Chile 6-Day Tours & Itineraries

Explore 9 trips designed by local kimkim specialists to get ideas for your trip to Chile.

With even as few as six days in which to travel, every region of Chile is accessible. One rewarding (and tasty) idea is to embark on a wine tour of the Aconcagua Valley while also visiting the cities of Santiago and Valparaiso. There’s even the option to experience the highlights of Chile’s far north and the Atacama Desert, which includes indigenous villages, natural hot springs, and spouting geysers. Two entirely different yet altogether beautiful regions are the Lake District, in the south, and the famous Easter Island. You could also plan a quick jaunt around Torres del Paine National Park, the jewel of Chilean Patagonia.
