Pura Aventura launches into central Chile

PURA Aventura has chosen central #Chile as the location for its latest itinerary – a little-known region, much of which is off-the-map for tour operators. 

The 15 day trip travels from snow-capped volcanoes on the Pacific coast, to the Valdivian rainforests of Huilo Huilo and the stunning Zapallar beach. The relatively compact route within central Chile is ideal for the second time visitor, particularly those who are looking for a gentler adventure. 

The experience is priced from £3,460 per person based on two people sharing, including domestic flights, accommodation, guides, 4×4 vehicle rental and transfers.
