Cascada’s NEW Patagonia Hiking & Chile Ski Special has been designed to offer the dual experience of skiing in the heart of the Andes Mountains and hiking through the best of Patagonia’s wildlife. This exclusive special, with 4* accommodation in Santiago de Chile and EcoCamp Suite Domes in Torres del Paine National Park, will run for a very limited time only (September 10th - 30th 2012) making the most of the end of the ski season in Chile and the start of the summer season in Patagonia.
The program allows travellers to explore some of Chile’s most spectacular scenery in low season, with lower numbers of skiers on the mountain pistes and fewer hikers in Patagonia. In just 6 days visitors discover Chile's cosmopolitan capital Santiago, enjoy scenic views in the heart of the Andes Mountains while skiing in world class ski resort valle Nevado and explore the highlights of Chilean Patagonia while staying at the unique Ecocamp Patagonia in Torres del Paine.
When holidaymakers arrive in Santiago de Chile they’re taken to their elegant hotel and then on a guided city tour through the highlights of Chile’s capital city. On their second day they’re treated to a panoramic journey through the snow-capped Andes Mountains up to famous ski resort Valle Nevado where they have a whole day to ski or snowboard and enjoy lunch and scenic views. On the third day they fly down to Punta Arenas at the tip of the South American continent and their EcoCamp Patagonia Wildlife Safari experience begins! This unique Safari covers Torres del Paine’s highlights, giving EcoCamp Patagonia guests the chance to explore the best of the park’s flora & fauna, mountain scenery and hiking trails with an expert guide, before enjoying sociable suppers and starlit skies from inside EcoCamp’s sustainable geodesic domes. The trip ends back at Punta Arenas airport, or in El Calafate across the Argentinean border, on day 6 where you can begin an extension program.
Chile skiing, Santiago de Chile exploration and Patagonian hiking & wildlife in under a week! Singles are welcome and groups of friends and families can take advantage of our EcoCamp Suite Dome Lofts sleeping up to 4 people! Book now for your chance to experience this amazing special in September 2012.
