ATACAMA DESERT & MAULE VALLEY WINE
Your adventure begins in the Atacama Desert—the world’s most arid non-polar region and a trove of otherworldly rock formations and lost desert cultures. Take a mountain bike along ancient sandy pathways and see the incredible Valley of Mars, Rainbow Valley, and the Cordillera de la Sal.
Walk the lunar drama of aptly-named Moon Valley before watching the sunset draw long shadows across the serrated peaks and caves of this astonishing landscape.
Saddle up for a horseback tour of the fertile vine-striped hills of the Maule Valley. Amid the rows of Cabernet Sauvignon, Pinot Noir, and Chardonnay, you’ll learn the medieval roots of this storied wine region while following the wine trail to family-owned vineyards. Enjoy exclusive tastings of their finest vintages before retiring for the night to a luxuriously appointed 19th-century hacienda.
HELI-SKIING & EASTER ISLAND
From the desert to the snow, with a heli-skiing adventure launching you into the teeth of the Andes. Led by your world-class Pelorus guide, you’ll experience some of Chile’s finest off-piste possibilities, gliding down epic, pristine runs surrounded by incredible mountain vistas.
Next, your chopper takes you down to sea level at Pichilemu with its world-class surfing. Launch into the Pacific Ocean swell by long or shortboard, or harness its warm breezes while kiteboarding or windsurfing. After you’ve showered off the salt, explore Pichilemu’s captivating ensemble of colonial buildings, jungle, and ocean views. As evening falls, to the sound of the whitewash sizzling through the sand, sit down to a fresh seafood feast on a candlelit beach.
Across the ocean to one of the world’s most intriguing destinations—and secret surf spots—Rapa Nui (Easter Island). Explore the island’s distinctive culture and moai statues before seeing its thriving offshore dive sights or catching some distinctly uncrowded surf.
