Turquoise lakes and jagged granite mountains, floating ice floes and grazing guanacos combine to create an incomparable scenery of Patagonia. And on a boat trip, you cruise on the Fjord Última Esperanza to the glaciers Balmaceda and Serrano in the Bernardo O'Higgins National Park. It is rough out here and magical.

Punta Arenas

Day 7-9: Punta Arenas

You travel to Punta Arenas, one of the southernmost cities on earth. This is where the American continent ends. And that is how it feels. On an excursion you cross the famous Strait of Magellan and enter Tierra del Fuego. In Parque Pingüino Rey, King Penguins with orange beaks and up to nearly one meter tall, breed in groups, waddle around and groom their plumage. There is a special aura that pervades Tierra del Fuego, which you soak up here.

Puerto Varas

Day 9-12: Puerto Varas

You fly to the Lake Region. Puerto Varas carries its own magic with its panorama of the sparkling Lago Llanquihue and the snowy volcanoes on the horizon, with German architecture and inviting cafes. The inexhaustible rapids of Río Petrohué break over the volcanic rocks and roar impetuously. With its cone shape and snow-capped dome, Volcán Osorno looks like something out of a picture book. And on the island of Chiloé, you discover colorful stilt houses, wooden churches and indigenous mythology.

Pucón
Pucón

Day 12-14: Pucón

The southern Chile is nicknamed Chilean Switzerland due to its mountainous nature and European immigration history. However, with its endemic vegetation, indigenous culture and concentration of volcanoes, the beauty of the area around Pucón is very unique. You get drawn into this rustic artwork of clear waters, volcanic cones cloaked in snow and opulent forests. And on an optional ascent of the active Villarrica Volcano, you experience firsthand one of the country's most imposing spectacles.

La Serena

Day 14-17: La Serena

La Serena is the next stop on your journey. Sightsee old churches and green parks of Chile's second-oldest city. Explore the Valle del Elqui, which looks like a blooming oasis in the arid surroundings. At a local distillery, you get a special point of view on how the national drink Pisco is made. And a fishing boat takes you to the islands in front of Punta de Choros, where agile Humboldt Penguins trot on the rocks. Occasionally, even dolphins and whales keep you company.

San Pedro de Atacama

Day 17-20: San Pedro de Atacama

Pink-feathered flamingos gather on the shores of Andean lagoons. Between small desert settlements with traditional adobe architecture stretches the crusted salt field of the immeasurable Salar de Atacama. The fascinating desert scenery of Valle de la Luna looks like the ground of an alien planet. And smoke rises from the bubbling geysers of El Tatio while vicuñas and rheas roam the mountains. This and more is presented by the Atacama Desert around the oasis of San Pedro de Atacama.

Santiago

Enigmatic ceremonial sites with proud Moai stone figures, volcanic relics and the dreamlike coastline create a mystique that you fully indulge in.
