FULL DAY EXCURSION COLCHAGUA VALLEY WINE ROUTE WITH LUNCH

Departure from hotel on a two-hour trip south of Santiago. Our destination is the co-called Valle de Colchagua, which has roughly 12 “boutique” wineries with a limited production. During the tour, where we’ll enjoy lovely views of the countryside, the following wineries may be visited depending on the day of week: Casa Silva, Estampa, Jacques & Francois Lurton, Laura Hartwig, Montes, Mont Gras, Viu Manent or Viña Bisquertt. After the visit, that includes a wine tasting experience, we go for lunch at Hotel Santa Cruz Plaza or a local restaurant. We may then want to visit another winery or instead tour the Colchagua Museum. The latter exhibits one of the largest and most important collections of pre-Hispanic art in Chile, as well as a very comprehensive display of Chile’s colonial period. Return to hotel.

FULL DAY TO VIÑA DEL MAR & VALPARAÍSO

Morning departure to enjoy a delightful visit of two cities located on the Pacific coast that are just one hour and a half by car from Santiago. Our drive will take us through Casablanca, known for its fine vineyards where we can pause for a wine-tasting experience (the latter is only available for private tours). Once we arrive to the coast, we’ll first visit Viña del Mar, also known as the “Garden City” because of its beautiful beaches, lovely parks and flower garden landscapes (such as the famous flower watch). It has become one of the central region’s most important tourism attractions. The peaceful seascape is an attractive complement for the city’s modern streets and infrastructure, turning it into an entertaining hub in constant movement. Our second destination is the picturesque city-port of Valparaiso, founded in the 16th century. You’ll marvel at the contrast between both cities, as the stylishness and beach culture of Viña is replaced here by a much more popular and artistic style. The port was declared by UNESCO a World Heritage Site in 2003 and offers a unique and fascinating architectural adventure. Built on several steep hills above the port, the homes and buildings on the hillsides can be reached by walking along its streets, climbing the long stairs or take the cable cars built in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Colorful homes dot the hills forming an irresistible landscape for photo enthusiasts and lovers of traditional sites. A visit to the Pablo Neruda Museum “La Sebastiana,” the former home of Pablo Neruda (one of Chile’s most renowned poets who was awarded a Nobel Prize in Literature,) can be arranged (private tours include the entrance fee). End of tour and return to Santiago.
