Silversea Luxury 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.

Estancia Day in the Casablanca Valley (For In-Transit Guests)

Discover the wonderful traditions, flavours and scenery of the Casablanca Valley during this memorable, full-day excursion to Estancia El Cuadro.


Casablanca Valley and Estancia El Cuadro

Depart the pier for the scenic, approximately one-hour drive to the heart of the Casablanca Valley for a visit to Estancia El Cuadro, one of the most prestigious winegrowing locales of the world. Casablanca Valley vineyards, first planted in the early-1980s, have earned worldwide recognition in a relatively short space of time. The warm, temperate climate of the area is greatly influenced by the coastal sea breezes, which, in combination with a perfect terroir in a valley situated on the coastal plane, provide ideal conditions varieties of grape.


Chilean Rodeo Show and Folkloric Dance Demonstration

Upon arrival at the approximately 1,730-acre (about 700-hectare) Estancia El Cuadro, take in a lively presentation of the 'huasos' (Chilean cowboys) showing their skills on the ground, expertly manoeuvring the reins to guide their horses' movements followed by a demonstration of Chile's national dance, the 'Cueca'.


Wine Tasting and Chilean Barbecue

Next, proceed to the wine tasting room. This room is a trip back in time, a wine museum that boasts an original machinery collection used for the production of wine and liquor during the early-1900s. Learn the secrets of climate, soil and the geographical characteristics of this valley, and sample two varieties of wine. Following your wine tasting, enjoy a traditional Chilean barbecue. At the conclusion of your visit, re-board your coach and drive back to the ship.


Please note: This tour involves a moderate amount of walking for approximately 328 yards (about 300 metres), at times over uneven surfaces, with a few steps to negotiate to get on/off the coach and at the Estancia El Cuadro. This tour is not suitable for guests with limited mobility and guests who utilise a wheelchair. Lightweight, comfortable clothing with flat, closed-toe walking shoes and sun protection are recommended. Guests must be at least 21 years old to participate in tastings of alcoholic beverages. The order of the events might vary.

Santiago City (Tour & Airport Transfer)

This tour is designed for guests with flights leaving Santiago International Airport after 7:30p.m. on disembarkation day.


Chile's sprawling capital lies some 120 km (75 miles) from Valparaiso, and is one of South America's most sophisticated cities, and a thriving metropolis that is home to almost six million friendly santiaguinos, over a third of Chile's entire population.

Originally a colonial mint ('moneda' means coin), it was designed by Italian architect Joaquín Toesca, opening in 1805 while still under construction.

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.

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.

Overnight at the Sheraton San Cristobal Tower - Santiago, Chile.


Day 2 - SANTIAGO / SANTA CRUZ

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.


Overnight at the Santa Cruz Plaza Hotel - Santa Cruze, Chile

Please note, there are no 5-star properties in Santa Cruz. This property is considered a 4-star hotel and offers comfortable, though not lavish, accommodations.



Day 3 - SANTA CRUZ / SANTIAGO

Breakfast is served at your hotel this morning. Then it's time to meet your guide again for a visit to the boutique Neyen de Apalta winery, where so-called 'new world' wines are produced with the help of the unique soil and well-aged vines. 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.
