Seeing the Chilean Countryside from Valparaiso

By Viator, September 2015

5 16 Reviews | Add your review

The city streets of Valparaiso offer plenty to do and explore on their own, but getting out of the cerros and into the picturesque Chilean countryside is part of what makes this destination worth a trip. Whether it’s exploring by boat, horse, foot or by car, there are ways to get a taste of local life beyond the urban landscape. 

Horseback riding adventures ranging for a couple of hours to as long as a week offer travelers the unique opportunity to get right up close to some of the country’s most breathtaking scenery. Travelers can gallop into the hillside atop a well-trained horse, navigate through breathtaking trails and tuck into cozy bunks at an idyllic ranch at the end of a long day on the range.

Private day tours to the Chilean wine country are another great way to see the rural side of the nation. Travelers can venture out into the rolling hills of the Casablanca Valley and sip crisp glasses of Sauvignon Blanc and oakey Chardonnay. Guided wine tours offer the perfect balance of information and atmosphere, since visitors get to sample some of Chile’s best reds and whites with Mother Nature’s beautiful backdrop.

While it may not be the typical countryside, a visit to Isla Negra, Algarrobo, Tunquen and Quintay is another way for travelers to escape from the city and explore less worn paths. Visitors can check out yacht clubs, photograph penguins, wander the sandy beaches of Caleta San Pedro and even stop by a local fishery to check out colorful boats and a lively local marketplace before returning to Valparaiso.
