Silversea Luxury Cruises À VALPARAISO

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.

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.

The first stop will be in the administrative and governmental heart of the city where the Palacio de La Moneda Government Palace sits. Originally a colonial mint ('moneda' means coin), it was designed by Italian architect Joaquín Toesca, opening in 1805 while still under construction.

3NT POST-CRUISE: CHILEAN WINE ROUTE

Enjoy a short introduction to the famed Chilean Wine Route. The Colchagua Valley lies between Chile's capital and the Pacific Coast, with an ideal climate for the robust reds - Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec, etc. - that have caused such a stir in the wine world. Visit two wineries and the Colchagua Museum and experience how the near perfect environmental conditions allow the grapes to mature slowly and yield wines bursting with flavour.


Please note: Guests participating in this program should schedule their flights from Santiago Airport.


Day 1 - SANTIAGO

Disembark your Silversea ship and you are met and transferred to your hotel. The balance of the day is at your leisure.


Dinner this evening is served at the hotel.


Overnight at the Santiago Hotel - 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 Cruz, 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.


Lunch today is served picnic-style.


Return to Santiago this afternoon and enjoy the balance of the day at your leisure. Dinner tonight is on your own account.

Explore remarkably preserved palaces, baths, temples, storage rooms, and some 150 houses

Whilst exploring this Incan retreat perched between Huayna Picchu (Young Peak) and Machu Picchu (Old Peak), it is easy to be moved by the wonder of this magnificent ancient wonder. Perched approximately 2,000 feet (about 610 metres) above the rumbling Urubamba River, it contains misty palaces, baths, temples, storage rooms, and some 150 houses, all in a remarkable state of preservation. Carved from the granite of the mountain top, many of the building blocks weigh 50 tons (about 45 metric tons) or more, yet are so precisely sculpted and fitted that the mortar-less joints won't permit the insertion of even a thin knife-blade.

Guided tour of Ahu Tahai, a restored boat-house, hen's house and boat ramp

Your guided tour of this site offers a unique opportunity to learn about the burial rituals, and relationship between the Rapa Nui elders and sacredness. In addition, see a restored hare paenga (boat-house), hare moa (hen's-house) and boat-ramp; a recreation of everything that marked the existence of the Rapa Nui culture, its beliefs and resources.


Local fruit juice and cake, and a Takona body-painting session accompanied by traditional songs

As a special treat, you are invited to enjoy a glass of natural fruit juice and poe (traditional cake) at this remarkable location whilst enjoying a Takona body-painting, which has been specially staged for the group. During traditional ceremonies, Rapa Nui people paint their faces and bodies, thus preserving the technique of mixing natural pigments and describing the meaning of the painting. Your body-painting session is accompanied by musicians singing traditional songs.


Visits to a picturesque cemetery, Catholic Church to view woodcarvings, and a hotel transfer

Next, re-board your coach and head for a visit to a picturesque cemetery, then stop for a look at interesting woodcarvings in the Catholic Church. Afterward, drive through the village en route to the hotel.


Dinner is at the hotel.

3NT POST-CRIUSE: CHILEAN WINE ROUTE

Enjoy a short introduction to the famed Chilean Wine Route. The Colchagua Valley lies between Chile's capital and the Pacific Coast, with an ideal climate for the robust reds - Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec, etc. - that have caused such a stir in the wine world. Visit two wineries and the Colchagua Museum and experience how the near perfect environmental conditions allow the grapes to mature slowly and yield wines bursting with flavour.


Please note: Guests participating in this program should schedule their flights from Santiago Airport.


Day 1 - VALPARAISO/ SANTIAGO

Disembark your Silversea ship and you are met and transferred to your hotel. The balance of the day is at your leisure.


Dinner this evening is served at the hotel.


Overnight at the Santiago Hotel - 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 aridity 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 Cruz, 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.


Lunch today is served picnic-style.


Return to Santiago this afternoon and enjoy the balance of the day at your leisure. Dinner tonight is on your own account.
