    From north to south, the Chilean territory presents an infinite variety of landscapes between the Andes Mountains and the Pacific Ocean. And, of course, in its more than 4,000 kilometers you can find deserts, lakes, beaches, forests, and glaciers. The center of the country, however, is known for two things: Santiago, its capital, and for being the world-renowned wine production sector, with a beautiful wine route that attracts many tourists every year.

    The main wine valleys are Aconcagua, Maipo, Maule, and Colchagua, the latter being the most renowned thanks to its tourist offer of 5-star lodging options and great connectivity with the capital for wine lovers. The Wine Route, made up of 17 vineyards, invites local and international tourists to explore beautiful landscapes and taste the best red and white wines of Chile.

    How to travel to Colchagua? Well, there are two specifical wineries with luxury hotels that have heliports for their guests, with flights from different parts of Santiago. We review both options below, which can be accessed through the Flapper platform.

The land was bought by Norwegian-Uruguayan businessman Alexander Vik with the clear objective of creating one of the best wines in the world. He spent a year testing the soil before committing to the parcel of land and has now reached out to create one of the best hotels in the country. Rates start at US $800 per night per person, including buffet breakfast, lunch with soft drinks, and dinner with a glass of VIK wine.
