At a glance

A truly extraordinary trip and grand tour to some the most stirring scenery of South America and Antarctica.

Start with a relaxing couple of nights in the wonderful Wine Region a short way outside of Chile’s capital, Santiago, before beginning your journey south. Spend three nights at the stylish Hotel Vira Vira, a luxurious hideaway among the forests, rivers and snow-capped volcanoes of the Lake District in an area famed for its range of adventure activities.

Then, after a night in Punta Arenas, fly out to King George Island at the tip of the Antarctic Peninsula. Board your cruise ship here for a five night adventure through perhaps the most sublime landscape on earth. With a sun that never sets, sail past towering icebergs and through pristine fjords, getting up close to penguins and whales are you explore the waters on Zodiac boats and set foot on the White Continent.

Flying back to the Chilean mainland, spend your last three days touring the incredible Patagonian mountains of Torres del Paine where you can hike and ease yourself back into civilization while reflecting on an unforgettable trip.

The national park of Torres del Paine and its surroundings are one of the most spectacular and unique places in the world. Rising from sea level to a height of almost 3000 metres, the granite peaks that make up the ‘Torres’ would be a truly breath-taking sight on their own. However, when they’re joined with turquoise glacial lagoons, icebergs, snow-capped mountains, endless fjords, forest and rushing rivers all overseen by condors, pumas and vicunas, it becomes something truly special and, for many, the sole reason that they visit Chile.

Depending on the lodgings you have chosen and your individual preferences your travel designer can design a program of activities featuring a whole host of different and diverse ways to explore and encounter Torres del Paine.
