Day 1: Santiago Walking tour
After landing at Santiago airport and clearing customs, you’ll be met by a Cascada representative and driven to your hotel in a private hotel transfer. After checking in, you’ll have time to relax before being picked up for a City Walking Tour.
We’ll first drive downtown to the city center, where so many of Santiago’s famous sights are found, such as the central fish market and Plaza de Armas (Santiago’s main square and the starting point from which all distances in the country are measured). Our tour takes us down the always-awake pedestrian walkway Paseo Ahumada (where people, shops, and crowds will be out and about in abundance!) to the center’s main street, ‘Alameda’. We’ll visit Chile’s presidential palace La Moneda - still such a symbol of Chile’s turbulent political history - and climb Cerro Santa Lucía, where Santiago was founded in 1541 by Pedro Valdivia. By this point, we’ll be wanting a rest; which we’ll find alongside a coffee and stroll through bohemian Lastarria neighborhood. This lovely nook lined with cafés, restaurants, small theaters, bookstores and boutique stops is a peaceful way to end the day.

Day 2 – 8 Ski Days.
We get up early to be taken to Santiago’s emblematic Estación Central, where you’ll take the train to your skiing adventure at Termas de Chillán Ski & Resort. At arrival in Chillán, a transfer will pick you up and drive you to the Ski Resort. Once there, we’ll grab our ski gear, get introduced to the center, and check the map showing the ski runs. Now we’re ready to hit the slopes and start our 7-day skiing adventure!
Apart from the skiing parks, you will have free access to the thermal pool (37°C), sauna, gym, yoga classes and daily entertaining activities.
The resort also offers a wide range of activities to be paid aside, such as:

*You can also choose the Ski Learning Program. This program is priced differently - our sales staff will be happy to give you a quote.
Day 9: Leave Termas de Chillán Ski & Resort
You will be dropped at the train station in order to begin your return trip to Santiago.
Once in Santiago we will take you to the airport to catch your flight home or continue your journey through Chile or South America. (If you would like us to arrange another night in Santiago to catch a flight the following day, please let us know.)
