Our “Taste of” signature city stays invite you to linger longer and delve deeper. And since Santiago and Valparaiso are many people’s first introduction to the Latin American continent, it’s worth slowing down and taking it all in.
Santiago is a modern and cosmopolitan city with a fantastic culinary scene. So, if you’re keen to start your food adventures right away, let us organise a cooking class, or street-food focused walking tour! And of course, you cannot miss Chile’s excellent wines! The Casablanca, Colchagua and Maipo Valleys are all within easy reach of the capital. Ask our expert wine-lovers for recommendations…after all, it is our job to research! We love Chile’s signature grape variety, Carmenere and white wine aficionados should try the local Chardonnay. Better yet, stay a few nights at a wine lodge and enjoy world-class wine and views of the Andes.
Valparaiso is just 90 minutes from Santiago and is a must-see UNESCO World Heritage-listed port city. Lose yourself in the hilly city and discover an intense, atmospheric palette of colours and flavours. Bohemian and colourful, Valparaiso’s labyrinthine streets have long inspired poets and writers.
Are you more of a nature-lover than a city-slicker? Then you’ll love Santiago’s proximity to the Andes! Just 100km from the city centre you’ll find Andean lagoons, towering volcanoes, waterfalls, hot springs and glaciers. Maybe you’re a hardcore hiker or just want to enjoy some spectacular mountain scenery? No matter what you decide you can back in Santiago in time for dinner. And what could be better than world-class cuisine and Chilean wine at the end of a day outdoors?
