Overview

Santiago, the capital city of Chile has an incredible backdrop of 6000 metre snow capped mountains. Today, Santiago is a modern city; however the centre has retained some of its historic buildings. The vineyards around Santiago produced some of the best wine in all of Chile, and many of the vineyards are open to the public for tours. The colourful port of Valparaiso is a two hour drive away on the Pacific coast.

Puerto Varas is located in the heart of the Chilean Lake District, with a spectacular setting on the edge of Lake Llanquihue, with fantastic views of the surrounding mountains and volcanoes. The region has a strong German influence due to mass immigration in the middle of the 19th century. The Lake District is an excellent destination for outdoor activities with hiking, kayaking, mountain biking and white water rafting all available.

Torres Del Paine is one of the great national parks in South America, with mountains, glaciers, lakes, rivers and waterfalls. The park is home to foxes, guanacos (a type of llama), condors, rhea and even the rarely-seen puma. The park is a beautiful place to explore, either by road or on foot: the trekking is exceptional, with many excellent day hikes. The nearby town of Puerto Natales, beautifully set on the Last Hope Sound, is an excellent base before visiting Torres del Paine.
