Santiago, Valparaiso & The Wine Country
There are few cities in the world who wake up to the view that Santiago has. The great snow-capped Andes loom over the bustling metropolis below, a city of culture, energy, and world class cuisine. It is a mélange of people from all corners of the country – a third of Chileans call it home – where each neighborhood emanates its own flavors.
Santiago is the main gateway to Chile, paving the way into the lakes, mountains, vineyards, and beaches beyond. A short drive away, the bohemian, cultured city of Valparaíso sits on the shores of the Pacific Ocean offering a delightful combination of style and sand-in-your-toes free spirit. It’s difficult to define Valparaíso’s magic, the street art, salty sea, and music drifting from every house adding to its charm.
Oyikil can create unforgettable itineraries to this unique region, following in the footsteps of vacationing Chileans on the beautiful beaches, or venturing into the many natural parks and reserves. Chile’s world famous vineyards stretch endlessly into the horizon, offering tastings and tours. With Argentina’s Mendoza Wine Region on the same latitude, guests can combine a trip to both destinations with ease.
