Chile Holidays

With its unusual elongated shape, vast stretches of coastline, multitude of mountains, unusual wildlife and as many as 36 national parks, Chile is a destination which offers contrast and diversity in unparalleled abundance. From the dry desert landscapes of the Atacama in the north, to the ice filled fjords of Patagonia in the south, this is a country full of environmental extremes, unique experiences, laid back lifestyles and complex cultural history.

Whether you are simply overnighting in Santiago on the way to Antarctica, or roaming free to live like a local, Chile will captivate and charm you in a way that no other country could. The people pride themselves on their hospitality, the infrastructure – for the most part – is modern and efficient, the scenery will suck the air from your lungs and the world class wining and dining will help ensure that the fun doesn’t stop when the sun goes down.

Our selection of Chile holidays is designed to take in a collection of the most popular highlights, but can easily be tailored to meet your own specific interests, time constraints, budget and requirements.

About Chile

The origin of the name Chile is much disputed, with theories linking it to historic Inca valleys, a Mapuche translation meaning ‘where the land ends’ and even the warble made by a native bird. Whatever the truth, the name became popularised by the Spanish conquistadors who arrived from Peru in the early 16th century.

Natural barriers to the outside world, including deserts, mountains and oceans, have resulted in a fairly isolated existence for much of Chile’s history. This has created a number of distinctive pristine environments which can not be seen in such close proximity anywhere else on earth. In one trip you can visit the world’s driest (non-polar) desert, gaze at the majesty of the universe from one of several scientific observatories, bathe in volcanic geothermal waters, relax on a sun drenched beach, sample some of South America’s best wine, sail through iceberg dotted fjords, trek among imposing granite peaks, marvel at wildlife from pumas to penguins and even tag on a flight to Easter Island – a magnificent remote isle, sprinkled with huge stone sculptures known as Moai, which stand as peculiar clues to a mysterious past.

Chile has in recent years emerged as one of the continent’s most stable and prosperous nations and is now widely perceived to be one of the safest and fastest growing tourist destinations in Latin America. An expanding network of internal and international flights is making getting into and around Chile easier than ever before.
