Arrival in Santiago de Chile & City Tour

Day 1

Start your adventure in the cosmopolitan hub of Santiago. Cradled between the jagged mountain peaks and the expansive Pacific Ocean, the capital city is also a stepping stone on the way to an expedition to the Andes. Check into your hotel and get ready for a city tour. Visit the main square of Santiago which boasts a unique combination of colonial and modern architecture. Next, discover the picturesque and upscale neighborhoods of Vitacura and Las Condes and crane your neck to see their towering skyscrapers. For a wonderful end to a perfect day, ascend to the top of Santa Lucia Hill where the city was founded in 1541 and delight in the sweeping views of Santiago from above. After the tour, leisurely descend and return to your hotel to relax.

During a period of rapid growth in the 19th century, a network of sixteen funicular railways was built to accommodate the changes and to this day, they continue to serve the city’s residents. From Valparaíso, journey along the coast to the stunning beaches of Viña del Mar. Also known as the Garden City, explore its many parks and green spaces, natural sanctuaries from the rest of the town.
