Immerse yourself in Chilean culture while exploring Santiago, experiencing a cooking class, and enjoying a graffiti workshop. In Valparaiso, you’ll learn about winemaking. Then, it’s time to head to stunning Patagonia to continue your family adventure.
Located in the southern tip of South America in present-day Chile and Argentina, Patagonia’s unrivaled natural beauty and unique terrain beckon travelers to explore.
No trip to Chile would be complete without a trip to Patagonia and Tierra del Fuego for some penguin watching and active adventure. Your kids will delight in observing these cuddly, waddling creatures as they hang out on the beach, socialize, or head into the surf for a swim.
While you can scope out penguins throughout Chilean Patagonia, Tierra del Fuego’s King Penguin Park boasts the only colony of king penguins in South America. We’ll head out to Isla Magdalena an uninhabited island with a colony of Magellanic penguins that’s 120,000 strong. Not only will you get your fill of happy feet, but the boat trip includes chances to see sea lions, dolphins, and even whales.
Of course, no trip to Patagonia would be complete without a visit to the Torres del Paine National Park, a land of massive glaciers, exotic wildlife, turquoise lakes, lush forests, and snow-clad granite peaks. One of the most pristine wilderness settings in the world, you’ll come face-to-face with sublime landscapes that will make you feel completely insignificant.
