Penguin Rocks and Coastal Path at Cachagua (Zapallar)

A unique experience: on the penguin rock off the beach of Cachagua you can observe the cute little animals in their natural environment.

A wonderfully designed, picturesque path leads along the coast past several beautiful bays, over rocks surrounded by the sea and across the little bridge high above the waves. A perfect end to your excursion is a meal at Zapallar's beach restaurant.

Culture and Roaring Waves

Why not spend a morning at Pablo Neruda’s house on the coast of Isla Negra! Then enjoy the afternoon on the long beach of Pichilemu and the sea with its world-famous surfing waves around Punta de Lobos.

Cerro de La Campana

You don’t necessarily have to go all the way up to the summit (1,828 m), the highest elevation between the Andes and the Pacific. A variety of paths give access to the national park with its interesting vegetation and allow wonderful views of the Andes and the protected forests of the endemic Chilean palm.

Santiago - Costanera Center

The 300-metre-high Gran Torre Santiago is one of the tallest buildings in South America. There is a viewing platform on the top floor. You quickly forget the hustle and bustle in the shopping arcades and enjoy the wide view over the city of millions all the way to the Andes.

Routa 60 – in Serpentines to the Argentinian Border

Along the valley of the Rio Juncal, the road winds its way from the nearby town of Los Andes to the pass of Portillo at 2860 metres. Surrounded by the 6000 m tall peaks the mountain lake glitters and invites you to linger. In the winter months from June to September this is one of Chile’s largest ski resorts.
