Chile

Chile is a land of extremes; it lies between the Pacific Ocean and the Andes and is only 180km at its widest point. The significant variance in latitude gives Chile a unique variety of climates and landscapes. Chile’s attractions range from the towering volcanic peaks of the Andes to the ancient forests of the Lake District and end in Patagonia where the ice glaciers drown into the infinite ocean. The diversity of climates has created a broad variety of landscapes, consequently creating inhabitants to adapt to the raw power of nature, generating a fantastic assortment of cultures.

The Atacama Desert in the far north is considered the driest desert on earth. In the central region, Santiago, Valparaiso & the Wine Valley are the ideal destinations to wind down after your Chilean adventures and taste some of the best wines in the world.

The Valdivian forests in Chile’s Lake district in northern Patagonia, offer crystalline lakes and snow-capped volcanoes. Whereas, Chile’s Southern Patagonian region contains some of the most dramatic scenery on the continent including fjords, glaciers and the iconic Torres del Paine National Park.

When to go to Chile?

–  Santiago is roughly the same latitude as Sydney and experiences sunny, dry summers and cold winters.
–  The Atacama Desert has warm days and cooler nights all year round; prices rise over the summer months and are generally at their lowest during the Southern Hemisphere winter.
–  The southern hemisphere summer is the peak season for Patagonia.

Our Experts Choice:

–  Roll up your sleeves and discover the art of making empanadas and the classic pisco sour cocktail at a culinary class in Santiago.
–  Learn about the culture and traditions of Chile’s indigenous Mapuche people and overnight in a traditional Mapuche hut.
–  Enjoy some of the best star-gazing on the planet and visit an observatory in San Pedro de Atacama.
–  Get off the beaten track, away from the maddening crowds and explore some of Chile’s newest and best Patagonian National Parks.
