Spanning more than half the length of South America, Chile is a land of rich human history and a staggering variety of landscapes. From the Pacific coast to the rugged Andes you can experience volcanoes and mountains, salt flats and steppes, lakes and rivers, forests, beaches, glaciers and fjords, as well as charming towns and cities buzzing with culture and history.

Hike among the majestic and soul-stirring wilderness of Patagonia, with its spectacular rugged mountains, forests, lakes and glaciers, tackling the classic Torres del Paine Circuit or the Paine & Fitz Roy Trek. Explore the gigantic fjords and frozen landscapes of southern Patagonia and then head north to the dramatic Atacama Desert for striking scenes of geysers, salt flats and sandy mountain ranges.

Experience the spectacular mountain scenery of the Lakes District, enjoy the myriad opportunities for wildlife spotting, or perhaps visit the mysterious Easter Island, one of Earth's most isolated places and home to the intriguing monumental sculptures of the Rapa Nui people.

Soak up culture, history, architecture and entertainment in Santiago, and enjoy the cobblestoned alleyways and colourful street art of Chile's most artistic and intriguing city, Valparaíso. Shop colourful markets for traditional handicrafts, enjoy local cuisine and experience Chilean culture first hand by taking part in one of the country's vibrant festivals.
