Day 2: Carmelo and Wine Tour

We take you to Caramelo, a quiet coastal town on the edge of Uruguay's wine growing region. Built in the 18th Century by the Jesuits, the  Calera de las Huerfanas church was once located in a large farm - and it is here that the Jesuits first introduced wine production to Uruguay.  Your tour continues to two of Uruguay's most respected family wineries.  After your guided wine tasting you will continue to a traditional local wine lodge for the night.

We take you to Uruguay's colorful capital city.  We will take you on a tour of the Ciudad Vieja old town and lively Port Market in the afternoon.  Overnight in Montevideo.

Day 5:  Rocha Province

Transfer to the Province of Rocha - arguably the most beautiful province in Uruguay with its pristine beaches, emerald shores and network of lagoons.   Visit a  working ranch before continuing for a short hike to see a very special collection of Ombu trees.  These rare trees grow for hundreds of years forming incredible shapes.  A picnic lunch is included. In the afternoon, continue to a traditional Uruguayan estancia for your overnight stay.

Day 6: Cabo Polonio

Travel to the small town of Cabo Polonio, one of Charles Darwin's stops on The Beagle.  Acess here is by 4 x 4 over the huge, shifting sand dunes.  Your tour includes a chance to observe the local sea lions, as well as lunch at a seafoot restaurant fronting the sea.

Day 7: Lavelleja Ranches

Continue into the very different inland region of Uruguay.  This is an area of rolling hills and ranches and is known as the heart of the country.  You will travel along a gorgeous panoramic route with stops at viewpoints, to a traditional Posada (farmstead) for the night.

Day 8: Lavelleja Ranches

Spend this day at your leisure, taking in the many unforgettable sights of the spectacular Posada by trekking along the hillsides or taking a horseback riding tour. 

Day 9: Pueblo Garzon

We take you to the small town of  Garzon to visit the famed Colinas de Garzon Olive Oil Plantation with a  tasting included.  In the afternoon we take you to the coastal town of Jose Ignacio.

Overnight in Jose Ignacio.

Day 10: Jose Ignacio and Punta del Este

Enjoy a free day to explore Jose Ignacio with its sea life, water sports, thriving art scene and whale watching.  If you would rather try your hand at spotting the jet set of South America - Punta del Este is a short day trip away.
