Fit a wide variety of unforgettable experiences into nine days.
This extensive 12-day itinerary covers the major highlights of north, south, and central Chile—the Lake District, Torres del Paine National Park, and the Atacama Desert. The Lake District is famous for its charming villages, Prussian-blue lakes, and snow-capped volcanoes. Torres del Paine, on the other hand, is the crown jewel of national parks to explore in Patagonia. Throw in a visit to a Patagonian penguin colony and a jaunt to the mystical and beautiful island of Chiloé, and you have the perfect Chilean adventure.
Begin your adventure in the capital of Santiago. Experience the city's culture and culinary delights on a full-day walking tour. Next, head to the coast to immerse yourself in the artsy vibe of Valparaíso before heading out to the Casablanca Valley to taste some of Chile's world-renowned wines. Then, travel south to Punta Arenas to explore the rugged beauty and unforgettable landscapes of Chilean Patagonia. Take a boat out to Magdalena Island, and get a close-up look at the 150,000 strong penguin colony. Then you'll embark on a trek into the famed Torres del Paine National Park, a Patagonian Mecca for hikers. Finally, you'll tour lakes and rivers before finishing with a boat trip to Glacier Grey.
If you have two weeks in Chile, you can visit a range of diverse landscapes or focus your energy on one region, like Patagonia. Explore the natural wonders of Chile, from the Atacama Desert to the glaciers of Torres del Paine National Park, take a boat tour through the Marble Caves, taste wines made at coastal wineries, and wander through the colorful streets of Valparaíso on these four unique itineraries.
With ten days in Chile, you have time to visit more than one region. On these five unique itineraries, you'll combine a visit to Santiago with active adventures in the Atacama Desert and Torres del Paine National Park, gourmet lunches and tastings in Chile's wine regions, and following the footsteps of poet Pablo Neruda in the port city of Valparaiso.

Great Trip to Chile - February
Nicholas helped us to organise a great itinerary in Chile at very short notice due to a change in holiday destination!
During our trip we visited Santiago, Vina del Mar, the Atacama desert and then down to Patagonia;. The tours and guides were all fantastic and we managed to fit a lot in in the 10 days we had available and felt like we had seen a lot of Chile by the end of our trip.
The stand out experiences were seeing the geysers in Atacama, visiting... read more

Nicholas planned the trip just right. We have some issues on the first day (out fault, that I left the phone in a Cabify taxi). Our trip guide helped us a lot, and eventually, we have got it back the next day. The rest of the trip was good and enjoyable. Nicholas was always accessible, and the tour company made everything hassle-free. Thanks, Nicholas.
Smooth trip with Nicholas’s planning · Chile - Dec 25 - Jan 8, 2020
Nicholas’s trip preparation for us was fantastic. We got to see what we wanted from the lake region to Patagonia to Iguazu Falls within our budget. The local drivers who picked us up at various airports in Chile were on time, so we did not have to worry. The local guides were knowledgeable and attentive. We will ask for him if we will visit Chile/South America again!

My son and I had a wonderful trip to Chile. We travelled from the Atacama Dessert to the Lake District and finally to Patagonia. Isla de Magdalena and Torres del Paine National Park! Thanks to Nicholas, the trip was planned perfectly. We had a lot to see but we also had our down time and time to tour on our own. Ending in Patagonia was awesome!
Such a beautiful country with wonderful people. We hope to return someday and see more of the National Parks!
Thank you NIcholas!
