If you look up the word ‘adventure’ in the dictionary, it should simply contain a link to this tour. This is an all trekking, all rapid river rafting, all exploring extravaganza with exclusive wine tasting and Patagonian picnics all thrown in too. Wedged between the cool blue waters of the Pacific and the towering peaks of the Great Andes, the settings for these activities are out of this world (walking across the driest desert in the world may have you actually thinking you’re on another planet…) There’s beret-wearing gauchos on horseback to meet, exploding geysers to witness and the stunning beauty of the Torres del Paine National Park to hike. So hold onto your hat (that famous Patagonian wind is very strong) and prepare for one of the most rewarding experiences of your life.

  • Full day hike to the base of towers in Torres Del Paine National Park
  • Spend 3 nights in the Atacama Desert at a boutique adobe styled hotel
  • Spend a day in the arty town of Valparaiso
  • Have a night out in the trendy Bellavista neighbourhood of Santiago
  • Go on the hunt for glaciers by cruising the lakes of Patagonia
  • Stroll through the charming streets of Santiago
  • Go wine tasting in Casablanca valley at a boutique winery
  • Explore the Valle de la Luna in the driest desert in the world
  • See the Tatio geysers explode like giant land whales
  • Go white water rafting in the volcanic lake district

Itinerary

Your Flash Pack representative will meet you at Santiago airport, where you’ll be whisked off to your boutique hotel by private transfer (this is how roll at Flash Pack). Once you’ve checked in, we’ll embark on a fascinating city walking tour of your Santiago surroundings. Highlights include Santiago’s main square, Plaza de Armas, La Moneda, the Palacio de la Real Audiencia and Casa Colorada. We’ll then head for the skies on a railway trip up to summit of the Cerro San Cristobal, prepare for a wonderful view across Santiago and the Andes beyond. Your urban adventure draws to a close with a welcome dinner at the bohemian neighbourhood of Bellavista where it’s bursting with trendy cafés, vibrant eateries and charming theatres…welcome to Chile Flashpackers!

Day 2: Drink in views and wine

Make sure you load up with carbs at breakfast, you’ll be drinking plenty of wine today! First up we’re heading to the charming city of Valparaiso for a day tour of Chile’s oldest port. You’ll explore its historic city centre before hopping aboard one of its funicular elevators up to an amazing viewpoint overlooking the city. Take in the multi-coloured panorama of this coastal city where painted houses span across the horizon. Once you’ve drank in the view, it’s time to drink up some wine at a boutique vineyard. Bodegas RE is a family run winery known for maturing its wine in clay barrels known as ‘Tinajas’ to produce a particularly pure taste. Here you’ll enjoy a guided tour before sampling a selection of their finest wines (the best bit of any wine tour, let’s face it!) Then return back to your hotel in Santiago feeling like a true sommelier.

Day 3: Step into a space movie at Atacama

Us Flashpackers love to mix it up a bit and, true to form, we’re throwing you head first into a totally different landscape: the rich colours and extreme wilderness of Atacama Desert. You’ll board a flight from Santiago to Calama, where you’ll head to the small town of San Pedro. First up we’re trekking through Quebrada de Kari and its unbelievable views of Salt Mountains and dried out river beds. We’ll then continue to the awesome and otherworldly landscape of Valle de la Luna, aka Moon Valley. This surreal region once fittingly served as the training ground for NASA’s Lunar Rover, so we won’t judge you if you start acting like you’re in the latest Hollywood space blockbuster. Here you’ll watch the setting sun sink behind this mesmerizing landscape whilst sipping a sunset cocktail. Then prepare to get starry eyed, the Atacama is one of the best places in the world to star gaze thanks to vast and unpolluted skies.
