Silversea Expedition Cruises Nach Valparaiso

Valparaiso

Valparaíso's dramatic topography—45 cerros, or hills, overlooking the ocean—requires the use of winding pathways and wooden ascensores (funiculars) to get up many of the grades. The slopes are covered by candy-color houses—there are almost no apartments in the city—most of which have exteriors of corrugated metal peeled from shipping containers decades ago. Valparaíso has served as Santiago's port for centuries. Before the Panama Canal opened, Valparaíso was the busiest port in South America. Harsh realities—changing trade routes, industrial decline—have diminished its importance, but it remains Chile's principal port. View more

Most shops, banks, restaurants, bars, and other businesses cluster along the handful of streets called El Plan (the flat area) that are closest to the shoreline. Porteños (which means "the residents of the port") live in the surrounding hills in an undulating array of colorful abodes. At the top of any of the dozens of stairways, the paseos (promenades) have spectacular views; many are named after prominent Yugoslavian, Basque, and German immigrants. Neighborhoods are named for the hills they cover. With the jumble of power lines overhead and the hundreds of buses that slow down—but never completely stop—to pick up agile riders, it's hard to forget you're in a city. Still, walking is the best way to experience Valparaíso. Be careful where you step, though—locals aren't very conscientious about curbing their dogs.

A short drive follows to Ahu Tongariki, formerly the largest platform on the Island destroyed by a tidal wave in 1960, but since reconstructed. From there, continue to the spectacular Rano Raraku quarry, so symbolic of the island and the original "factory" of the moais. The gigantic statues cover the inner and outer slopes of the volcano; they can be admired in the different stages of production, from carving in the rock to upright position, and lying face down on their intended road to their platforms.



The tour continues along the north coast and passes through La Perousse Bay to stop at Ahu Te Pito Kura. This is the site of the largest moai ever transported and erected onto an ahu. The moai paro stood at 9.8 meters with an estimated weight of 82 tons. Its top knot alone weighs approximately 11 tons. It is also believed to be the last moai to be toppled, sometime in the 1840's.


The next stop is the beach of Anakena where according to native legend Hotu Matua first landed on Rapa Nui. At this site you will see the Ahu Nau Nau partially restored in 1978 by Rapa Nui Archeologist Sergio Rapu. Located in this same area is the Ahu Ature Huki. The moai standing on this ahu was the first moai to ever be re-erected onto an ahu. This was done by a group of islanders working with Thor Heyerdahl and the Norwegian expedition in 1956. A tasty boxed lunch is served in a shaded area at Anakena Beach or at Rano Raraku Volcano.

Day 3 - EASTER ISLAND

After a leisurely breakfast meet your guide and head along the southeast coast at Ahu Hanga Te'e in the sector of Vaihu. From Vaihu continue on to the Ahu Akahanga also known as the "platform of the king". According to legends this is the site where the bones of the first king of Easter Island (Hotu Matua) are buried. A short drive follows to Ahu Tongariki, formerly the largest platform on the Island destroyed by a tidal wave in 1960, but since reconstructed. From there, continue to the spectacular Rano Raraku quarry, so symbolic of the island and the original "factory" of the moais. The gigantic statues cover the inner and outer slopes of the volcano; they can be admired in the different stages of production, from carving in the rock to upright position, and lying face down on their intended road to their platforms.


The tour continues along the north coast and passes through La Perousse Bay to stop at Ahu Te Pito Kura. This is the site of the largest moai ever transported and erected onto an ahu. The moai paro stood at 9.8 meters with an estimated weight of 82 tons. Its top knot alone weighs approximately 11 tons. It is also believed to be the last moai to be toppled, sometime in the 1840's.


The next stop is the beach of Anakena where according to native legend Hotu Matua first landed on Rapa Nui. At this site you will see the Ahu Nau Nau partially restored in 1978 by Rapa Nui Archeologist Sergio Rapu. Located in this same area is the Ahu Ature Huki. The moai standing on this ahu was the first moai to ever be re-erected onto an ahu. This was done by a group of islanders working with Thor Heyerdahl and the Norwegian expedition in 1956. A tasty boxed lunch is served in a shaded area at Anakena Beach or at Rano Raraku Volcano.

From Anakena, take the inland road through Vaitea back to town, arriving back at the hotel in the early evening.

Following breakfast this morning, meet your guide for the 2.5h drive to the Colchagua Valley. The Andes mountains provide a dramatic backdrop to the morning. The valley itself is prized for formidable red wines and is home to over 30 wineries. Inhabited for over 10,000 years, this valley's airidity has preserved hundreds of sites making this area an archaeological gold mine of sand-preserved mummies, fossilized dinosaur footprints, and a nice cool weather to grow succulent grape vines.


Originally from Bordeaux, a region known as the birthplace of the world's great red wines, the Malbec variety is known for its intense cherry-red color, sweet, friendly tannins, and pronounced notes of fruits and spices. Although it is most often associated with Argentina, it is also very successfully grown Chile.Viña Viu Manent, located in the heart of the Colchagua Valley, was a pioneer in producing Malbec in Chile when it began 20 years ago. In 1993 this family-owned and operated winery made Chile's first 100% Malbec wine from grapes grown on vines that were nearly a century old.


Lunch is served this afternoon at a local restaurant.


This afternoon, spend some time at the Colchagua Museum. This private institution includes a collection of nearly 7,000 items mainly related to the disciplines of Paleontology, Archeology, History of Chile and much more. Few visitors can imagine that behind its modest facade, typical of the Chilean colonial time, one can find an exhibit of the one of the most dramatic rescues of modern times an almost exact replica of the underground refuge of "San Jose" mine and the "Fenix" capsule that rescued the 33 trapped miners.


At the end of your visit, check-in to your hotel. Take some time to relax and freshen-up before dinner is served at the hotel.

Thought extinct for more than a century in its native Bordeaux, the Colchagua valley is now the best place in the world to sample wines made from the recently rediscovered Carménère grape.


The Carmenère and Cabernet Sauvignon vines that were planted in 1890 now produce excellent fruit due to their deep roots and natural balance. The tour of the winery will allow you to appreciate their hundred-year-old grapevines dating back to late nineteenth century, as well as both its modern vinification techniques and the historical cellar ending with a wine tasting.
