Jen and her family had a great trip to Chile, Argentina and Uruguay over Christmas and New Year 2015. The highlights included the Torres del Paine National Park, Tierra del Fuego and a few days of relaxation on the beaches of Uruguay.
Torres del Paine
Kendra and Ian had a fantastic trip to Chile in December 2015. The highlights included the Torres del Paine National Park and the Lake District.
Jennifer and her daughter had a fantastic trip to Southern Chile and Argentina in December 2015. The highlights included spending Christmas in the Torres del Paine National Park and New Year in South America's southernmost city, Ushuaia.
The diversity of Chile and the range of activities to do there; make it a great choice for family holidays. With breath-taking nature, awe-inspiring mountain ranges and pretty coastlines, there is more than enough to keep every member of the family happy! Chile’s summer coincides with European and North American Christmas holidays, making it a great destination for the Christmas break.
Without a doubt Chile has some of the best walking available in South America, mainly due to the fact that the Andes mountain range runs right along its eastern border. From the very South to the very North of the country, there is walking to satisfy all levels and abilities.
Far and away our pick of the hotels in Puerto Natales…if not this entire region of Chile! Designed in a contemporary and simplistic manner, the hotel has cleverly combined natural wood with industrial, blackened iron, beams that create a three dimensional interior framework. The rooms, by contrast, offer simple comfort and great views.
The Dreams heralds a new era of high end, luxury accommodation in Punta Arenas. Designed to cater for the large cruise ships of the Pacific and the smaller cruises around the Cape Horn, they have really thought of everything; stunning views, outstanding rooms, facilities and a casino.
Sitting on the southern end of the Lago Grey and looking out to the Grey Glacier, the Hotel Grey is, arguably, the second/third best property in the Park and is great for those that would like to do a glacier trip as well as seeing the Cuernos del Paine.
With the new influx of high end properties in the area (see the Awasi, the Tierra and the Explora Hotels), the Rio Serrano has definitely slipped down the ranks as far as luxury is concerned but we still think it is a good option for those that are wanting some luxury but can't afford the higher price tags of the others.
