Cut off from the rest of South America by the ramparts of the great Andean
Mountain chain and the driest desert on the planet, Chile has a distinctly different character to the rest of the continent. Stretching more than 4000km from north to south, and only 440km at its widest point, Chile offers a spectacular array of landscapes and climates. You can reach either extreme in Chile; from the scorched desert to miles of fantastic skiing, from indulgent winery hopping to a close up view of epic glaciers and fjords. Equally fascinating is its unique Pacific territory of Easter Island, the most isolated inhabited island in the world.
Chile’s breathtaking diversity can create a dilemma for travellers – how do you fit everything in? After all, what could you leave out – certainly not the out-of-this world arid moonscapes of the Atacama Desert at the northern tip with its hot springs, geysers, active volcanoes and ancient ruins. Then far to the south lies Patagonia, also known as 'the most beautiful end of the world' and the indescribably spectacular Torres del Paine National Park. Hike, paddle and bike the region to truly appreciate every angle of the three granite monoliths, also known as The Towers, as they catch many different shades of daylight. Chile’s capital Santiago is the gateway to these adventures, but also a great city to spend a few days. Around every corner is a pretty art and craft gallery, a boisterous performer, or a street vendor serving deliciously fresh local cuisine. With a backdrop of the majestic Andes and second-to-none wining and dining, Santiago is becoming one of South America’s most economically successful countries, and a satisfyingly fun one to explore for any kind of traveller.
Sprawling busily across the fertile Central Valley at the foot of the mighty Andes Mountains,
Santiago boasts one of the most dazzling backdrops of any capital city in the world.
Skyscrapers stand alongside Spanish colonial buildings, reflecting a contrasting mix between modern and historic times. The bustling streets full of performers, many parks and museums, colourful nightlife and world-class restaurants make Santiago a great stopover in your South American journey. Within a short scenic drive of the capital, you can relax on a beautiful Pacific
Coast beach, enjoy a day in the winelands, or hit the slopes at one of four world renowned ski resorts in the Andes Mountains.
Winery & Valparaiso
Leave Santiago for a day and absorb the sights outside of the city. Your first stop is a winery in the Casablanca Valley.
Sip on a wine while wandering the beautiful gardens and learning about the carmenere grape, which is distinctive to
Chile. Travel onwards to Valparaiso, the oldest port in Chile. Colourful houses with beautiful ocean views, mural art and a slower pace of life is what makes Valparaiso so unique.
