Chile offers a host of possibilities for your next South American holiday. Visitors from all over the globe are lured to Chile’s breath-taking and diverse natural geography, its thriving ecotourism community, vibrant cities and indigenous cultures.
The Chilean landscape is partly comprised of rugged and barren landscapes such as the arid Atacama Desert. As you move across the Andes Mountains you find the incredibly fertile winelands of the Central Valley and the old-growth forests of the Lake District, a remarkably stark contrast. The unique natural features in each region mean there is never a shortage of new and wondrous terrain to explore.
If you are after action and adventure then you will want to hike your way through the mountains and glaciers of Torres del Paine National Park, located in Chilean Patagonia. If you really want to widen your horizons then take a trip to the mysterious Easter Island or the Juan Fernández Archipelago, where you will feel like you are on the edge of the earth. Both remote destinations are accessible with flights leaving from Santiago International Airport.
For a less strenuous holiday, enjoy the luxuries of the stylish capital city, Santiago. The prosperous capital is a host of gilded colonial buildings, sophisticated boulevards and fascinating museums and cultural landmarks. Spend a few days absorbing the city’s sights, such as the Centro Cultural Palacio de La Moneda, an ever-changing underground cultural centre or La Moneda Palace, where you can tour the presidential estate. Choosing from among the city’s museums, theatres, excellent restaurant scene and exciting nightlife, you will have your days and nights full of the best Santiago has to offer.
Santiago is sandwiched between the soaring Andes Mountains and the Pacific Ocean, offering visitors the best of both worlds. Where else can you zip off to the mountains in the morning and spend the afternoon relaxing on the beach. Not bad for one day!
About an hour and a half from the capital is the gorgeous Colchagua Wine Valley. Spend the day here sampling delicious Chilean wines in some of the many state-of–the-art wineries and boutique hotels.
