Days 1 — 3

Colourful Valparaíso

On arrival in Chile’s capital, Santiago, you’ll be met and driven a short distance to the charmingly extrovert port of Valparaíso for two nights in Pablo Neruda’s favourite city. Though still an important trade hub, its heyday was between the Californian Gold Rush and Panama Canal’s construction, when it was a stop off for ships on their way to the United States’ West Coast, and most of its UNESCO protected historic quarter dates from then.

Days 3 — 6

Atacama adventure

Fly north from Santiago to the Atacama Desert. This is a harsh and beautiful region, one of the driest places on earth with its high-altitude Martian looking landscape backdropped by snowcapped volcanoes whose peaks reach close to 6,000m.

Days 6 — 8

Renowned vineyards

Fly back to the capital and drive out to a celebrated winery in one of the fertile valleys a short way outside the city. With an ideal climate somewhere between that of California and France, this is one of the world’s most productive wine regions growing a mix of distinct Carménère, Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon and Sauvignon Blanc grapes.

Days 8 — 12

Explore Torres del Paine

And now for the grand finale. Fly south, deep into Patagonia, to Torres del Paine National Park. It’s here that the Andes are at their most spectacular, rising out of bright blue fjords and turquoise lakes through green pampas and immense glaciers to jagged granite summits.
