10 days
Chile and Argentina
Prior to the arrival of the Spanish in the 16th century, Chile was ruled by the Incas in the north while the Mapuche people inhabited the central and southern region. Discover the lasting influences of indigenous and imperial reign in Santiago, where the city’s grand, European architecture backdrops a youthful eccentricity. In the Atacama desert, watch the sun set against Valle de la Luna’s unearthly landscape in a haze of purples, pinks, and golds. Cap off your stay in Buenos Aires, birthplace of the tango and Argentina’s eclectic metropolitan capital.
