Welcome to Chile! Upon arrival in Santiago airport, you will catch your flight to Calama. Here, a shared transfer will be waiting for you to take you to your hotel in San Pedro de Atacama.
From wide, flat saltpans, to jagged mountains and an overly-dry atmosphere, there are few matches to Atacama's beauty in South America. Atacama's alien landscape continues for miles and miles in every direction. Traveling here very much feels like removing oneself from society, from civilization, from everything. Its expansiveness allows for tons of activities from hiking to off roading, so despite the huge emptiness of the high plateau, you'll never run out of things to do.
Casa Atacama welcomes you to enjoy the mystical landscapes, stunningly diverse scenery and exhilarating adventures of the world’s driest desert. Their professional tour guides plan excursions for all interests and skill levels, from trekking and biking to archaeological outings and cultural tours.
After breakfast, a shared transfer will drive you to Calama airport where you will catch you domestic flight to Santiago.
Arriving at Santiago airport a private transfer will be waiting for you to drive you to your hotel in Lastarria neighborhood.
In the afternoon your private guide will pick you at your hotel to take you on a Half Day Santiago City Tour. You will be shown the highlights of Chile’s capital city, such as the historical city center, the San Cristobal Hill and the Bellavista neighborhood.
A city, which for many years has played second fiddle to Buenos Aires and Rio, Santiago is used to being the underdog metropolis in South America. However, since it's 200-year anniversary, public work projects have aimed to rejuvenate a once stale region, into a desirable destination in itself. The result is that now, more than ever, Santiago is turning into a city worth visiting. New and trendy restaurants, modern hotels, excited locals and bustling shops combine for the perfect gateway to Chile.
After breakfast, you will be collected from your hotel and taken to the airport in Santiago where you will catch your flight to Easter Island. Here you will be met by a shared transfer from Hare Noi who will take you to your hotel on the island. You will arrive in time to have lunch and enjoy an afternoon activity with the Hare Noi guides.
Easter Island, also known by the name "Rapa Nui" in the local language, is located in the southeastern Pacific Ocean. This small island is one of the most isolated places on Earth and most famous for its fascinating 887 monumental statues, called moai. The huge statues are scattered throughout the 15 mile long island, literally creating an open air museum. In addition to exploring the statues in disbelief, the island also offers spectacular beaches for diving, snorkeling and surfing, to keep you busy and active throughout your unforgettable stay.
You will have 2 full days to enjoy Hare Noi and the wonderful all-inclusive shared excursions they offer. Recognized as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, Easter Island’s fascinating archeology and culture have sparked the curiosity of travelers from all over the world. With a secluded location 3,500 kilometers from the coast of South America and over 2,000 miles from the nearest inhabited island, Easter Island is one of the most remote places on Earth.
The native Rapa Nui inhabitants have developed a rich cultural history here over the last 1,000 years. The ancient islanders are best known for their mysterious moai – monolithic human figures carved from stone – which can be seen on platforms around the island’s perimeter.
Hare Noi offers numerous excursions to help visitors make the most of their time on this fascinating volcanic island.
According to your flight schedule, a regular transfer will drive you to Mataveri airport in Easter Island to catch your flight back to Santiago. Upon arrival, a private transfer will be waiting for you to drive you to The Magnolia Hotel to enjoy your last night in Chile.
