Experience

Highlights
  • Enjoy an 8-hour private tour with free hotel pick-up
  • Interact with alpacas and learn about wool production
  • Stroll along a stone path following the coastline
Full description
After your hotel pick up, venture towards the Pacific Coast. You will visit the largest privately-owned alpaca farm in the world where you can interact with these beautiful animals up close. See the entire alpaca wool production process and enjoy a broad selection of exclusive creations and handmade art crafts.

Afterwards, you will continue up the coastline on the Ruta del Pacifico to the town of Cachagua, a stone's throw from Penguin Island. Try to catch a glimpse of penguins by the naked eye or using binoculars. Walk along a beautifully carved pathway to a small cove with gorgeous views of the ocean. Afterward, stop for lunch in the quiet seaside resort town of Zapallar.

Please note that penguin sightings from the short are most common during the summer months of December to February. Between March and November, the penguins tend to move inland to their burrows. Therefore, please be aware that during these months it may not be possible to see the penguins from the shore. There is the option of taking a one -hour private boat ride around the island for closer viewing of the penguins. This is an additional $60.000 Chilean Pesos per group (up to 7 people) and highly recommended anytime during the year, weather permitting.

I would like to thank Mr. Sean our multilingual tour guide for the Santiago : Pacific Treasures Private tour. I was able to visit all the locations as listed in the tour itinerary with ease as Mr Sean planned and coordinated the movement between places really well. He was very knowledgeable about Chile’s culture and history which gave us interesting insights as he drove through a very scenic and enjoyable routes. The alpaca farm was the highlight of the tour as we got a chance to interact with a pioneering entrepreneur in alpaca wool production process. If we had more time at Santiago we would have engaged Mr. Sean for other day trips. Our comfort was his utmost priority throughout the trip. I highly recommend his private tour services around Santiago and Chile to all.
