valparaisoOn the first day of Christmas Cascada planned for me...
A day exploring Valparaíso

Setting off from Chile’s vibrant capital Santiago, you’ll travel the short distance to the quirky port of Valparaíso on the Pacific coast. The bohemian city earned its UNESCO World Heritage Site stripes with its distinctive multi-coloured houses that cling like limpets to its forty-two hills. The day tour also takes in neighbouring upmarket seaside town Viña del Mar.

2 days sailing the Torres del Paine fjords

Choose the Patagonia Torres Del Paine 2 Day Ecocamp Extension or the Patagonia Torres Del Paine 2 Day Premium Ecocamp Extension to wind your way through Patagonia’s intricate fjords. You’ll see the stunning Balmaceda glacier, the outlandish rock formations of the Torres del Paine Massif and get down to walk around the tumbling crystalline Serrano waterfall.

 

kayaking in patagoniaOn the third day of Christmas Cascada planned for me...
3 days sea kayaking Patagonia

Leaving the Torres del Paine National Park in Chilean Patagonia needn’t just be a means to an end. Surprise your travel companion with a kayaking extension and you’ll leave the park by paddling down the Serrano River, taking in sights only accessible via the waterways, before taking a catamaran ride on the final leg of the journey to Puerto Natales.

 

guanaco in torres del paineOn the fourth day of Christmas Cascada planned for me...
4 days on a Patagonia safari

Cascada’s unique wildlife safari is the perfect gift for the animal lover in your life. Enjoy seeking out Patagonia’s unique flora and fauna in Torres del Paine National Park along with expert guides who’ll ensure you won’t miss a thing. Along with condors, huemuls, guanacos and ñandus, lucky guests on this tour may even see a wild puma (it does happen!).

 

moai easter islandOn the fifth day of Christmas Cascada planned for me...
5 days on a Pacific island

Cascada offers tours to mystical Easter Island or castaway Robinson Crusoe Island, both marooned far off Chile’s coast in the Pacific Ocean. On Easter Island you’ll visit an extinct volcano and ride horseback along the rugged coast as well as taking in the magnificent Moai statues, while on Robinson Crusoe Island you’ll sail, scuba dive and ride horses through the native forest.

 

cycling in torres del paineOn the sixth day of Christmas Cascada planned for me...
6 days of adventure activities

If you’re worried you’ll choose the wrong activity for your special someone, why not pick Cascada’s limited edition multi-activity Patagonia adventure so they can try it all? Participants will experience everything Torres del Paine National Park has to offer from horse riding to kayaking, and cycling to hiking.

 

Torres del PaineOn the seventh day of Christmas Cascada planned for me...
7 days on the W Trek

The W Trek in Chile’s Torres del Paine National Park is one of the world’s most iconic hiking trails making it ideal for anyone with an interest in hiking at the ends of the earth. The spectacular sights include the iconic trek to the base of the famous granite Towers, hikes to the French Valley and Grey Glacier and a bike ride to Laguna Azul.

 

perito moreno glacierOn the eighth day of Christmas Cascada planned for me...
8 days hiking in Chilean and Argentine Patagonia

Perhaps you’re wondering whether your giftee would rather travel to Chilean or Argentine Patagonia? Well they can have it all with the Patagonia United tour that brings together the highlights of both. Explore the Torres del Paine National Park and sail to the Grey Glacier in Chile before you cross the border to see Argentina’s Perito Moreno Glacier and Los Glaciares National Park.

 

Lake Pehoe torres del paineOn the ninth day of Christmas Cascada planned for me...
9 days trekking the Torres del Paine Circuit

If you’re booking a tour for a hardcore trekker, nothing but the full Torres del Paine Circuit hike will do. This trek covers all of the same ground as the popular W Trek but also loops around the back of the National Park to explore some lesser-known trails and see the eccentric geological formations from another point of view.

 

chilean andesOn the tenth day of Christmas Cascada planned for me...
10 days in the Altiplano and the Andes

For a longer trip, why not combine two or more of Cascada’s ready-made tours. The five day Altiplano Wildlife explorer combines pre-Colombian cultural highlights with an introduction to the flora and fauna of the region and a dip in the natural hot springs. Since you’ll already be acclimatised to altitude, follow this up with a five day trek in the Chilean Andes!

 

chilean andesOn the eleventh day of Christmas Cascada planned for me...
11 days of ice and deserts

For many people Christmas just isn’t Christmas if you don’t have to put on a woolly hat, scarf and gloves just to venture outside, whilst some would prefer to escape the chills and head somewhere a little warmer. By combining a six day tour of Argentina’s Los Glaciares National Park with a five day tour of the Atacama Desert in Chile, you’ll get the best of both.

 

suitcaseOn the twelfth day of Christmas Cascada planned for me...
