Private Full-Day Andes Adventure: Portillo, Inca Lagoon, San Esteban Vineyard

After your hotel pick up, we set out on an adventure into the heart of the Andes Mountains.  Admire the scenic surroundings as we head towards the town of Los Andes. On the way we will stop at the Monument to the Battle of Chacabuco, which led to Chile’s Independence (Tours departing from Santiago only). Aside from stunning mountain scenery on this tour, you will also be able to see ruins of the Inca Empire where llama caravans stopped to rest after a long trip on the Inca Trail. You will also get to observe the ruins of an intricate route of the Transandino Railway winding between tunnels through steep cliffs.  Next stop, Viña San Esteban. This vineyard is located on the mountainous, eastern edge of the Aconcagua Valley, and is a pioneer in hillside-vineyard planting, taking full advantage of the unique combination of rocky soil and solar exposure which creates grapes rich in structure and character.  Here, we will have a tour of the vineyard followed by a tasting of their premium wines.  Afterwards, we continue deeper into the Aconcagua Valley into the middle of the Andes on a windy road known as “El Caracol” (The Snail), at an altitude of almost 8800 feet.  You will feel your heart race with excitement as your driver expertly maneuvers sharp bends and curves.  Just miles away from the border with Argentina, we reach our final destination: “Laguna del Inca” (Inca Lagoon). Engross yourself in tales of the lagoon’s legendary past, learning of the myths and history behind this sacred body of water.  On the lagoon’s edge is Portillo, the oldest ski resort in South America. During winter (June-September), the resort is open and here you can have lunch taking in the spectacular views of the glittering lagoon surrounded by the peaks of the Andes.  During summer (October-May), we will stop for a lunch at a rustic countryside restaurant where you will have the chance to taste delicious traditional Chilean dishes.
