UK - Santiago

Take a day to wander the wide boulevards and get lost in some of the best museums and galleries and learn the history of one of the continents most attractive and interesting cities, from one of our fabulous local guides. Spending a morning with them you will uncover some of the true gems, and local cafés, of this arty and cosmopolitan hub including the delightful Barrio Concha y Toro neighbourhood, with its charming plaza and pretty Colonial architecture.

Atacama Desert and Chilean winelands

The cool Pacific winds beckon you out of the city to the Colchagua Wine Valley. Flanked to the east by the Andes, and to the west by the Pacific Ocean its cool Pacific breezes create a terroir perfectly suited to producing the full-bodied wines for which the area is famous. Feast on fresh produce and kick back with a heady red over a luxuriously leisurely lunch in a local vineyard restaurant. Get ready to embrace desert life as you fly away from the verdant valley to the moon-like Atacama Desert. The surreal lunar landscape holds a treasure trove of unexpected treats in the shape of punchy pink flamingos, steaming geysers, snow capped volcanoes and some truly extraordinary vegetation.  

Santiago, Guayaquil

Return to Santiago for one last night before boarding the Silver Explorer at Guayaquil for your 14 night culinary expedition cruise. With ample opportunities to spot birds and wildlife, absorb fascinating history and areas of unrivalled beauty like Moon Valley. Enjoy a Nazca Lines flight over the geoglyphs, explore Chilean vineyards and indulge in delicious food and wine parings.

Trujillo, Isla Guanape, Lima

Located about 9 hours north of Lima, Trujillo is an attractive colonial city retaining much of its original charm with elegant mansion lined streets. Nearby Chan Chan, ancient capital of Incan tribe the Chimu, makes for a fascinating day trip. Continue to Isla Guanape, a biological reserve for sea birds including Peruvian Pelicans, Inca Terns and Blue-footed Boobies and home to large colonies of sea lions. Your expedition continues to Peru’s capital, Lima, a vibrant city with an oceanfront setting, colonial-era splendour, sophisticated dining and non-stop nightlife.
