Detailed Itinerary
Day 1: Tour of City and markets. Hotel
Your BlueGreen Adventures representative will meet you at Santiago International Airport and transfer you to your accommodation in the city (see hotel options below).

In the afternoon, we will pick you up from your hotel to visit the most important historical sites of Santiago including the downtown area surrounding the Plaza de Armas and the Presidential Palace. We will also pass by the Mercado Central, one of Chile's largest fresh seafood markets and take a stroll through the many bustling stalls to see the tremendous variety available from Chile's bountiful sea.

We will visit some of the lesser know barrios of Santiago including, Republica and Concha y Toro. Initially constituting the outskirts of the city, the capital's constant growth transformed the area into a privileged neighborhood and home to Santiago's high society.

Continuing through the cobble stoned Lastarria neighborhood, we will walk through the Parque Forestal passing by the Bellas Artes Museum.

During the tour you will have the option to visit one Santiago's many famed museums such as: The Cousino Mansion, the former home to one of Chile's wealthiest 19th century families; or, the La Chascona Museum, the former home of Pablo Neruda, Chile's most famous poet and Nobel laureate; or, the Pre-Columbian Art Museum, containing one of the richest collection of Pre-Columbian culture of Latin America.

Famed for its Chardonnay and renowned for its Sauvignon Blanc, the valley's cool coastal breeze makes the climate ideal for growing white varietals and for comfortable cycling.

After a one hour drive from Santiago we will begin our guided tour on foot at the award-winning Veramonte Winery. Each wine is a reflection of the unique combination of soil, geography and climate, the result is wine of outstanding quality, such as the Primus Cabernet/Merlot/Carmenere blend and Ritual Pinot Noir. We will enjoy a tasting at Veramonte and begin our biking adventure, pedaling to Loma Larga Vineyards along beautiful back country roads.

Loma Larga Vineyards was named 'Winery of the Year 2011' by Wine and Spirits Magazine and continues to represent the best of the Casablanca Valley, setting the bar for quality cold-climate red wines. We will have a tour through the winery and a tasting followed by a picnic lunch before heading back to Santiago for the night.

At the end of the century, the barrio underwent a rebirth as old buildings were renovated, facades restored, and a diverse array of eclectic cafes, restaurants, bars, bookstores, design boutiques, art galleries, and cultural centers emerged throughout Lastarria's winding streets.
You will end your walking tour at Bocanáriz. With an ample selection of Chilean wines, Bocanáriz brings the increasingly popular 'chic wine bar' concept to a neighborhood considered more accessible by those who live outside the 'Barrio Alto'. You will enjoy a special flight of five distinctive Chilean wines paired with a variety of light tapas specially chosen to accompany each wine.
