Bienvenidos! Welcome to Chile.

An arrival transfer from the airport to your hotel is included in your tour. This complimentary transfers is only applicable on Day 1 of your Intrepid trip or if pre tour accommodation is booked through Intrepid (please advise flight arrival details at least 14 days prior to departure if you wish to have this transfer provided).

You can arrive to your hotel at any time where an envelope with the necessary vouchers and contact details will be awaiting for you.

Although Santiago covers a large area, the city centre is quite compact and easy to get around. The city's centre is roughly triangular in shape with the Plaza de Armas, the main plaza and home to the Cathedral, sitting in the centre. Panning out from here are wall-to-wall shops, restaurants and parks. For a more serene look at Chilean life, head out to Barrio Bella Vista, Santiago's 'Paris Quarter'.

Set within a circle of snow-capped mountains, Santiago is vibrant, artistic and gourmet - and the gateway to adventures in the snow, sea or desert.
