Santiago

Overview

Santiago sits in the Central Valley, set against a magnificent backdrop of the mighty Andes to the east and the Coastal Mountain Range to the west. The location is outstanding for a variety of tailored luxury holidays. It’s an hour from the coast, less than two hours from the ski slopes tucked away in the mountains and around 30 minutes from some of Chile’s illustrious vineyards.

Santiago is the fifth largest city in South America, but one that hasn’t lost sense of its identity. There’s still plenty of old-world colonial charm and indigenous relics to be discovered among the skyscrapers. On a luxury holiday to Santiago with Lightfoot Travel, we’ll have you staying in a stylish boutique hotel in a hip part of town like the arty Bellavista quarter.

Santiago also serves as the gateway to some of the best scenery in Chile and is the starting point to outdoor adventure itineraries. Activities in the surrounding area including amazing skiing and climbing among the Andean volcanoes, plus mountain biking and hiking.

One of our favorite excursions from the city is to hike to the summit of towering Cerro San Cristobel. The sublime panorama captures Santiago and the surrounding valley at its most striking. The adventure-junky in us will enjoy rafting through the high-speed rapids of Maipo River too.

For relaxation after that high-octane action, what better place is there than the idyllic vineyards outside the city in Rapel Valley? Some of Chile’s oldest wine produces, like Concha y Toro, are found here, producing internationally recognised Carménère and Syrah wines.

With a tailor-made luxury holiday from Lightfoot Travel, our South America specialists will create your perfect Santiago itinerary including vineyards tours and activities.
