For those who would enjoy a tour of the Colchagua Valley by train, there is an excellent opportunity to do so on the “Tren Sabores del Valle.” On its way to the Colchagua Valley, the train crosses Chile’s most popular wine-producing valleys while entertaining passengers with live music and wine tastings to get them in the right mood for the vineyard tour. After a two hour ride, the train arrives at San Fernando, the “Gate to the Colchagua Valley”. The tour continues by bus to the town of Santa Cruz, right in the heart of the valley, to discover the gastronomy and traditions of this famous wine region. Guests will have some free time to explore the city centre with its beautiful Plaza de Armas and colonial-style buildings. In addition they will have the opportunity to eat lunch at one of various local restaurants.
Afterwards the tour continues to a renowned winery of the Colchagua Valley. During their visit, passengers will gain insight into Chilean winegrowing and learn about the special characteristics of this privileged region. Of course, they will also personally experience the quality of the wine during the wine tasting that follows. At the end of this exciting day, passengers will be taken back to San Fernando by bus, where the train to Santiago awaits them.
This tour is currently offered twice a month, always on Saturdays. From January to March, there are four departures scheduled per month.
