Chile may be just 110 miles wide, but within its borders you’ll find epic glaciers and mountains, sprawling alpine forests, isolated coastal fjords and thousands of fiery volcanoes.
2,500 miles long but barely as wide as England, Chile encompasses extremes of both fire and ice that result in some truly astonishing landscapes. Stand in the Atacama Desert, for example, and you’ll be surrounded by salt pans, explosive geysers, huge volcanoes and the Moon Valley – a lunar-esque landscape that is alien and, at the same time, strikingly beautiful.
In complete contrast are the jagged, blue ice peaks of the Patagonian Ice Cap where the Andes finally stagger into the sea. Ask one of our experts for a tailor-made itinerary and you could find yourself at the heart of this awesome wilderness, exploring the glaciers, lakes and soaring granite mountains of Torres del Paine National Park.
For a thin country, Chile certainly offers a breadth of experiences. There’s eerie Easter Island with its enigmatic statues, and Chiloé with its colourful stilted houses. If you’re a wine connoisseur, we can recommend the finest vineyards in the Central Valley, where you can sample wonderful hospitality, brilliant local cuisine and, of course, world class Chilean wine. We can also suggest the best hikes and places to stay in the Chilean Lake District, or the ultimate spot for stargazing.
Whatever your interests may be, our experts will use their knowledge of this part of the world to tailor your perfect holiday.
