You’ll make your first stop at the Punta Angeles Lighthouse for a spectacular view of the harbor. Valparaiso was once an important stopping point to reach California during the Gold Rush.

Admire some of the world’s best street art and explore he bohemian maze of vibrant alleys on the city’s famous Alegre and Concepcion HIlls
After exploring the hills, return to the port where you’ll take a half-hour boat ride across the harbor toward Viña del Mar. Just minutes from Valparaiso, Viña del Mar feels like a different world. The “Garden City” is famous for pristine lawns, 19th century mansions, seaside casino, and popular beaches. Enjoy the dichotomy of these two quirky sister cities, before setting out to Concon.
Concon is located outside the bustle of Viña del Mar, and is famous for its spectacular sand dunes. Here, you’ll have the option to climb to the summit of the quiet and grandiose dunes for a breathtaking ocean views and a strong sea breeze that makes you feel alive. Alternatively, you can visit “Roca Oceánica” overlook at the base of the dunes for more stunning looks at the harbor (and the dunes towering behind you!)
