A country of extraordinary natural beauty, Chile stretches from the salt lakes and red sand of the Atacama Desert in the north, to the glaciers and dramatic granite pillars of the Torres del Paine National Park in the Patagonian south. The country stretches some 4,300 kilometres down the south-western Pacific coast of South America. It also includes remote and mysterious Easter Island. The average width of the mainland, from the sea to the Andes, is just 180 kilometres (approx 100 miles). Whether you are cruising through the fjords, skiing during the northern hemisphere’s summer, hiking in Torres del Paine or exploring the salt flats and geysers of the Atacama, a Chile holiday is a captivating experience.
Santiago - Chile's capital
The modern capital, Santiago, is one of the most enjoyable in South America. It's close to Chile’s world-renowned vineyards and for those seeking an adrenaline rush, its an easy transfer to some of the country’s best ski slopes.
Atacama Desert - North
In the north of Chile lies the unique Atacama Desert. Not only is it the driest place on earth, but also one of the most unforgettable. From the town of San Pedro de Atacama, you can visit vivid red desert landscapes, Altiplanic lagoons and the Valley of the Moon.
Torres del Paine National Park - South
In stark contrast to the arid desert, lying to the south of the country is the Torres del Paine National Park, Chile’s most spectacular and well-known national park. It is famed for its impressive granite pillars, but its awe-inspiring glaciers, vividly coloured lakes and rugged plains will also take your breath away. It is perfect for hikers and horse riders alike.
Accommodation on a Chile holiday
Chile offers travellers fabulous accommodation even in the remotest areas. After you’ve had your fill of the country's beautiful panoramas by day, in the evenings it’s time to feast on Patagonian lamb or Pacific seafood washed down with fine Chilean wines.
