Earlier this year I spent one month travelling across Chile. I started out at the very tip of the country and slowly started making my way south…and then I only got about halfway across the country because it turns out, Chile is massive!
Chile’s dramatic landscapes were one of the highlights of my big trip across South America, and today I’m excited to hopefully give one of you the chance to experience a taste of this country. Marmot has just launched their #FallInLoveWithTheOutside campaign and there is an 11-DAY TRIP FOR 2 TO CHILE up for grabs!
Your Chile Itinerary
Day 1: Welcome to Santiago! Get settled into your hotel before embarking on a half day tour where you’ll get to know this charming city famous for its mix of beautiful colonial architecture, bohemian flare and modern skyscrapers. Enjoy an evening on your own exploring the hotspots in neighborhoods like Lastarria or Bellavista.
Day 2: Today you’ll find yourself arriving in Polynesia…yes, you heard right! Easter Island makes up the southernmost island of the Polynesian Triangle and you’ll have the chance to enjoy everything that this remote destination has to offer.
Day 3: Spend your day exploring the best of Rapa Nui’s archaeological sites like the famous standing heads of Ahu Tongariki.
Day 4: Hike up the Rano Kau volcano or spend a day basking in the sun at Anakena Beach.
Day 5: Pack your bags and head back to the mainland. Upon arrival in Santiago head out to the Rosario Valley, which is one of the world’s most renowned wine regions.
Day 6: Enjoy wine touring and all of the stunning scenery that comes with it.
Day 7: Today you’ll head south to the heart of Chilean Patagonia. Torres del Paine National Park is home to some of the world’s greatest nature and will be your personal playground for four magical days.
Day 8: Go horseback riding around your lodge or do a panoramic tour around the national park. Enjoy a light trek or some puma spotting.
Day 9: Head toward Gray Glacier; adventurous types can approach it via sea kayak!
Day 10: Save your energy for the grueling yet magnificent hike to Las Torres basin. This full day trek will have you sweating but marvelling all the while at one of South America’s most iconic peaks.
Day 11: Time to say adios to Chile and its natural splendor. Fly back to Santiago for your departing flight home. Hasta la proxima!
