A country of extreme and startling contrasts

Chile is the world’s longest country, and the northern and southern extremities appear to be from different planets.

Start your trip in Santiago where you can explore the restored buildings and streets of the Bellavista district and take stock of its vibrant art scene, home to some of the continent’s most experimental artists. Then perhaps head to Valparaiso, a UNESCO World Heritage Site on the coast which hosts a collection of brightly coloured original corrugated iron and timber houses, subtly restored to maintain the town’s unique bohemian character.

The Atacama Desert is the driest place on earth and this, together with the very high altitude and bright blue skies, give the atmosphere a startling clarity to view the ‘Moon Valley’ and its breath taking volcanic backdrop or the eerie, bubbling geological phenomenon that is the Tatio Geysers.

Driving south from Santiago, spend a few nights in the Cachapoal or Colchagua Valleys staying in some of the most prestigious wineries in the world in a beautiful mountain setting. To the south of the country, Chile’s Lake District is a collection of heart-stopping lakes, volcanoes and picturesque islands, home to a large indigenous population keeping the tribal culture very much alive. We particularly enjoyed our visit to Chiloe Island – a tranquil world set apart from the rest of the country.

In Patagonia you can walk, ride or drive through awesome glacial scenery and windswept plains, returning in the evenings to stay at some of the most remarkable hotels in South America.
