Exodus Travels in Chile
We joined our trusty local travel expert Alex in Santiago Chile for 12 days of exploring the country’s most iconic sights. An Exodus Travels tour lets you discover many of the top attractions in a destination making for a true trip of a lifetime. Have you always wanted to see Patagonia? You’ll see it. Have you wanted to step foot in the Atacama Desert? You’ll do it! Looking for amazing wildlife experiences? They’ve got that too. We did it all on our tour of Chile.
Our Exodus Travels Tour was divided into four parts. The urban region of Santiago de Chile and Valparaiso, The Atacama Desert, The Lake Region, and Chile’s Patagonia.
On the first official day of the trip, we joined Alex for a day tour of Santiago taking us up to its best viewpoint and stopping at all its major tourist attractions in the Old Town. Staying in the modern downtown area, we had the best of both worlds seeing it all.
Stop 1 – Santiago and Valparaiso
When doing an Exodus Travels tour, we recommend arriving a day or two early to relax and see the sights. Dave and I enjoyed two days in the city before the rest of our group arrived and we felt relaxed and ready to hit the road when we joined the group. We learned quickly that once the trip begins, we were in for a nonstop itinerary of flying from one amazing adventure to the next.
Stop 2 – The Atacama Desert
Our tour included 5 flights throughout Chile with our first flight taking us to the Atacama Desert. We stayed right in the heart of San Pedro de Atacama where we spent three days seeing the top attractions.
This massive salt lake is one of the top places to visit in Chile with incredible natural attractions including El Tatio Geysers, Miscanti Lagoon, Miñiques Lagoon, and the flamingoes of The Chaxa Lagoon.
Stop 3 – Lake District
It was then onto another flight connecting through Santiago to explore the Lake District of Chile where we stayed in the charming town of Puerto Varas.
We climbed the Osorno Volcano, took a boat ride on the Lago Todos, and witnessed the thundering waterfalls of Petrohue. It was also where we had our best llama encounter with llamas posting with the snowcapped volcano creating a beautiful scene.
We had evenings free to enjoy the fresh seafood of the area and to peruse the shops of Puerto Varas. Our hotel was downtown allowing us the opportunity to walk along the waterfront and take advantage of the restaurants and nightlife.
Stop 4 – Stop Patagonia
The final quarter of our trip took us to the pièce de résistance of Chile, Patagonia. We flew to the far south of the country and made our way to Torres del Paine National Park for three fun-filled adventurous days.
Our skilled driver spotted the elusive puma on day one. These animals are a rare sighting in Torres del Paine, but we saw a group of three pumas walking right beside the road. That moment set the tone for an unforgettable trip to Patagonia.
We viewed the impressive horns of Torres del Paine and the equally impressive Torres del Paine Massif. Not missing a thing, we visited the Southern Patagonia Ice Field and took a catamaran out to Grey Glacier for up close and personal views of its huge wall.
It was then onto a beautiful waterfall and the ancient Miloden Cave. There was the perfect blend of nature and history.
Staying just outside the park on a lake, we had an incredible view of the mountains during sunset and slept like babies in our private cabins. This truly was our bucket list adventure.
Bonding with the Group
Throughout our two-week adventure, we had opportunities for group meals at fine restaurants, cocktails with a view, and breakfasts out in nature. There were so many unique experiences that we shared together that will be etched into our memories for years to come.
Going on an Exodus travels tour takes you on an extraordinary adventure.
