Chile is a long thin country stretching some 2500 miles down the south-western Pacific coast of the South American continent with some offshore islands in the Pacific Ocean including the remote Easter Island. Holidays to Chile offer an incredible diversity of landscapes from the world's driest desert in the north, to the bleak isolation of Tierra del Fuego in the south. The average width of the mainland, from the sea to the Andes, is just 100 miles.
Whether you are cruising through the fjords, skiing in the northern hemisphere's summer, hiking in Torres del Paine or exploring the salt flats and geysers of the Atacama Desert, a Chile adventure holiday is bound to captivate your imagination.
The capital Santiago is geographically in the centre of Chile and a perfect climate for wine production. Further south, the scenery becomes more verdant, then you cross ice-fields and glacial fjords to reach Punta Arenas, the most southerly city in Chile and the gateway to Tierra del Fuego and Antarctica, the end of the world.
Many of the places of interest north of Santiago are on the coast - pretty fishing towns (and great seafood) and good beaches. In addition, the Andes always hold hidden treasures and the Atacama Desert is definitely not to be missed.
Chile can also be easily combined with Argentina, as well as Bolivia and Peru. Whatever you wish to see on your trip, holidays to Chile offer a wonderful diversity of natural landscapes, mixed with sophisticated city life, gourmet wine and food and of course always the soaring Andes never very far away.
