Chile Touring

CHILE TOURING

A ribbon of land that unfurls more than 4,500km along the South American west coast, yet is never any more than 250km wide, Chile’s unique geology means you have the unusual opportunity to cross stark deserts and view awe-inspiring glaciers – and everything in between – without even leaving the borders.

Crossing climate zones and latitudes, a Chile tour is an extraordinary experience as you switch from the driest desert sands of Atacama, to snow-brushed volcanos, to the rolling greenery of its renowned Central Valley vineyards, to the alpine splendour of its forested Lake District, to the dramatic glaciers that mark South America’s most southerly tip.

...

Hemmed in by the Andes Mountains and the Pacific Ocean, few countries in the world can boast such a distinct variety of landscapes, but that simply makes Chile a perfect choice for a tour that captures the essence of South America in one tremendous package.

The striking contrasts begin with a visit to the Atacama Desert, recognised as the driest region on earth with just 1mm of rain a year in places. As well as barren sands, parts of the desert are also made up of eerie salt flats, peppered with stunning lagoons tinged in an unusual emerald hue, and powerful geysers that burst with steam.

Journey south across this long, thin nation and marvel at the changes in the landscape, which becomes greener as you continue on, from the manicured vineyards in and around the vibrant capital city of Santiago, to the picturesque scenery of ‘Los Lagos’ (Lake District), right to the southernmost stretches of Patagonia and the Torres del Paine.

On the way, towering volcanos, lush greenery, idyllic lakes, charming towns and friendly people will line your route, an evolving landscape that is never anything less than extraordinary.

Reach the southernmost tip of mainland South America and the glaciers of Patagonia, where penguins and whales can be viewed, mark a striking contrast to where you started in the north. Such disparate lands, however, are what Chile is all about.
