This itinerary combines some of the highlights of central and southern Chile. Spend a couple of days exploring historic Santiago taking in the culture and relaxing in the stylish bars before flying south to Chiloe Island. Here you can take in the verdant, rolling hills in the north and lush forest in the south, and with just a couple of towns, Ancud and Castro, this is a true wilderness. See the island by land, by boat, on horseback or by foot and incorporate biking, trekking and nature walks. Next, you return to the Chilean mainland and to the heart of the Lake District where you will see superb panoramic views of Lake Llanquihue and Osorno Volcano. Then experience the jewel of Patagonia, Torres del Paine National Park where you can discover a host of trails through the rivers, forests and dazzling glaciers. Finally head for Punta Arenas for your flight to Santiago and enjoy your final night in the Chilean capital.
