Transposed to Western Europe, Chile would stretch from Norway to Tunisia, some 4,300km. A skinny coastal strip backed by the Andes mountain range, it has a variety of climate and landscape to match its changing latitudes. The country is proud of its arts and culture, producing world-famous poets and authors.
But it’s the awe-inspiring scenery that provides the greatest appeal: wildlife-filled countryside, from scorched volcano-dotted desert through fertile lake-land to a Patagonian wilderness surrounded by enormous glaciers. This is a country of the great outdoors, and there is a range of activities on offer to match. The icing on the cake is fascinating Easter Island, a remote Chilean territory with a Polynesian culture two time zones away in the Pacific Ocean.
Following a history of upheavals, Chile is a peaceful and welcoming place with a good infrastructure and, in spite of the distances it is easy to get around, with excellent hotels, abundant fresh seafood and cheap, delicious wines.
