Itinerary

Thu, Feb 13 to Sat, Feb 22 - 2020

Show Itinerary:

Overnight Flight from USA to Santiago, Chile

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

Arrive in Santiago, Chile

Accommodation: The Singular Hotel, Santiago

4 miles, easy

Meeting Point & Time: The Singular Santiago, 8:30 a.m.
Breakfast is included at your hotel.

Your guide(s) will meet you at 8:30 a.m. in the lobby of the Singular Santiago. Your guides will be wearing a Country Walkers shirt. Please be dressed for walking.

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

Transfer two hours to the picturesque beach town of Zapallar, known for its distinctly European feel. Founded a century ago by the son of an affluent local landowner, it was patterned after the towns of the French Riviera and now boasts many elegant estates. Arrive at the picturesque 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. Arriving to your hotel on foot, enjoy 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 enjoy local dishes like grilled corvina in black butter or baked crab stew.

Accommodation: Hotel Isla Seca, Zapallar

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, whose start is only steps away from your accommodation. Guests wishing for a longer (and more challenging) stroll may depart directly from the hotel. 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, due to 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 spread below you and the surrounding mountains above.

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

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, discovering a brightly painted hodge-podge of houses stacked on dramatic hillsides, 19th-century docks, steep funiculars, and beautiful views of the Andes along the way. Though once notoriously run down, “Valpo” (as it’s affectionately known by locals) 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. Delight in dishes like breaded hake, shrimp empanadas, eel fritters, and seafood soup. This afternoon continue the walking tour with your guides with 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, Valparaíso

2 miles, easy

After breakfast at your hotel, transfer one hour to Las Peñuelas Reserve, part of the Campana-Peñuelas UNESCO Biosphere, for a short walk through quiet mixed forest. Continue with a one- hour transfer to Isla Negra, passing through charming villages and savoring beautiful ocean views along the way. Your destination: 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 2 ½-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 historic 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

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. After, you transfer to Neyen, an organic vineyard located in the old terraces of the Tinguiririca River, a stunning area 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 earned it a number of international awards over the years –Harvard Business School 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 local countryside restaurant with offerings such as empanadas, quinoa salad, grilled fish, or pasta—all paired with local vintages.

Accommodation: Hotel Noi Blend, Santa Cruz

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 1 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 trees of oak and eucalyptus. 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 (1 ½ hours) to the celebrated Viña Santa Rita, where your final hotel is housed in the bodega’s 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, which features an impressive display of Chilean artifacts and handcrafts.

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

Accommodation: Casa Real Hotel, Alto Jahuel

2.5 miles, moderate; 700-ft. elevation gain and loss

Following breakfast, begin your day with a 1 ½ hour transfer to nearby Rio Clarillo Reserve, a 29,000-acre habitat for abundant bird species, foxes, and the endangered Chilean iguana, located in the pre-Andean mountain range of the central valley. Here, after crossing the river via a well maintained suspension bridge, you head uphill on a trail passing through scrubland and Andean forest with views of the meandering Clarillo River and the snow-capped Andes Mountains in the distance.

Upon returning to your accommodations, partake in a true picnic (complete with baskets) laid out in the estate’s gardens, savored while lounging in the shade, a glass of Santa Rita’s Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Syrah, or Carménère in hand. Enjoy the afternoon at leisure, perhaps relaxing poolside or strolling the gardens before participating in a fun activity—blending, corking, and labeling your own bottle of wine! Then, head to the hotel’s lavish dining room for a celebratory candlelit dinner, where you and your travel companions toast the week’s adventures on your Chile hiking tour.

Accommodation: Casa Real Hotel, Alto Jahuel

Camino del Volcán; 3 miles, easy to moderate with moderate sections. Transfer to Santiago

Following breakfast, begin your day with a 1 ½ hour transfer to Camino del Volcán, a private reserve. On foot, follow a dirt road crossing the Rio Maipo via suspension bridge before climbing to a meadow, the perfect spot for a break and to take in the view of the surrounding peaks, keeping an eye out for birds nesting in the rocks. The trail then climbs and alternates between sparse forest and open vistas before reaching a waterfall. Here, you have time to relax for a moment before returning down the same path, all the while taking in the beautiful vistas from a new perspective.

Lunch today is a special picnic meal prepared with local organic produce picked earlier that day from the garden of one of our very own guides. We will enjoy stunning views of the snow-capped peaks of the Andes as we savor local specialties.

After a full day of exploring the pre-Andean mountain country, transfer to Santiago International Airport, where you relax in a quiet, private room at the Holiday Inn Santiago-Airport Terminal Hotel, a short walk from the terminal. Use the afternoon to organize your souvenirs, take a nap, shower, and ensure the novel you’ve been saving is in your carry-on bag. ¡Buen viaje! (Day room only, dinner is on your own.)
