4. Santiago: Private Pomaire, Isla Negra, and Pablo Neruda Tour
Immerse yourself in Chile's history and culture on a private guided trip from Santiago to Isla Negra, the Pablo Neruda Museum, and Pomaire. Learn about Pomaire's clay craftwork, as well as Pablo Neruda's, winner of the Nobel Prize for Literature, life and work at his dedicated museum on Isla Negra. Start your journey bright and early and head down along the highway of the Sun, heading to Pablo Neruda's house in Isla Negra. Sit back and relax on the 1.5-hour long journey, taking in the expansive Chilean landscape en route. Arrive at Isla Negra, where Pablo Neruda built his house. Converted into a house-museum, the author's previous home holds numerous treasures and objects, collections of bottles, shells, and an imposing figurehead - all of which were a constant source of inspiration for the famous poet. Stop for lunch at your own expense before starting your return trip. On the way back to Santiago, visit the famous and traditional town of Pomaire. Called a Chilean typical zone, the main characteristic of Pomaire is its clay crafts.
