Luxury Travel Chile

Please note: this private Chile tour is an example, as all of our luxury journeys are custom-made.

Chilean Wine Country, Millahue Valley (3 nights)

Following your arrival into Santiago, embark on a 2-hour drive to unwind in Chile’s spectacular wine country. Arrive at Vik Chile in the Millahue Valley, owned by Alexander Vik whose aim was to produce the best wines in South America. Enjoy lunch at the restaurant terrace, overlooking the beautiful infinity pool and the green valley. In the late afternoon, enjoy a gentle hike or mountain biking excursion in the picturesque valley with your expert guide.

During your time in this region, head into the famed Colchagua Valley for a full day of wine tasting at Chile’s top vineyards. Here, you’ll learn about the rich history of Chilean wine-making, which began in the 16th century by Spanish conquistadors and developed in the 19th century as French varietals were produced, including the iconic Carménère. As guests of Blue Parallel, you will have exclusive access to some of the region’s best vineyards. Among the highlights is lunch at the new restaurant of famed South American chef, Francis Mallmann, set in the Viña Montes vineyards.

Explore the expansive vineyards of Vik Chile with the estate’s hosts. Then tour beautiful La Cruz hill on horseback for panoramic views of the property before sitting down for a delicious private picnic. To relax, head to the infinity pool or request a rejuvenating spa treatment. Later, tour the state-of-the-art Vik winery, where you’ll learn about the estate’s different grape varieties.

Santiago (2 nights)

From Vik, head north to the capital city of Santiago. This modern metropolis offers fantastic restaurants and is home to bohemian neighborhoods. Your tailor-made Santiago tour can include any or all of the following: the Plaza de Armas with its 18th century cathedral in the heart of the city, Constitution Plaza and La Moneda Palace (the seat of executive power), the Chilean Museum of Pre-Columbian Art, and the attractive neighborhoods of París-Londres and Santa Lucía. You’ll also get to visit La Chascona, the private home of Pablo Neruda, Chile’s most celebrated writer.

The San Cristóbal lookout point is a popular hangout spot for locals. From here you can try a local juice native to Chile as you absorb breathtaking views. We will recommend top Chilean restaurants for local seafood paired with fantastic regional wines. One evening, enjoy a unique culinary experience at the private kitchen of a local chef who will teach you about Chilean culture through the country’s typical dishes.

Easter Island (3 nights)

Continue your luxury Chile tour with a 5.5 hour flight to Easter Island from Santiago. Upon arrival at your lodge, Explora Rapa Nui, marvel at the dramatic open landscape and Pacific Ocean views. Begin your first afternoon with a private guided hike to Pui Rano Raraku to explore the lower slopes of the volcano, then visit the Moai quarry. This quarry once supplied the island’s stone that the Rapa Nui used to create the mysterious Moai statues that have perplexed visitors ever since Dutch explorers came across the island on Easter Sunday in 1722.

During the next two days, explore spectacular volcanic craters with your private guide. You’ll also visit the Tongariki, home to the island’s iconic row of Moai statues. Enjoy a full-day hike of the remote northern coast, characterized by its rugged landscape.

Afterwards, visit Anakena Beach to swim in crystal clear waters, then snorkel at beautiful Ovahe beach. Explore Orongo, the ancient ceremonial village that hosted the Tangata Manu (birdman) competition. You’ll get to witness exciting contests of strength that celebrate the unique Rapa Nui culture. In the evenings, enjoy panoramic sunset views and take in the magnetic energy of the island during delicious dinners at your lodge.
