Patagonia + Chile (Private Tour)
5 days with Alexander+Roberts Rating:
Day 1 Welcome to Santiago, Chile
On arrival, you’ll be warmly greeted and escorted to The Singular Santiago Lastarria. Set in an elegant building inspired by the neoclassical landmarks of the capital, our luxury hotel enjoys a privileged location in the cultural and historic center of the city.
This afternoon, you’ll join our engaging native-born guide for a private walking tour of the capital, beginning with Colonial-era landmarks like La Moneda Palace. Continue through the lively streets of downtown to the Plaza de Armas to see the Cathedral and City Hall. Then experience a slice of daily life in the city as you join residents at the lively Mercado Central. Since 1872, Santiago citizens have been coming to this sprawling French-inspired landmark to shop for fresh produce and seafood.
Discover some of Santiago’s loveliest and most avant garde districts and take a short stroll through Parque Forestal, a lovely riverside park. Refresh in a local café with an ice cream or cup of coffee and then visit La Chascona, the former home of Pablo Neruda; hailed as South America’s greatest poet, Mr. Neruda won the Nobel Prize for literature in 1971. End your day atop San Cristobal Hill for spectacular views over the city.
Day 2 Onward to Patagonia
Fly to Punta Arenas, where you’ll be met for an unforgettable overland journey to Patagonia Camp. South America’s finest luxury camp is set on Lake Toro, facing the granite peaks of the Paine Massif. Nestled in a beech forest, each of the 20 yurts features an en suite bath and private terrace overlooking the lake. Your stay at Patagonia Camp includes many uniquely planned expeditions, from easy to active. Each evening, the Camp’s experienced guides and naturalists will present the three included explorations that will be offered the next day - based upon weather and terrain conditions. Depending on your personal interests and physical condition, you can choose from these full and half-day guided excursions. They encompass gentle hikes, invigorating treks and even kayaking and fishing. In addition, horseback riding, boating on Lago Grey and Zodiac expeditions to the Serrano Glacier can be arranged. (B+D)
Day 3 Adventures in Patagonia
Enjoy your first of two full days exploring Patagonia’s soaring landscapes and pristine waterways with our Camp’s expert guides and naturalists. You might venture deep within Torres del Paine National Park or join an exclusive activity closer to Camp. Each evening, the Camp’s staff will present the excursions to be offered the next day. They’re led by our Camp’s superb naturalists, so you’ll learn much about Patagonia’s geology, flora and fauna. At the end of each thrilling day here at Patagonia Camp, you might relax at the bar with a Pisco Sour or a glass of fine Chilean wine. Or you might just retreat to your private terrace to enjoy the breathtaking views over mountain and lake. (B+L+D)
Day 4 Another Day in Patagonia
Arise once again to the breathtaking natural scenery that surrounds our Camp. Breathe in the pristine air and sit down to a hearty breakfast. Then embark on the naturalist guided expedition that you’ve chosen for your last day in Patagonia – perhaps an easy hike or a more challenging full-day trek deeper into these remote landscapes. End your day on a high-note, admiring the lake and mountain views from your private terrace. Then join your fellow Camp guests for another congenial dinner in the restaurant. (B+L+D)
