Highlights of Chile tour

(3 Reviews)

This tour in Chile has it all. Chile is the longest and and narrowest country in the world. The country is 4275 km long from north to south, but only 350 km at its widest point east to west. Partly because of that it has different landscapes and climates.

The native flora of Chile is characterized by a higher degree of endemism and relatively fewer species compared to the flora of other countries of South America.

In this trip, you will see all the highlights of Chile. The Atacama desert with its salt lake and geysers, the Patagonia desert with Torres del Paine as the star in that area. And literally go to the end of the world.

Our first stop is the Salar de Atacama – gray-white salt flats interspersed with wetlands. These are fragile habitats to endemic and migrating birds, e.g., pink flamingoes, the quaint behavior of which can be observed while following a natural trail with viewing points, all the while offering impressive 360° vistas.

Valle de la Luna

Half day

In the evening, one of the most expected moments is the sunset, and the best place to wait for it is the “Cordillera de la Sal” with its valleys, which are called Valle de Marte (Mars Valley) and Valle de la Luna (Moon Valley), both saline and clayed shapes, product of mineralogical folds that occurred hundred of millions years ago, originating little mountains with strange and capricious shapes, that sunset turns them into a moon landscape scene.

USD 60 per person

Located 2,070 km from Santiago, Arica is known as Chile’s “Northern Port” and the “City of Eternal Spring.” The average temperature during its coldest season is 15ºC.

Additional excursion
Rondreis travel Tour Chili Chile El Tatio

Tatio Geysers Tour

Full day. Incl breakfast & thermal baths

An early start, as we will be catching the sunrise up at the geothermal field. We first spend a good three hours exploring, on foot: steaming, spouting geysers, bubbling hot mud, green, yellow and orange algae – all in an ancient yet active volcanic setting; time also for a relaxing soak in a hot pool. Coming back down slowly from the slopes of the Andes we travel slowly, for you to able to enjoy and photograph the variety of spectacular views and endemic flora and fauna. A light trek is suggested along the lone mountain brook of Puripica, down in a cactus-lined canyon. Return to San Pedro in time for lunch.

Day 19 - 20Pirque

Although it’s only just outside Santiago, Pirque has a very small-town feel to it with scenic vineyard-lined roads, a gorgeous nature reserve and empanada stands aplenty. There’s nothing small-scale or low-key about its main attraction, however: Viña Concha y Toro, Chile’s largest and most industrial winery. The main road leads east from Concha y Toro up the south side of Cajón del Maipo toward San Alfonso. About 3km along it is a string of restaurants, including La Vaquita Echá.

Day 21Bye Chile

We combined the tour in Chile with a route through Argentinian Patagonia. For us an absolute added value. Good tips and travel planning through Mara. Great trip for walking. Above our expectations.

An excellent tour in Chile. With our kids aged 13 and 15 we were able to visit all the highlights in 25 days. New World has taken our wishes into account and has made the trip perfectly tailor-made. An extra day in Torres del Paine would have been better. So beautiful.
