Luxury Chile Vacations & Tours

Why should you travel on a Chile vacation with us?

From the ruby-red terrain of the Atacama to the grape-bearing vines of Mendoza. On our luxury tours to Chile, you can leave the guidebook safe at home.

From the mysteries of Easter Island to the glacial highs of Torres del Paine, Chile is a country of magnificent contrasts. This is a place for the grand, the adventurous, and the once in a lifetime – not to mention the cultural, the sophisticated and the gastronomic. Start off trekking through the isolation of Aysen and finish by drinking world-class wines in Valparaiso.

What to see and do in Chile

As ever, if you can’t see it here then we can still plan your tailor made Chile vacation for you.

BETWEEN THE CITY AND THE SKY

Stretching from arid desert to snow-smeared mountain peaks (imagine: delicate, icy spines stabbing into infamously clear skies), Chile is a must-go destination for a luxury vacation in the great outdoors. But it also lays claim to some truly vibrant cities. We could write an epic poem to Santiago. We’ll not put you through that. Here’s the ‘long story short’: Santiago has emerged from the shadow of its neighbors with (a) an incredibly vibrant food scene; (b) bustling, diverse neighborhoods (take us back to the trendy taverns of Barrio Lastarria); and (c) the sharp, jade box of the Museum of Memory, which happens to be one of our favorite experiences in the city.

ENTER THE ARID ATACAMA

During a somewhat prolonged journey from snowy Boston to the far tip of Chile, American travel writer Paul Theroux found himself in a small town (really a thin road and a jumble of houses) at the edge of the Atacama Desert. He observed that “it was near enough to the end of the earth to give me the impression that I was a solitary explorer in a strange land.” It’s what nudged him onward. The Atacama itself is the driest location on earth. The atmosphere here is so thin as to make it almost Martian. But, and excuse us for the wry joke, it won’t be the air that leaves your breathless – but the staggering, raw fact that this rarefied location is the best place in the world to gaze at the canopy of stars that hang above us.

THE PULL OF PATAGONIA

For an extremely on-it vacation in Chile there’s luscious Patagonia. At Black Tomato, our luxury tours and trips in Chile consistently draw traveler’s attentions to this part of the world. Its scenery tugs at the eye, from the spectacular Grey Beach (looking out over the glassy ocean, a nest for the sharp blue bulks of ice that float, jagged, within it), to the astoundingly fantastical, knotty Lenga Forest. Our Chile luxury tours can help you to drink each of these uniquely beautiful locations up, whether you want to tackle them by kayak, bike, or on foot. Watching over you is Chile’s most iconic mountain – Cuernos del Paine.

DRINK UP IN THE MAIPO VALLEY

Our luxury tours and vacations to Chile wouldn’t be complete (we insist) without visiting the country’s bountiful wine growing regions. The Maipo Valley is the second oldest wine region in the country, and hosts global, award-winning wineries such as Perez Cruz (imagine cracking open a bottle of Carmenere at the source). It’s quite possible (we’ve done it) to spend a full two days of your itinerary meandering from winery to winery. What’s more, our exclusive tour of the Casablanca Valley will give you a behind-the-curtains outlook on the truly magical grounds of the Catrala Vineyard. Luckily, their private chefs will keep you fed, soaking up all of that ‘grape juice.’

The best of Chile

Torres del Paine

Embrace the untamed wilderness of Chile’s Patagonia.

In South America’s finest National Park, you’ll hike up to Laguna Azul, track pumas off the beaten track and horse ride through the wilderness. All the while returning to our most exclusive properties like Explora Patagonia. Nestled deep in the heart of Torres del Paine National Park with center-stage views over Salto Chico river, sit back and relax at the lodge’s bath-house after a long day of glacier walking.

Atacama Desert

Escape to the driest place on earth.

Take a moment to enjoy the peacefulness and natural beauty of San Pedro de Atacama. The atmosphere here is thin but the sheer vastness and clear skies makes it one of the best places in the world to gaze at the Milky Way. With a private guide at your beck and call, you’ll head out in search of the flamingo filled waters at Los Flamencos National Reserve, the kaleidoscope of colors at Miscanti and Miñique lagoons and the many thermal pools that dot the landscape.

Colchagua Valley

Indulge in the vino-culture of Chile’s wine country.

Famous for producing some of Chile’s best red wines like Cabernet, Carménère, Syrah and Malbec, Colchagua Valley, just south of Santiago is not to be missed, Whilst staying at the heart of the valley in Clos Apalta Residence, we’ll take you soaring above the rolling vineyards and orchards via hot air balloon as you uncover the secrets behind red wine production in this Latin American country.
