Chile - Touring Holidays
An escorted tour to Chile will introduce you to a host of dramatic scenery, from mighty volcanoes and mountains to glistening fjords and glaciers. The country occupies a long, narrow strip of land between the Andes to the east and the Pacific Ocean to the west. And its coastline, which stretches 4,300km, is seemingly endless.
South American adventures
Chile is also a gateway to further exciting South American adventures – it borders Peru, Bolivia and Argentina, and its territory also includes the intriguing Easter Island. A country of geological extremes, whose 15 million or so residents are largely confined to its major cities, much of Chile is an untouched wilderness.
As you travel its length, you’ll discover a mixture of climates, which in turn deliver a diverse mix of exceptional natural landscapes. The north is dry and cold at high altitudes, with bouts of precipitation allowing plants to bloom in the Atacama Desert, which is the most arid in the world. The warmth of the central area is perfect for producing wine, while in the south you’ll find lush jungle.
Torres del Paine
Nearly 20% of the country is protected as a nature reserve, with Torres del Paine National Park in Patagonia recognised as one of the most beautiful and unique places in the world. A backdrop of lakes, rivers, waterfalls and glaciers offers a stunning habitat for many bird species, from penguin and flamingo to parrot and condor. Chile is also home to llama, puma and the elusive pudú – the world’s smallest deer.
Chile’s maze of glistening fjords gives access to Punta Arenas, the southernmost city on Earth. And make sure your Chile holiday includes a visit to its capital, Santiago, which occupies a stunning location beneath the towering Andes, with spectacular views assured.
