Detailed Description

The romance of Argentina and Chile emanates from the blossoming wild blackberries of Patagonia and is embodied in the cosmopolitan ambiance of Buenos Aires and Santiago. Your 9-day tour is best experienced during the Southern Hemisphere summer and autumn (January to June), when the vineyards are ready for harvest and the cities welcome visitors with lavish art and music festivals. Your passionate South American getaway begins with your arrival in Santiago, Chile. Your private transfer meets you at Comodoro Arturo Merino Benitez International Airport before escorting you to a luxurious hotel near the heart of the city. The remainder of the day is yours to get acquainted with Santiago at your preferred pace.

The next morning, you and your partner travel to the Maipo Valley for a day in the vineyards. Visit various wineries and sample stunning varietals before returning to Santiago for the night. Then, you have a private transfer to the airport for your flight south to Puerto Varas. The charming ambiance allows you and your partner to easily settle into the historic setting. Visit the historic wood churches, or enjoy the walking trails offering a view of Osorno Volcano. The next day takes you to Chiloe to traverse Chile’s second largest island. Discover the unique traditions that connect and separate the island from mainland Chile before viewing the remarkable penguin colony nesting on the Pacific Ocean shores.

Afterward, you meet your private transfer at the hotel to begin your journey through the Andean Mountains to reach Bariloche. Delight in the romantic landscapes offering secluded views to mountain peaks, waterfalls, rivers, and lakes en route to the charming town situated in Argentina’s Lakes District. The remainder of the day is yours to indulge in the romantic alpine atmosphere or relish the artisan chocolates made in town. The next day is at your leisure to delight in the splendors in and around Bariloche. You could rent a bike to explore the Small Circuit leading around the local lakes or traverse the trails of Nahuel Huapi National Park.

Next, you fly from Bariloche to Buenos Aires. Your private transfer leads you from Comodoro Arturo Merino Benitez International Airport to your hotel along the charming cobblestone streets of the Recoleta neighborhood. In the evening, you and your partner share a passionate embrace while learning the steps of tango with a private dance instructor. The following morning, your guide meets you at the hotel eager to show you the distinct neighborhoods of Buenos Aires, taking in the charms of Palermo, the art of La Boca, and the unique cemetery of Recoleta—home to Eva “Evita” Peron. On the final day, your private transfer meets you at the hotel to bring you to the airport for your flight home. You can always extend your romantic getaway with time on the beach in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil or an adventurous escapade in Cuzco, Peru.
