Chile Holidays - holidays to Chile - Atacama Desert

Chile Holidays

Chile is a long and thin country, with some of the most geologically diverse landscapes in the world - ranging from the deserts of Atacama in the north, to the scenic Winelands and the beautiful Lake District, and culminating in the icefields of spectacular Patagonia in the south.
 
These are all bordered on the east by the mighty Andes, the mountain range that runs the entire length of South America.
 
There are moonscapes with steam geysers and boiling mud pools in the Atacama Desert, sophisticated cities and rich winelands in the centre and spectacular glaciers in Patagonia not to mention the superb opportunities for sport and outdoor adventure on any holiday to Chile.
  
For advice on tailor-made Chile holidays, ring our friendly South America team on 01582 766122 or email us via our online form to start planning a trip.
 
ALL OUR CHILE HOLIDAYS ARE FINANCIALLY PROTECTED wherever in the world you live. Selling holidays for over 15 years.

Chile is 2,650 miles in length, but only 110 miles wide. In recent years the capital city of Santiago has become a modern, convenient holiday centre and is the arrival point for most holidays to Chile. In contrast, the laid-back coastal port of Valparaiso boasts a great maritime tradition, with picturesque waterside and hilltop neighbourhoods, as well as a vibrant artistic buzz.
 
In the far north of the country, the vast Atacama Desert claims to be one of the driest place on earth, but still supports a surprising amount of bird, insect and reptile life. As one of Chile’s top tourist locations it attracts thousands every year to marvel at the spectacular landscape and geology. Over the ages, wind and water have carved fantastic rock shapes and the national parks protect both the eco-system and the indigenous traditions and crafts. Even the sunsets are world famous!
 
Moving south, the scene changes again and you reach the stunning forested lakes and volcanoes of the Lake District. Open-air pursuits of every kind abound here and the ancient ethnic culture and handicrafts of the descendants of the original Malpuche people hold sway.
 
Shared by Chile and Argentina, iconic Patagonia occupies the southern third of both countries. In Chile much of Patagonia is protected and even in a continent of scenic wonders, excels with some of the finest and most unforgettable spectacles in the world. First among these is Torres del Paine, with its fantastic granite peaks, animal life and forest trekking. This is also the location of Tierra del Fuego at the world’s end, again shared with Argentina, where sea and ice meet in a stunning glacial landscape.  
 
Far away in the Pacific, fascinating Easter Island is part of Chile. A five-hour flight from Santiago makes this a relatively straightforward extension to a holiday in Chile. There is plenty to do here but the main attractions are the hundreds of centuries old Moai statues, mysteriously carved and erected on this tiny spec of land in the middle of nowhere.
