Chile is many destinations rolled into one, from the snowy mountains in Patagonia to the hot Atacama desert, it is a destination for everyone. With direct flights available from the UK, it is even more easier to visit this beautiful country. Santiago, the country’s capital,  was discovered in 1541 by Spanish Conquistador Pedro de Valdivia. It has since become a major South American city that offers first class hotels and restaurants and access to the latest technology and services. It is located in central Chile, surrounded by snow-capped Andes mountains to the East and the Chilean coastal range to the West.

You could visit the Atacama desert, where the dramatic and rocky landscape is ideal for photographers and those who love exploring unique places. It is home to many spectacular sights including enormous valleys, glistening salt lakes , beautiful blue highland lagoons, explosive geysers and charming colonial towns. Look into the sky at night and you will also find some of the best views of the stars round anywhere in the world.  You could explore the desert by hiring a car, enjoying an escorted tour or staying in luxury inclusive lodges where all your meals and excursions are included.

Patagonia is a distinct geographical region at the base of South America spanning the lower sections of Argentina and Chile. It contains plateaus, glaciers, plains, foothills, wild animals, towering mountains, whales, penguins, and more! It also contains everything from rustic mountains lodges to luxury, 5* resorts and eco-lodges.

Another great place to visit whilst you’re in Chile is Easter Island. Just a 5 hour flight away from Santiago is a place that feels like a parallel reality to ours. Located to the east of Chile, this tiny speck of land may be hard to get to, but is is definitely worth the effort. It is one of the most isolated places in the world and absolutely incredible to discover. Easter Island will take you on a completely new journey through the beautiful nature, surprising secrets and remarkable history. There are over 1000 Maui statues scattered over the island, making it a truly mysterious and interesting place to visit.

The Chilean Wine Region is the perfect place to sample Chile’s best wines, discover boutique hotels and outdoor adventure, or simply relax in beautiful surroundings. The central valley is nestled between two mountain ranges (The Andes and the Coastal Mountain range) and crossed by the rivers that make their soil so fertile.
