Join us and find some of the richest and most productive agriculture in the world plus a well preserved variety of culture, cuisine and art. When it’s snowing in the US Chile is exporting fruits, vegetables, wine and specialty crops. The well watered south of Chile offers excellent pasture for livestock and top growing conditions for flowers, ornamental plants and woodlands. Seafood is abundant along the coast and sheep, llamas and alpacas are happy in the Andes, and salmon are fattening in their coastal pens.
Included are visits to farms and ranches, processing and packing plants, forest plantations, research stations and agriculture suppliers. We will visit popular touristic sites around Chile’s most famous coastal resort, Viña del Mar, and in the southern lake district. We also savor the world class wines of the Casa Blanca valley, join in the fun at a folk music and dancing show and visit Chile’s largest produce market in Santiago. The lake district panorama includes smoking volcanos, sparkling lakes surrounded by the snow capped Andes and Chiloe Island known for handcrafts quality and unique architecture.
