, and interactive photography and audio exhibits.

Santiago architecture tour

With an architect guide, start your journey in Las Condes District, specifically the El Golf area which still keeps the elegant atmosphere of the last century. Next, head to Santiago downtown and stop to see the vast fresco painted by the renowned Chilean artist Mario Toral. Then, choose to visit the colourful Bellavista neighbourhood, with its eclectic architecture or see the Barrio Brasil.
