Chile

Located between the Pacific Ocean and the Andes Mountains and nearly 3,000 miles long but only 150 miles wide at its widest point, Chile is the world’s longest country. Despite its long thin shape Chile provides travelers with an amazing geographic diversity from the dry Atacama Desert in the North, through to glaciers, mountain peaks, lakes and dense forests of the South. It offers nature lovers and adventurers alike a myriad of experience options unrivaled anywhere in South America.

About Chile

Nestled between the Andes Mountains and the Pacific Ocean, Chile is a county of geographical extremes from the driest desert in the world in the North to immense ice fields and glaciers in the South and the landscape in between a mixture of scrubland, vineyards and orchards, rainforest, fjords and steppes. All towered over by the Andes with its peaks and volcanoes along its Eastern border.  Adventurers and nature lovers are presented with endless possibilities for outdoor activities, from trekking, horse riding, climbing, skiing, whitewater rafting, sea kayaking, bird watching and 4x4 excursions, fly-fishing and more.

Patagonia, is at the at the southernmost tip of the Americas and is where Chileans and non-Chilean visitors alike come to gaze at the region’s many spectacular glaciers, hike the rugged peaks in the country’s most famous national park, Parque Nacional Torres del Paine, flyfish for wild trout in Patagonia’s crystal clear rivers or to visit the penguins.

In the North in the region “El Norte Grande” is the Atacama Desert; the driest desert in the world, a 1000km stretch of parched wasteland which contains areas where no rainfall has been recorded – ever. This harsh landscape climbs towards the altiplano in the east with lakes and salt flats for biking and snowcapped volcanoes for hiking.

In the heart of the country is Santiago your gateway to famous vineyards and some of the best ski resorts in the Southern Hemisphere as well as the nearby beach of Vina del Mar.

No Chile tour is complete without a stop at the mysterious Easter Island. A small volcanic landmass in the South Pacific Easter Island is considered one of the most remote islands in the world. It is home of one of the most mysterious civilizations in the world and where you will be amazed by the famous moai statues that cover the island. It also offers good conditions for surfing and has a number of islets which are popular for diving and snorkeling.
