Chilean Wine Country and the Atacama Desert

Lose yourself in the serenity of two of Chile‘s most beautiful and pristine regions—the Colchagua wine country and the Atacama desert—as you relax at high-design hotels that are surrounded by landscapes that must be seen to be believed.


What to Expect

Few destinations are as dramatic as Chile: here, salt flats meet snow-capped mountains, and vast deserts give way to sandy beaches and pink flamingo lagoons. Chile is a bucket list destination for most types of travelers, from outdoor enthusiasts and intrepid explorers to design aficionados and ultimate indulgers.

On this journey, you can escape the wintery weather of the northern hemisphere to discover the warm temperatures and beautiful vistas of Chile in mid-summer, while based at two of Indagare’s favorite, most indulgent, design-focused hotels: Viña Vik and Tierra Atacama. You will be hosted by the founder of Indagare, Melissa Biggs Bradley, for such adventures as horseback rides, wine tastings, star gazing, salt flat drives, hiking and more, in the company of your fellow Indagare members.
