Soulful Santiago is perfect hit of Chile, and this four day shortbreak will take you from winding through the historical city streets and plazas of the city’s oldest quarters to soaking up hilltop panoramic views; from sipping world class wines in the Casablanca Valley to exploring the colourful labyrinth of cliff-clinging houses in coastal Valparaiso. If you’ve only got a few days, this is the way to spend them.

Why you'll love this trip
  • Fall under Santiago’s spell as you uncover the colonial charm, neoclassical plazas and stylish neighbourhoods of the Chilean capital with the inside insight of a local guide.
  • Wind your way through the fruitful countryside of the Casablanca Valley and stop at one of the world class Chilean wineries for a premium tasting.
  • Discover the murals of Valparaiso’s street art scene and explore the vibrant maze of hillside houses and hidden secrets on a guided walking tour of the Chilean cultural capital.

Is this trip right for you?
  • On Short Breaks, you maintain a good level of independence and freedom, with the added bonus of having the details sorted out for you. You’ll have lots of free time and you won’t be accompanied by a Trip Leader. This means that all included activities and tours will be run by different local Intrepid partners, and these may operate independently from each other. The included activities and transfers will operate on a join-in basis, which means that you could have your Adventure all to yourself, or others may join you along the way. If you would prefer to travel in a group with a dedicated Trip Leader, just get in touch with your booking agent and they will take you through some alternatives.

Important notes

1. This Short Break Adventure is a ‘join in’ group departure, which means you are not accompanied by an Intrepid group leader – our local representative fills this role – and the configuration of any fellow travellers in the group might change during the trip.
2. This trip will run with a minimum of one person, so you may be joined by other travellers booked on the same date as you, or you may be on your own.
3. This trip is operated by one of our local partners in Chile and therefore you may be joined by a mixture of Intrepid-booked passengers and other travellers during activities.
Information may be delivered in English and Spanish, or just English depending on the requirements of the group.
4.In addition to a negative PCR test, Traveler’s Affidavit, and health insurance, entry into Chile currently requires submitting proof of vaccination in advance of travel. As this validation process can take a while, it is recommended that you submit your electronic validation request 30 days in advance of Travel. The link to submit and more information is available here: You must also take a PCR test upon arrival, and quarantine until results are returned. We recommend booking 1-2 pre nights before your trip to ensure no activities are missed.

Overpriced & Underdelivered - don’t do it, I would never contemplate using Intrepid again & I would never recommend using the company to anybody.

The service that was provided surpass my expectations to the point I did not mind going on another alone trip. Knowing that the tour guide and advisor was responding to every question and made suggestions and advice.

The local tour guides are very knowledgeable and showed their enthusiasm. However on the downside, there is a breakdown for the communication from local tour operator. There is no information available for me, as details and times for the tour pick up. I had to make an effort and reach out…they also swapped the planed itinerary without any notice. It’s very unorganised.
