Day 1: UK/Ireland - night on board

Arrive at your UK/Ireland departure airport ready to check in for your overnight flight to Santiago, Chile. If your outbound flight leaves at dawn (before 4am) you must arrive at the airport the night before the selected departure day.

Day 2: Santiago

After checking into the hotel, spend the rest of the day at your leisure, exploring this beautiful city encircled by the Andes mountains and with a charming historic centre. We recommend strolling around the colonial centre and people-watching from one of the many café terraces.

Day 3: Santiago

Go on a city tour, from the cobblestoned neighbourhood of Lastarria, filled with greenery and 19th-century mansions, to Santa Lucia Hill where you'll capture amazing views. Then see Plaza de Armas, Santiago Cathedral, the La Moneda government house, impressive Plaza de la Constitución and busy Central Market. You'll also stop at Lapis Lazuli shop to admire local handicrafts and jewellery. Spend the rest of the day at leisure.

Day 4: Santiago - Calama - San Pedro de Atacama

Fly to Calama today and travel to San Pedro de Atacama, in the dusty plateaus of the Andes. On arrival, experience the breathtaking natural scenery surrounding the town.

Day 5: San Pedro de Atacama

The morning is at your disposal to relax or take an optional excursion to the Tatio Geysers and Machuca (surcharge). Afterwards, see the famous lunar terrain of Moon Valley just outside town, then Death Valley - home to the best views of the Andes Mountains and its towering volcanoes. At sunset, witness atmospheric red and golden tones over the landscape. Spend the evening at your leisure.

Embark on a full-day excursion to Valparaíso and Viña del Mar, two delightful coastal towns. You'll learn about Valparaíso's past as a key trading port and admire the colourful street art and harbour from the steep hills around the city. Continue to Viña del Mar, known for its wine production. Afterwards, return to Santiago.

Fly deep south to Puerto Arenas today and check into your waterside hotel in Puerto Natales, a once modest fishing port. See its pretty corrugated tin houses and cosy old-style lodgings.
