Overview & Highlights

Chile’s natural highlights, from the Atacama Desert in the north to the southern ice fields and glaciers of Patagonia. The holiday also visits Santiago and the volcanic lake district.

This comprehensive tour of Chile’s natural highlights is jam-packed full of outdoor experiences. Travel from the moon-like Atacama Desert to Santiago and on to the snow-dipped cones and tumbling streams of the lake district. Continue to view Patagonia’s cathedral-high glaciers, icy lagoons and wildlife-filled grasslands.

A skinny coastal strip backed by the Andes mountains, Chile has a variety of climate and landscapes to match its changing latitudes. It’s a peaceful and welcoming place with a good infrastructure, and, in spite of the distances, it’s easy to get around. Excellent hotels, which you can enhance with your choice of fresh sea food and delicious wines are all among the ingredients of this superb holiday.
