Rough itinerary for Chile in July/August- feedback requested

Jump to last reply

We're in the early stages of planning a 2 week trip to Chile next summer and I'd love your opinions on our itinerary. The 2 main goals are (summer for us) skiing and wine country. We are active near 40 adults who enjoy food, wine, cities, and getting outside. Our only previous experiences in S America include Argentina and Peru.

Have at it!

2 nights Santiago
3 nights Valle Nevado
3 nights Atacama Desert
4 nights wine country (?? Not sure where yet but I'm thinking within a reasonable drive of the Santiago airport so we can make a late night flight back to the US on the last day and also thinking of perhaps splitting our time between 2 areas/hotels)

Transportation wise I think the only intra country flight will be to Atacama; otherwise we should be able to arrange a transfer to the ski resort from Santiago and perhaps a rental car when we return from the desert for the wine country days? I'm not sure if I have the stops in the right order though...

Thanks in advance!
