MAPUCHE EXPERIENCE IN THE MIDDLE OF THE CAPITAL OF CHILE, ANOTHER WAY OF LIVING THE CULTURE

 

Santiago, the Chilean capital, is a city with a versatile character and diverse touristic options. It would be a mistake to think that the only thing you can do here is to visit monuments, museums, and shopping malls. Santiago has a lot to offer – from tours around the city to eco-travel to indigenous tourism. You will be surprised to know that this is the region with the largest concentration of the Mapuche population in all of Chile.

 

In this cultural experience, you will be able to approach the ancestral Mapuche culture through its protagonists. Graciela, community leader, will go over her personal history, why she lives in Santiago and all the initiatives taken by this community in the capital. In addition, you will be able to get to know part of the Mapuche culture through the loom, gastronomy and a first-person experience.

 

Travolution in Santiago is identity, it is national history that you can travel through and relive thanks to the locals and their stories.

Location

Santiago

SANTIAGO, THE CAPITAL

Santiago, the Chilean capital, is a city with a versatile character and diverse touristic options. It would be a mistake to think that the only thing you can do here is to visit monuments, museums and shopping malls. Santiago has a lot to offer - from tours around the city to eco-travel to indigenous tourism.
 
It was founded by a Spanish conquistador Pedro de Valdivia and, over all these years, Santiago has become a mix of oldest tradition, Spanish influence, and modern architectural wonders that can offer you plenty of things to do and see.
 
Located at the foot of the Andes on the banks of the Mapocho River, Santiago is surrounded by hills and mountains with incredible views towards natural landscapes where you can enjoy adventure tourism doing skiing and snowboarding, hiking, climbing, rafting and more.
 
Being the biggest city of Chile and the fifth-biggest in South America, Santiago consists of 37 communes and they are all different, so your perception of the city will depend on the commune you stay in or visit.
 
Not many people know that but right in the capital of Chile, there are places where indigenous people live. Community tourism and indigenous cultures is what we at Travolution want to make visible. It is always a pleasure to share with our travelers how they lived, cooked and shared their time in a Mapuche community in their Rukas (typical Mapuche construction). Visiting this place is a great way to learn about their history, culture and crafts.
 
If you are interested in having this special cultural experience, we will be happy to organize a personalized trip for you. If you would like to see other options in Santiago, check them out here or ask us about others that might interest you.
 

Come and enjoy a different experience of sustainable and community-based tourism!
