The Spirit of Chile

Chile

9 days

Summary

Enjoy the Spirit of Chile combining the driest desert of the world with the magnificent Patagonia on the south with this Special package.

Tierra Patagonia Hotel & Spa sits on a bluff where the South American pampa meets Lake Sarmiento. The building is immersed in the landscape and emerges from the hillside. The award winning architecture complements the flow of the geology in this privileged location and showcases the magnificent views of the Torres del Paine National Park, declared a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve in 1978. Inside, wood clad walls emanate warmth, safety and protection – a cosy hideaway after a day spent discovering the amazing Patagonian outdoors. The essence of the interior decoration mirrors the design of our sister hotel, Tierra Atacama and here, as there, furnishings and textiles were hand made by Chilean craftspeople, using natural materials from the region, high quality workmanship and inspiration from the surrounding estancias as well as the influence of the native Tehuelche people. Enjoy days full of activities in the south before you head north to treat yourself to eco-tourism in Chile at one of the world’s unique destinations, the Altiplano of the Atacama Desert. Tierra Atacama is a boutique hotel on the edge of San Pedro de Atacama. The hotel provides guest experiences that combine outdoor adventure and sports with indoor comforts, hospitality and excellent service. The architecture, interiors, grounds and spa of Tierra Atacama were designed by Chilean professionals with an aim of preserving local cultural influences while also creating a place that allows guests to relax, spoil themselves and enjoy the good-life in this unusual part of the earth.

This deal also applies if you want to combine Tierra Chiloe instead of Tierra Atacama or Tierra Patagonia.
