The epicurean in you will love it! Travelling from Santiago de Chile to Buenos Aires via the Andes will give you a taste of the countless attractions offered by both countries. The wine-producing Colchagua and Uco Valleys will appeal to your bacchanalian side, while the oceanfront will provide you with a breathtaking view of the hillside seaport of Valparaiso. Portillo will leave you with an indelible memory from atop its 2,800-meter peak, while Puente del Inca, The Inca’s Bridge, will astonish you. The descent from the Andes to Mendoza will thrill you, the hot springs of Las Cuevas will relax you and the Argentinean wine region will seduce you. And lastly, cultural Buenos Aires will have you up dancing the tango.
