Inland towards the Andes, the rolling wine country of the Colchagua and Maipo valleys awaits. Soon you’ll be threading your way through grapevines on a tour of vineyards tucked between forested Andes foothills.

Itinerary

Thu, Feb 18 to Sat, Feb 27 - 2021

Show Itinerary:

Begin your adventure by departing from a convenient gateway city in the United States or Canada. Spend the first night aloft.

Arrive at Santiago International Airport and meet your Country Walkers representative as you exit the baggage claim area. After transferring to your hotel, you’re free the rest of the day to settle in and explore the area.

Upon arrival at Santiago International Airport, a representative holding a Country Walkers sign meets you as you exit the baggage claim area. A complimentary small-group transfer is provided to The Singular Hotel in Santiago, approximately 30 minutes away. Please look for the Country Walkers sign with your name on it to ensure that you are meeting the designated Country Walkers driver. Do not accept transportation from anyone other than the Country Walkers representatives who have your name on their sign.

We encourage all guests to use caution regarding taxi and shuttle services. If for some reason you cannot find your Country Walkers representative, please call the Country Walkers transfer company for assistance, using your own cell phone—to ensure that you are legitimately connected to the proper service. The transfer company is South Expeditions, their designated representative for transfer support is Rene Lagos, his telephone number is +569 8233 2218 and the 24-hour emergency telephone numbers are +593 98 477 0703 or +569 85 199 231. Please refer to the included letter with more detailed information on meeting your driver at the Santiago Airport.

Important note: Be wary of unaffiliated drivers overly eager to help you (or offering to drive you themselves), as they could be part of a financial scam.

There may be up to a 45-minute wait if there are other guests arriving within the same time frame. The remainder of the day is at your leisure (no meals included).

Country Walkers provides you with City Information including recommendations on what to see and do in Santiago during your stay.

4 miles, easy

Awakening refreshed, you enjoy an included breakfast at your hotel before meeting your group at 8:30 a.m. in the lobby of The Singular Santiago. Your guide(s) will be wearing a Country Walkers shirt. Please be dressed for walking. After a brief introduction to the group, your adventure begins.

After meeting your guide(s), join them for a guided walking tour of Santiago, Chile. Leave your luggage at The Singular and enjoy an easy walk through some of the historical neighborhoods of Santiago, culminating at San Cristobal Hill, where you will experience magnificent views of the entire city. This walking tour will give you a new perspective into the culture and history of Chile and its capital.

Transfer two hours to the picturesque beach town of Zapallar, which is known for its distinctly European feel. Founded a century ago by the son of an affluent local landowner, it was patterned after the villages of the French Riviera and now boasts many elegant estates. Arrive at scenic Cachagua Beach, where you enjoy lunch at a seaside restaurant offering traditional Chilean dishes. Take time to stroll along the sand—or even dip your toes in the ocean—before a leisurely walk brings you along the coast to your hotel. As you walk, keep an eye out for Humboldt penguins, which flock to a nearby island sanctuary. Once you’ve arrived at your hotel, gaze out at the ocean views from this European-style accommodation.

Stroll along Zapallar’s waterfront to reach the restaurant where we will dine together this evening. Fresh-caught fish is the specialty of the house. Watch fishing boats chug by as you try local dishes like grilled corvina in black butter or baked crab stew.

Accommodation: Hotel Isla Seca, Zapallar
Included Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

2 miles, easy to moderate or 4 miles, moderate; 1,400-ft. elevation gain and loss. Free afternoon or optional coastal walk of 2 miles, easy

Begin your day with a hearty breakfast at the hotel before embarking on the day’s walk, that starts only steps away from your accommodation. El Boldo Park is a private initiative created in 2010, protecting 173 acres of flora in a variety of biomes. This region of Zapallar is considered a hotspot of diversity because of the way the Pacific Ocean’s mists and winds create a variety of microclimates on the adjacent hills. As you ascend the Sendero al Cristo Trail – leading up to a giant Christ statue—keep an eye out for the beautiful belloto del norte, an exceptionally rare species of tree recently declared a Chilean Natural Monument. You also have a chance to spot giant hummingbirds and Chilean orchids along the way. It is possible to lengthen the walk and continue to the hill’s summit, to soak up spectacular 360-degree views of the coast and the mountains spread out before you.

After a picnic lunch, you may join the guides on an optional short walk along the coast, relax on the beach, or walk into Zapallar on your own, perhaps visiting the gallery of a well-known artist.

This evening, join your travel companions for dinner on the hotel’s terrace (weather permitting).

Accommodation: Hotel Isla Seca, Zapallar
Included Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

2-3 miles, easy

Today you depart Zapallar and transfer two hours south to Valparaíso, a colorful and chaotic port city whose historic quarter became a UNESCO World Heritage site in 2003. Here, you enjoy a guided walking tour of its maze-like cobblestone streets. You’ll discover a brightly painted hodge-podge of houses stacked on dramatic hillsides, the town’s19th-century docks and steep funiculars, and see beautiful views of the Andes along the way. Though once notoriously run down, “Valpo” (as locals affectionately know it) has undergone a dazzling renaissance in the last 15 years, with exceptional new restaurants, museums, and street art—witnessing its revival is an essential highlight of any trip to Chile.

Afterward, a local restaurant offers a delicious opportunity to sample classic Chilean coastal fare. You’ll delight in dishes like breaded hake, shrimp empanadas, eel fritters, or seafood soup. This afternoon continue your guided walking tour, which includes some free time to explore the city at your own pace, perhaps strolling along the Yugoslav Promenade. Enjoy dinner on your own in Valparaíso, experiencing one of its acclaimed new restaurants or enjoy the vistas from the hotel’s restaurant terrace.

Accommodation: Hotel Casa Higueras, Valparaiso
Included Meals: Breakfast, Lunch

3 miles, easy, 300-ft. elevation gain and loss

After breakfast, depart your hotel on foot along a trail that follows the contour line of the hills to enjoy views overlooking the city and colors of Valparaíso. Continue with a one-hour transfer to Isla Negra, passing through charming villages with beautiful ocean views along the way. Your destination is the spectacular beachside estate of Pablo Neruda, one of the most acclaimed Spanish-language poets of the 20th century. Here, the poet and political activist lived with his wife until his death in 1973. The quirky residence is filled with his unique collections (including ship figureheads, bottles, masks, and much more) and surrounded by beautiful gardens—all directly facing the pounding surf of a secluded beach.

After exploring Neruda’s home, enjoy lunch at the neighboring El Rincon del Poeta, famous for its caldillo de congrio (eel soup) and guachinanguito (red snapper). From Isla Negra, you continue south on a two and a half-hour drive towards the valley of Colchagua. Stretching from the Pacific Ocean to the foothills of the Andes, this patchwork of vineyards, forest, and sophisticated towns looks like it was transplanted straight from Tuscany. Crowned as the “Wine Region of the Year” by Wine Spectator magazine in 2015, it produces some of the most highly regarded red wine varietals in the world.

Your hotel is housed in a historical bodega from 1875, idyllically located among the grape arbors of surrounding vineyards. Here, you may take time to stroll the manicured grounds, swim in the outdoor pool, or relax on the large outdoor terrace. A sumptuous dinner in the hotel’s dining room features some of the region’s celebrated vintages and specialties like Chilean sea bass, ravioli with beets, and fresh-baked breads.

Accommodation: Hotel Noi Blend, Santa Cruz
Included Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

3-5 miles, easy to moderate; 850-ft. elevation gain and loss

Today, you begin with an elaborate breakfast and a cup of café con leche before visiting a local school. Here, you have the opportunity to spend time with students, ages 6 to 12, taking time to exchange stories and learn about their daily lives. Afterward, you transfer to Neyen, an organic vineyard located in the old terraces of the Tinguiririca River. This stunning area is nestled between the Andes Mountains and the Coastal Range. Home to the oldest bodega in the region—its adobe walls dating back to 1890—the estate also boasts a state-of-the-art winemaking facility. A guided tour brings you to the original 19th-century vines where you learn the basics of viticulture, including how to differentiate a Carménère from a Cabernet Sauvignon leaf, as you stroll through the vineyard and surrounding hills. Arrive in time for a well-earned lunch paired with one of the estate’s wines.

This afternoon you visit the MontGras Winery, which combines traditional Colonial architecture with one of the most modern wine-making facilities in the world. Using ultramodern technology in all its processes has earned this winery a number of international awards over the years, and Harvard Business School even studied MontGras as the ideal example of a successful Chilean bodega. Here you tour the grounds and participate in a wine tasting with an expert sommelier.

Dinner tonight is at a countryside restaurant with offerings such as empanadas, quinoa salad, grilled fish, or pasta—all paired with local vintages.

Accommodation: Hotel Noi Blend, Santa Cruz
Included Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

3.5 miles, easy to moderate; 850-ft. elevation gain and loss

Bid farewell to the Colchagua Valley (after one more sumptuous breakfast) and transfer approximately one hour east toward the town of San Fernando. Here, you trace the Ruta del Carbon trail—named for the adobe kilns passed along the way, many still used by locals for making charcoal. Walking a path lined with acacia trees, appreciate postcard views of the valley: a landscape of vineyards and giant cacti. Eventually, you arrive on foot to Hacienda Los Lingues, a beautifully preserved 16th-century estate set amidst towering oak and eucalyptus trees. Here, you enjoy lunch in the courtyard, perhaps sampling some of the produce from their organic garden and their bread, prepared daily in the house.

Sated from lunch, you continue north (one and a half hours) to the celebrated Viña Santa Rita, to your final hotel, housed in the historic manor house. This building, which retains its original neoclassical style, spectacular gardens, and wine vaults, has been declared a national historic site. Before settling into your elegantly appointed room, take time to visit the on-site Andean Museum, featuring an impressive display of Chilean artifacts and handicrafts.

Tonight, the estate’s chef will prepare a Chilean barbecue where you savor grilled specialties—all paired with Chilean wines, of course.

Accommodation: Casa Real Hotel, Alto Jahuel
Included Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

San Jorge Hill Viewpoint: 1.5 miles, easy to moderate. Transfer to Santiago

Arrive at an organic farm, where you’ll take a leisurely walk to the perfect spot for a panoramic view of Pirque. Enjoy a picnic lunch that you help prepare while you take in views of the Andes before transferring to Santiago’s International Airport.

Following breakfast, begin your day with a visit to an organic farm owned by a local friend, Mateo. After a refreshing welcome beverage and snack of crostini with pebre (a typical spicy sauce of Chile) with tomato, cheese, and basil you walk on a wide dirt path underneath a shade tree canopy until you reach the perfect spot for a break and take in a panoramic view of Pirque. Here, you have time to relax for a moment before returning down the same path to Mateo’s home, all the while taking in the beautiful vistas from a new perspective.

Lunch today is a special picnic meal prepared with local organic produce that you and your traveling companions harvest from Mateo’s garden. After the harvest you are invited to help with the meal preparation, but feel free to relax and enjoy stunning views of the snow-capped peaks of the Andes as we savor the local specialties, including ceviche with vegetables from the garden or corn cake with a Chilean salad, instead.

Later, transfer to Santiago International Airport. If you have time before your flight, you may wish to spend time in one of the airports lounges (at your own expense).¡Buen viaje!

Upon arrival at Punta Arenas you will be met by The Singular Patagonia hotel’s representative and transported to your five-star hotel, The Singular Patagonia.

This evening The Singular Patagonia tour staff will meet with you to review your tour interests and arrange your personal tour itinerary. Tour excursions do not need to be pre-booked as tour arrangements will be made at the hotel depending upon your group’s interests and excursions operating during your stay. Relax and enjoy an included dinner at your hotel tonight (wine and alcoholic beverages at your own expense).

Accommodation: The Singular Patagonia

Spend the day discovering this spectacular fjord-side location. Your visit will be further enhanced with a choice of included, fully guided, small-group excursions in and around Puerto Bories, Puerto Natales, and within Torres del Paine National Park. Return to enjoy The Singular’s refreshing spa and famous fine dining, featuring superior wines and fresh local delicacies (wine included with dinner this evening).

Accommodation: The Singular Patagonia

After breakfast, a Singular Patagonia hotel representative transfers you to the Punta Arenas Airport for your flight to Santiago. Upon arrival in Santiago, if you have time before your flight, you may wish to spend time in one of the airports lounges (at your own expense).. Please refer to your airline’s check-in requirements and plan to arrive for your specific departure time accordingly. ¡Buen viaje! (Lunch and dinner are on your own.)
