Best time to Visit

Good time to visit

Average time to visit

In Patagonia, early summer (November) can be lovely, and in late summer and autumn (March) the colors are stunning. But if you’re planning to go riding in the open steppes, midsummer is wonderful. In the peak summer months of January and February the trails in the park are much busier at this time. At any time of year, Torres del Paine has its own microclimate: unpredictable. Expect four seasons in one day.

Day time temperatures in the Atacama Desert are agreeable all year round. A characteristic of the desert climate is the marked fluctuation in temperature between day and night. In summer (December to February) the temperature varies between 28ºC during the day and 16ºC at night.

Chiloé is a year round destination, but there is likely to be better weather between November and March, when the sun makes an appearance between the rainclouds. Chiloé is a notoriously rainy, foggy place particularly along its pacific coast, something which only adds to the mysticism of the place.

Itinerary

From the awe-inspiring Atacama desert in the north to the rugged peaks of Patagonia in the south, this adventure takes you through Chile's most breathtaking landscapes, staying in the stylish and exclusive Tierra properties for the ultimate experience.

Tierra's collection of hotels are cool and design-led, with a high focus on personalized service adding to the exclusive experience. Extensive excursion menus ensure that each stay can be tailored to suit the individual and the attentive staff will do everything they can to make your stay is memorable. Each hotel boasts an enviable location and, although modern, somehow sits hand in hand with the natural surroundings without imposing on them.

Begin by flying up to Calama to experience the lunar red-rock landscapes of the Atacama desert. Explore altiplanic lagoons whose vivid waters contrast beautifully with the dusty orange ground, marvel at impressive geysers and enjoy some of the world's best stargazing by night before flying back to Santiago. Spend two nights here exploring Chile's cosmopolitan capital before flying south to Puerto Montt to continue the Tierra experience.

Your next stop is Tierra Chiloé, set right on the shores of this mystical island in northern Patagonia, surrounded by glassy waters and picturesque fishing villages. Here you can utilize the property's boat to explore the archipelago, as well as heading out on bikes, on foot or on horseback, observing nature and enjoying cultural excursions on the islands. From here, return to the airport and take a short flight even further south to Punta Arenas, continuing your journey to the iconic peaks of Torres del Paine National Park.

The distinctive and award-winning design of Tierra Patagonia awaits, the final stop on your Chile journey, overlooking Lago Sarmiento to the park's famous granite peaks. The main attraction here is walking and trekking of varying difficulties, the hardest yet most rewarding being the trek to the base of the towers. Alternative options include sailing towards glaciers, horseriding and waterfall visits, whilst specialist guides are available for those keen to try a spot of fishing or birdwatching.

After four nights in this dramatic corner of Chile, head back up to Santiago to connect with your flight back home or add on time at the vineyards in the Colchagua Valley for some pampering, accompanied by delicious wines and gourmet cuisine. Please contact our specialists for advice on how to alter this trip to suit your requirements.
