Luxury travel to Chile & Argentina begins first with a helicopter ride to the waters of Chile’s Lakes District. One part working hacienda and one part Relais & Chateaux hotel, and Beyond Vira Vira acts as an idyllic retreat in the shadow of Volcano Villarica. Over three days, you’ll kick off your journey with a myriad of bespoke adventures through this water-laden playground. Hiking, horseback riding, fishing, cheese making, and hot tub soaking are all on the menu due to its coveted location.
Make your way north to the deserts of Atacama. Awasi Atacama is one of the most exclusive offerings in this dry land, therefore allowing you to spend the days as you please. Each of the ten cottages boasts its own private guide and vehicle. As a result, adrenaline-packed adventure can easily be reached by way of 4×4, horse, mountain bike, and foot, while relaxation and quiet luxury can be found within the hotel’s walls at the end of each day. With a landscape this vast and a hotel this intimate, it will seem like you have the entire place to yourself.
Chile’s colorful capital of Santiago is next. From your luxury Lastarria accommodations, you will have ample opportunity to explore the city with your private guide. Get ready for a unique journey through the history, architecture, and food scene of Santiago.
Just a quick flight over the Andes lies the wine-soaked lands of Mendoza. Luxury travel to Chile & Argentina culminates with three days amid the vines and villas of this beautiful destination. Hole up in your gorgeous villa accommodations in the Uco Valley and treat yourself to three days of wine-focused experiences. Whether dining on the cuisine of Siete Fuegos, tasting your way through the prestigious wineries of Uco Valley, or witnessing the sunrise over the Andes from the back of your horse, you will leave this place truly enchanted.
Finally conclude your luxury Chile & Argentina travels in Argentina’s capital of Buenos Aires. Your private guide will lead you to some of the best the city has to offer. Enjoy an exclusive tango show, get lost in the neighborhoods appropriately dubbed the “Paris of Latin America”, and cook your way through a traditional Argentinian feast with a private chef.
