15 night/16 days itinerary in Chile
for 2 adults
This trip allows you to take in two of the most famous and contrasting climes in this South American country; you’ll traverse from the north by way of the desert of Atacama to the glacial ice fields of Southern Patagonia. However, not only that you will also take in the fascinating Easter Island; the remote volcanic island (still Chilean territory) located a 5 hour flight from the Chilean mainland. No trip to Chile is complete without some time in its charming and dynamic capital; Santiago. Take time out to enjoy the burgeoning gastronomic scene of Chile and sample some of the famous wines in the wine bars of Santiago whilst enjoying the dramatic location of this city between the Andes Mountains and the rolling coastal range. This is a fantastic opportunity to see the main sights of Chile and experience the mystical monolithic statues of Easter Island; steeped in folklore and the most far flung inhabited island in the world.
