The 7 nights / 8 days itinerary will start with a tour of Santiago, Chile’s culturally vibrant capital followed by the port city of Valparaiso declared a world heritage site by UNESCO. Experience wine tasting some of the world's finest wines in the famous wine region between Santiago and Valparaiso. Fly south to Pucon, in Chile's Lake district to get ready for the eclipse observation and call it home for a few days. Pucon is influenced by a mixture of European and Indigenous traditions and the area is surrounded by scenic, lush green jungle like vegetation and massive lakes. We will relax at Termas Geométricas thermal pools immersed in Villarrica Sur National Park, near the town of Coñaripe and do some light hiking in Huerquehue National Park and admire its natural beauty.
