Overview

The long, narrow country, which stretches like a band on the west coast of South America, scores with its magnificent natural landscapes.

Varied landscapes and climatic zones are stretching out over more than 4,000 km, from the bony-dry Arica or the lunar landscapes of the Atacama Desert in the north to the storm-swept southern end of the world at the notorious Cape Horn, from the almost 7000 m high Ojos de Salado to the picturesque lakes and Araucaria forests of the “Little South” (Sur Chico), peppered with perfectly formed volcanoes.
Finally, the highlight of a trip to Chile is Patagonia, with its seemingly endless steppe landscapes, from which individual mountain massifs rise abruptly, scattered with turquoise lagoons and glaciers.
