Arrival to Santiago

Santiago, Chile’s capital and largest city, lies in a valley surrounded by the snow-capped mountains of the Andes and the Chilean Coastal Range. Founded in 1541, Santiago has been Chile’s capital since colonial times. It is a vibrant and cosmopolitan city and although it features many colonial buildings, it has grown into a modern metropolis and the cultural centre of the country.

You'll be met at arrivals by a Chimu representative and taken to your hotel to relax, unwind and start exploring the city.

Santiago – Torres del Paine

You'll be collected at your hotel and whisked to the airport for the short flight to Torres del Paine and the private transfer to Hotel Las Torres in the national park. It's a five hour drive into the park but the journey and stunning scenery is all part of the adventure!

Includes: breakfast
Torres del Paine National Park

There are no set itineraries for your stay at Hotel Las Torres. Each day you'll choose from a wide range of guided activities and excursions, which include easy-going walks, longer hikes, horseback riding, photo safaris, and motorboat excursions. You'll explore the park in intimate groups of no more than ten guests, always accompanied by a bilingual guide.

Relax, disconnect and unwind in this remote and staggeringly beautiful landscape!

Includes: breakfast, lunch, dinner
El Calafate

After one last breakfast in Torres del Paine you'll be collected for your private transfer across the border into Argentina. El Calafate flanks the southern shore of Lago Argentino in the southwest part of Argentina’s Santa Cruz Province. The town is near the edge of the Southern Patagonian Ice Field and is the gateway to World Heritage Listed Parque Nacional Los Glaciers.

Spend the rest of the day relaxing in your hotel and exploring this picturesque, frontier town with its excellent range of restaurants, cafes and chocolate shops.

Includes: breakfast
Perito Moreno Cruise

After breakfast in your hotel you'll be collected by your guide for an epic trip into the world-famous Glaciers National Park. Boarding a small yacht you'll cruise the crystal clear surface of Lago Argentino, navigating past enormous icebergs and a dazzling array of turquoise hues. Approaching Perito Moreno Glacier, you might get lucky and witness house-sized blocks calving from the vast wall of ice.

Returning to the pier you'll take a short hike along the trails and footbridges that lead to the glacier, giving you the opportunity to talk on the surface itself. Along the way your guide will explain the fascinating natural history of the region.

There is the option of doing a longer hike further onto the glacier – speak to a Chimu Adventures advisor for more information.

Includes: breakfast

After a final breakfast in Patagonia you'll be collected by a Chimu representative for a private transfer to the airport and your onward connection.

What people are saying

Roger Desmarchelier

I am now back after a fantastic trip in South America and the Antarctic. Thanks to Chimu, my whole trip was faultless, even allowing for two minor transfer delays. Overall, transport was good, airlines were generally efficient and the hotels that Chimu recommended at the high end, were very good.
