It may be hard to decide where to start when looking at the map of the world's longest country. This tour combines all of Chile's top wonders: mountains, lakes, volcanoes, glaciers, world-class national parks and some picturesque and cosmopolitan towns. Starting in the lake region, 'Los Lagos', with the active Osorno volcano, the tour will unveil the charms of Chiloé, South America’s fifth largest island. A short flight away and you will discover the many treasures Patagonia has to offer with its 400,000 square miles stretching between Argentina and Chile.

Cruise to the Serrano and Balmaceda Glaciers, hike in The Bernardo O’Higgins National Park and enjoy a great lunch at the traditional Estancia Perales restaurant. You will then spend an unforgettable day exploring the Torres del Paine National Park, famous for three immense rock towers, numerous snow-peaked mountains, lagoons and incredible waterfalls. Often neglected by the uninformed traveler, Santiago will also reveal its best secrets, its quiet squares, its vibrant central market and San Cristobal Hill with its unmatched views of the Great Santiago Tower.The colourful port of Valparaiso, 'The Jewel of the Pacific', will be the perfect place to say your goodbyes to this astonishing country while relaxing in this sea-side bohemian city among artists and art-lovers, the epitome of Chile's welcoming atmosphere.
