Located only 8 kms. away from Valparaiso, Viña del Mar is considered the top seaside resort in Chile, thanks to its privileged location, its vibrant nightlife and modern architecture.
The tour starts with pick up from hotels in Valparaiso at 02:00 PM approx. The first stop will be Viña del Mar (litt. "Vineyard of the Sea"): the city is known as the "Garden City" (Ciudad Jardin) for its well-kept gardens and flowers everywhere. We will visit the main streets of the city, including Av. Perú, Av. San Martín, Viana, Álvarez, Av. Marina, Libertad with the old Casino, Plaza de Armas and Quinta Vergara. Here we will stop to admire the beautiful gardens and to visit the famous theater where every year the famous " Festival Internacional de la Canción" is held.
Then we´ll visit the Garden Clock, one of the most famous highlights of the city, a clock face created with seasonal flowers.
We'll continue to the city of Reñaca, from where we'll get a panoramic view of its beaches and the Sea Lions Viewpoint. The next stop will be the Oceanic Rock, a place which has been declared as a Natural Sanctuary for the diversity of its flora and fauna. The journey continues to the coastal town of Concón: after crossing the bridge over the Aconcagua river we'll get to "The Island" Ecological Park, from where we'll enjoy a breathtaking view of the Delta river and the different bird species that live in the area.
The tour ends back to your hotel in Valparaiso; alternatively you can be dropped off at Viña del Mar to enjoy a fabulous dinner in one of the beachfront restaurants (dinner & transportation back to the hotel is at own expenses).
