Bike Tour around the Casablanca Valley

Day 1: Santiago – Casablanca Valley  (- / BL / D)

We will pick you up at your hotel in Santiago and will drive to the Rosario Valley, where your bike tour starts. We will bike through a secluded valley on a paved and undulating road, flanked by native vegetation and extensive vineyards. Here, you will be provided a hearty picnic lunch on the route. Our aim today is to reach Corralillo Winery, the cellar where you can find the famous Matetic Vineyards. Here we will take a wine tour, admire the impressive architecture of the building and the soft rolling hills all around us. After the wine tasting tour, we will continue biking to reach the secluded Magdalena Valley to then go back to your hotel in the Casablanca Valley.

Overnight at the Casablanca Spa & Wine Hotel – Standard Room

Day 2: Casablanca Valley (B / BL / D)

We will depart in our vehicle from your hotel and head to the crossroads that lead to the city of Casablanca; it will be a 20-minute drive, approx.

From there, we will start our biking toward Kingston Vineyards, an exclusive winery surrounded by a superb setting where we will taste some of their earthy wines and enjoy a picnic lunch that will fuel us to continue biking through the Casablanca Valley. Our route will then take us to Emiliana Organic Vineyards. Following a secondary and quiet road, we will reach these extensive vineyards where we will take their tour and taste some of their wines.

Day 3: Casablanca Valley – Santiago  (B / BL / -)

After a well-deserved rest, on the third day we will allow all the traces of calories from yesterday’s wine

tours to dry out. We will drive to Lo Vasquez, a pilgrimage center and shrine. From there we will take our bikes to cycle on a beautiful and flat road, flanked by old eucalyptus trees. The route will take us to the village of Las Dichas. Then the challenge will start from that point we will start crossing the Coastal Andes Mountain Range. The road becomes demanding and undulating, and in some portions, we will need all our energy to challenge the steep slopes on the way.

Our objective today is reaching the remote beach of Tunquén, one of the most beautiful and less visited in the Central Region of Chile.
