Valparaíso (Chile)

Valparaíso, is one of the most beautiful ports in the world, built on 45 hills around the harbor and the bay, was declared a World Cultural Heritage by UNESCO in 2003.


This city offers many attractions: the National Congress, a modern building legacy of Pinochet in the late 80's, Victoria Square surrounded by the cathedral and the city library, Sotomayor Square with the monument of the national hero of the War of the Pacific, Arturo Prat..

But Valparaiso is also the hills, with its beautiful scenic spots from the viewpoints of May 21 or from the "rides" Atkinson, Gervasoni and Yugoslavian, surrounded by beautiful homes and tangled streets. It is also possible to take one or more cable cars to access to these viewpoints, such as "Artillery", "El Peral" or "Conception".

Patagonia in all seasons menu. For example, according to the climate, from Bariloche, in Patagonia Argentina, it is possible to go to Puerto Montt, in Chile, crossing successively three lakes by boat, as did the Jesuits and the first German settlers. I offer a tour that leads to the Pacific Ocean. It is quite long, but the beauty of the sites - forests, volcanoes and crystalline lakes - is such that it is worth to be carried. The Argentine side, cross the west arm of Nahuel Huapi and Lake Puerto Alegre and, the chilen side, Lake Todos los Santos. Moving from one lake to another by bus. This tour is feasible in all seasons, but in winter, it takes two days to reach Puerto Montt, stopping for one night at Peulla. We returned to Bariloche by air or by the same way, after a night in Puerto Montt. Borispatagonia is also responsible for visas to go to Chile and to book hotels. In Patagonia, winter and summer are tourist seasons. In summer, besides explore the surrounding, many activities are available: climbing, torrent fishing, sailing, horseback riding, hiking, rides, visits to Aciendas... In winter, the main activity is, of course, skiing, especially in July and August on the side of the Andes, but not only: snowshoe hikes, thematic tours, many walks to admire the beauty of Patagonia Argentina and Chile in this season, due a unique light, the warmth of the people of Patagonia... Just to talk about, I get goose bumps!
