The adventure for most people begins in the cosmopolitan city of Santiago, which is formed of many distinct neighbourhoods, each with their own characteristics. A short drive out of the city will bring you to vast vineyards and world famous wineries.
In the north of the country, the barren beauty of the Atacama Desert is a photographer’s dream with its ethereal dunes and lunar landscapes. To the south in Patagonia, be amazed by the towering granite peaks, turquoise lakes and vast glaciers of the Torres del Paine National Park, one of South America’s most famous attractions and a magnet for hikers, wildlife enthusiasts and anyone seeking solitude in the mountains.
Less wild but equally as stunning, the Chilean Lake District is a breathtakingly beautiful stretch of snow covered peaks, forest fringed lakes and charming Alpine towns. More off the beaten track, yet easily accessible from the Lake District lies the fascinating fishing villages & UNESCO listed churches of Chiloé Island.
Far out in the Pacific, lies the enigmatic Easter Island which is utterly isolated and like nowhere else on earth.
Chile will fascinate, amaze and excite you all in one day and Trailfinders can help create your perfect tailormade Chilean adventure.
