Chile Experience a Custom Chile Tour Designed by the Experts in Luxury Travel Let’s plan my trip From majestic glaciers and sweeping landscape to one of the driest deserts in the world (and one of the best places to stargaze!), with verdant vineyards, mountains, and beaches in between this tall, thin country has just about everything to offer. Starting in the north, you can visit the incredible landscape of San Pedro Atacama. Here, you will feel as if you are on another planet, and so truly appreciate the stargazing in this high, dry desert. You can also visit the lovely thermal baths, impressive exploding geysers, and colorful sunsets that will take your breath away. Moving south, you will find Chile’s wine regions – most of Chile’s delicious wine is produced a few hours’ drive from Santiago. Chile started making wine in the 16th century with the arrival of the Spanish, and have become one of the best places to find great wines. While here, you can visit one, or a few, of the world-class vineyards, trying some of the best wines on the planet. For yet another change of scenery, you can continue on to Chile’s capital – Santiago. Here you can enjoy fantastic street art, delicious food and wine, incredible museums, and everything else a vibrant, South American city has to offer! At the southern tip of this long country, you will find Patagonia, one of the most beautiful places on Earth. Here you can explore giant glaciers, colorful lakes, go by horseback across the rugged landscape, relax in the thermal baths, and so much more! No trip to Chile is complete without a few days in this wilderness. And far of the coast is the tiny and isolated Easter Island. You will want to visit for the famous moai statues, and stay for the intriguing Polynesian Rapa Nui culture with their rich traditions of dancing, stone work, and myths. Chile has a little bit of everything, and so is a perfect addition to your luxury South American tour, or a place that can be wonderfully enjoyed on its own.
