Chile is a diverse and captivating country. It's hard to do it justice in a 2-week holiday, but we think we've struck a good balance, showcasing some of the diverse regions the country incorporates.

Tierra Adventure and Spa hotels offer a high standard of accommodation and customer service and their focus is all about combining inspiring experiences with moments of pure relaxation. They offer a number of different excursions and activities at each location and these are all included in the cost of your stay. You get to choose what you do each day from their extensive offering. This itinerary is based around using their properties in 3 locations in Chile and gives some examples of how you might spend your days. Using the same hotels not only gives a continuity of standards but brings with it some cost advantages.

The holiday starts off with a night in Santiago where you can recover from your long flight and begin to immerse yourself in the spirit of Chile. The following morning you'll fly up to the Atacama Desert where you will spend three nights exploring one of the driest places on earth. This is followed by a flight down to Puerto Montt and a transfer over to Chiloe Island. Three nights spent here will allow you to explore on foot, by bike and even by boat. Chiloe Island is known for its historic wooden churches, colourful stilted houses and colonies of comical penguins.

We're not quite finished yet - after Chiloe Island you'll transfer back to Puerto Montt for a flight down to Punta Arenas, the gateway to Patagonia and Torres del Paine National Park. A scenic drive will take you to Tierra Patagonia, a stylish hotel, that really does manage to blend into the landscape. From here you will explore Torres del Paine and all it entails. The scenery here is breath-taking and makes a great subject for photographers, the Paine Massif dominating the landscape.

Afterwards, you'll fly back to Santiago for 2 nights. It doesn't end here... you'll go out with a bang on your last day and visit the vibrant contrasting coastal towns of Valparaiso and Vinas del Mar. On the way you'll drive through some of Chile's vineyards and stop for a tour and some wine tasting.

Throughout this trip you will stay at quality hotels, providing a comfortable haven when you return from a day of exploration. You can indulge in spa treatments and dine on fine fare, making the experience all the more enjoyable. Excursions are led by excellent, qualified guides, ensuring you get the most out of your stay in Chile. Flying between locations means you spend more time in the places of interest, maximising your time here.
