Overview & Highlights
This comprehensive holiday shows off the variety of landscapes from the Atacama desert to Patagonia, via sunny vineyards and the volcano-dotted lake district. Private travel and top quality hotels throughout.
Transposed to Europe, Chile would stretch from Norway to Tunisia. It extends some 4,000 kilometres, down a ribbon of land that clings to the western flank of the Andes, with a staggering variety of landscape, vegetation and climate. This comprehensive tour will take you from the lunar landscape of the Atacama Desert in the north, through the patchwork vineyards that surround the cosmopolitan capital, Santiago, and the forested volcanoes of the lake district to the Straits of Magellan, where stormy waters lash the broad, windswept landscapes and snow-capped peaks of Patagonia.
- Santiago: walking tour
