Exploring lively barrios

You’ll touch down in Santiago ready to explore the origins of this fascinating country. Our local guide will whisk you away to the Orly in the centre of the city. The capital of Chile wows with colonial grandeur, pristine boulevards and a population of people who are chilled by day, and lively and friendly by night. Our guides will help you get under the skin of this charming city. Explore lively barrios, colourful art galleries and a buzzing cafe culture, just the right way to ease you into your South American adventure.

Head north

Next you’ll jet off to San Pedro de Atacama, the charming country town set among some of Chile’s most spectacular scenery, perched 2,500 metres above sea level. You’ll be pampered at the Altiplanico while our tours take you right to the heart of its best offerings, without any fuss. Stroll among the mesmerising ambience of sunset over the Valley of the Moon. The trip also takes you to the country's largest salt flats, spotted pink with flamingos and lipped by grand volcanoes. Explore fields of steaming thermal waters geysers at Tatio Geysers and its rocky landscapes. The clear night-time skies make this one of the best places to see stars on earth.

To the most isolated civilisation on the planet

Go where few go as we fly you to Easter Island, among the world’s most remote travel attractions, mysterious and beguiling, and sitting windswept in the middle of the sea. You’ll be greeted by locals as you step off the plane with flower necklaces, before setting off on a tour of Moai statues and the volcano crater. Home will be the charming Rapa Nui. Get to grips with the island with our expert guides, who will show you hidden volcanoes, secret beaches and coves with turquoise waters, formed by nature for utter relaxation. Find the charming artefacts of the curious and friendly natives who live here, almost cut off from the rest of the world. Find lava tunnels and caves used as hiding places during tribal conflicts. But more chilling than anything are the stone carved statues, which face inland waiting for the sunset, ever-expectant. There are many theories of how and why they are here, but are believed to be the remnants of a lost civilisation, perhaps some of the greatest ancient relics on the planet. Listen to the stories of our guides as they take you on a journey to reveal hidden clues that hold the key to one of the world’s most fascinating mysteries.
