Squeezed between the soaring Andes and the Pacific, this long, narrow country provides a variety of stunning landscapes, from the tropical beach paradise of Arica in the north to Antarctic islands of the south where thousands of penguins converge at mating season. Chile’s peerless natural wonders include the spectacular Torres de Paine National Park, where towering peaks are reflected in mirror-like lakes; the world’s driest desert, Atacama; the geysers and salt flats near Santa Rita, and the forests of Chiloé National Park. Discover a landscape marked by volcanoes (2,000 of them), mountains, glaciers and seacoast, home to llamas, alpacas, condors and sea lions. The sporting opportunities are as limitless as the landscapes: horseback riding on the plains, skiing in the mountains, water sports in the Pacific and fly-fishing in the clear rivers running down from the Andes. For those in search of truly unique voyage of discovery, take a trip to otherworldly Rapa Nui (Easter Island), the most isolated territory in the world, and wonder at its mysterious statues. Find comfort and refinement in Spanish Colonial-flavoured Santiago where visitors can dine on delicious local meat and seafood dishes washed down with a world-class wine from Chile’s prestigious vineyards.
