Our day begins with a stop at the Angelmo Handicraft Market, just a few minutes’ walk from the dock gates. There will be no better opportunity to pick up local crafts and authentic souvenirs home to remember our amazing journey.

After a quick shopping visit, our coach continues to Frutillar, where we will take a brief orientation walk and will have the opportunity to take a photograph across the waters of the Llanquihue Lake to one of the regions icons; the mighty Osorno Volcano.

Frutillar is one of Chile's most charming towns, not only because of its privileged lakeside location, but also because of its quaint, German-influenced architecture, and its friendly, laid-back atmosphere. The city was built by the sweat and tenacity of German immigrants in the mid-19th century and the striking Chilean scenery rivals even the Alps.

We will visit the Lake Theatre in Frutillar, the town’s most preeminent landmark. The original project to build Teatro del Lago was designed by the architects Gerardo Köster and Gustavo Greene, who supervised its structural work for 10 years. In 2008, the company Amercanda, led by architect Bernd Haller, took over the project in its construction phase, with the challenge of creating its external and internal design and terminations inspired in the traditional German architecture that predominates in the region. The building façade is covered in wood on Bakelite, in an aesthetic way and in the typical colors of the area. The roof is made of copper, representing Chile’s mining industry.

After this amazing visit our trip will take us to the Santa Ines Ranch in one of the most amazing landscapes in the south of Chile; a charming place due its extremely beautiful environment. The massive ranch is roughly 300 acres and snakes along the Maullín River’s shore flanked by the secluded local rainforest. Few such elements of nature and tranquility in the world can compare. Santa Inés Ranch is focused to cattle breeding, and its land is perfect for horse riding or trekking along the path in the native forest. The three large lagoons on the property are a fisherman’s paradise, and are also a splendid place for outdoor activities and relaxation.

Before enjoying our delicious lunch, a Pisco Sour welcome cocktail will be served along with crispy sopaipillas with Chilean pebre, a distinctive treat of the country’s palatable cuisine. We will have the chance to learn about the country’s distinctive agriculture industry, along with how the whole meal country bread is made with natural yeast. The main course is a typical barbecue of Patagonian lamb, grilled slowly for hours on stakes around the fire. There will of course be no shortage of phenomenal Chilean red wine and soft drinks to accompany the luncheon.

With a satisfied appetite, re-board the coach continue to the port of Puerto Montt to join the ship.

Suggested Attire/Walking Notes: Smart, comfortable casual wear is recommended. There will be moderate walking through Angelmo Handicraft Market and the town of Frutillar on paved surfaces, and some unpaved surfaces at Santa Ines Ranch.

Belle Epoque Buenos Aires

What was Buenos Aires like at the beginning of the 20th century, when the expression "riche comme un argentin" (as rich as an Argentine) was commonplace? The aim of this walk, in the company of an architect or urban historian, is to examine what ‘Argentine national identity’ exactly is and to trace its expression in the architectural and urban tissue of Buenos Aires stemming from the beginning of the 20th century, the city’s golden age of la Belle Epoque when it became the “Paris of South America."

Our walk will begin at the legislative end of Avenida de Mayo, in front of the National Congress, which will allow us to understand the internal affairs of Argentina before 1930, and to position this rich country, whose wealth was based on export of agricultural products, within a broader context of the international political scene at the beginning of the 20th century. We will move on to a stunning example of private prosperity, going hand in hand with the prosperity of the state: the impressive Palacio Barolo, which was the highest building in Latin America at the time it was constructed. The building will bring up the subject of presentation and auto-presentation of the Argentine citizens, a topic which will lead us to the ultimate public building designed to and for show: the famous Teatro Colón. Here we will try to trace the importance of various display possibilities, onstage as well as in an urban context, looking to public issues such as education, hygiene, and infrastructure and their visual presence within the urban tissue. We will delve into these themes with a look at the Palacio Pizzurno, Escuela Roca, or the Water Company Palace (Palacio de Aguas Corrientes).

We will then commute to the most elegant districts of Buenos Aires; Recoleta and Retiro, the destination of those who fled the southern parts of town to escape the yellow fever epidemic in 1871. As we stroll along the Avenida Alvear, through Plaza Pellegrini and Plaza San Martín, we will be able to admire the private palaces of the Argentine society representing the greatest affinity to the once so demanded 'Parisian style'. Lastly, our walk will lead us to an exquisite example of industrial architecture: the stunning Retiro Train Station. It will give us the opportunity to appreciate the steel construction and decoration. We will also examine the foreign influences in Argentine economy and infrastructure at the turn of the centuries and the incredible effect this means of transport had on the society’s mobility.

By the end of our walk, we will emerge with a strong grasp of the city’s history through its buildings, how the city was shaped during this era as well as a better understanding of the complex and multileveled Argentine identity as a nation.

Gourmet Buenos Aires Food Adventure
We’ll be exploring the neighbourhood of Recoleta, one of the most popular districts in Buenos Aires, and one of the best areas in which to have a gourmet Argentinian food experience. Our first restaurant is somewhere that perfectly represents Argentinian culture, and will give you a real taste of authentic empanadas, a typical local appetizer. Continuing our food adventure, we’ll hit up a local favourite for some traditional parrillas (grilled meat), along with an excellent glass of Argentinian Malbec. For dessert, we’ll show you our favourite ice cream place, where you’ll delight in homemade treats served alongside Argentina’s famous dulce de leche. To finish it all up, we’ll try some mate — make sure your guide gives you a proper lesson in it! By the time it’s all over, you’ll feel so much like a Porteño, you’ll want to move here! Hungry yet?
