Atacama Desert & Maule Valley Wine

Your journey begins in the north of Chile, where lies the driest non-polar region in the world; the Atacama Desert. A remarkable otherworldly sight, this wonderful desert boasts stunning geological formations and ancient culture to explore. Set out on a thrilling mountain bike excursion across some of the most arid and secluded regions of the desert, retracing old routes formed by the ancient citizens of this area. Discover the varied landscapes including the Valley of Mars, the Cordillera de la Sal and Rainbow Valley. Trek through the rugged mountains of Moon Valley, an unearthly landscape made up dunes, caverns and shark peaks which remarkably resemble the surface of the moon. This is a spectacular place to enjoy the Chilean sunset due to the astonishing sight created as the sun sinks behind the horizon.

Saddle up for a horseback tour of the fertile vine-striped hills of the Maule Valley. Amid the rows of Cabernet Sauvignon, Pinot Noir, and Chardonnay, you’ll learn the medieval roots of this storied wine region while following the wine trail to family-owned vineyards. Enjoy exclusive tastings of their finest vintages before retiring for the night to a luxuriously appointed 19th-century hacienda.

Ski to Surf

Leave the desert and vineyards behind, trading them instead for the dramatic Andes Mountains as you prepare for a thrilling heli-skiing excursion. Fly above the soaring Andes, land upon untouched peaks and carve fresh tracks into the pristine snow. In this exclusive experience, your expert Pelorus guide will ensure access to some of Chile’s best skiing experiences, surrounded by pure wilderness and sensational vistas of the mountains.

From the mountains to the coast, trade skiing for surfing as you fly by heli to Pichilemu on Chile’s Pacific Coast. A world-class surfing spot with unfailing surf breaks, uncrowded beaches and a strong swell, this is the perfect spot to surf, kiteboard and windsurf. More than just a surfing town, take a break from the waves to discover the enchanting combination of countryside, jungle, ocean and colonial architecture. Savour the mouth-watering flavours of fresh seafood over dinner under the stars on the candlelit beach, surrounded by the peaceful sounds of the waves. 

Easter Island

Off the Pacific Coast of Chile, lies the remote and unknown island of Rapa Nui, also known as Easter Island and famed for its distinctive moai statues. Steeped in mystery and authenticity, Rapa Nui holds its own unique culture, language and spirit that is unlike anywhere else in Chile. This exotic island boasts a wonderful underwater world with abundant dive sights and excellent surfing.

Lake District & Mapuche Immersion

Return to the mainland to visit Chile’s Lake District, exploring this gorgeous mix of volcanoes and glassy lakes on a white-water rafting expedition. You’ll experience Level 3-4 rapids, passing through serene valleys and thrilling canyons.

Back on dry land, embark on a mountain trek to Quillehue Lagoon and its volcano and ancient araucaria (monkey puzzle) Lost World landscape. Here you’ll meet the Mapuche—an indigenous community deeply bonded with nature and ‘Mother Earth’. You’ll learn about their fascinating way of life and be welcomed into their homes.

The finale of your adventure sees you flown by helicopter over the shining lakes and looming volcanoes for a paddleboarding experience in a secret lagoon. Utterly alone, you’ll explore this rarely-seen spot and commune with the pristine wilderness.
