Chile is a land of striking contrasts and extraordinary natural beauty from the wilds of Patagonia, to the breathtaking lakes district and the lunar landscape of the Atacama desert. It is one of the most prosperous countries in South America, with an acclaimed wine industry, an array of luxury travel experiences and outstanding opportunities for soft adventure from horse riding to walking, fishing and cruising on the lakes, or astronomy and birdwatching. Chile has all this packed into a narrow strip of land between Patagonia in the south, Peru to the north and Argentina to the east and offers some of the most spectacular scenery in the world alongside a rich culinary and cultural history.
This fascinating journey takes us from the cosmopolitan city of Santiago to Chilean Patagonia, one of the most incredible places on earth. Pristine beauty, bracing fresh air, spectacular walking and quintessential ecotourism make this a perfect destination for those who have a love for wilderness and nature. With great food and wine, fantastic guided walks and exquisite accommodation, the Patagonian experience is nature tourism heaven. We travel on to the stunning lakes district where we visit the Chiloe archipelago, made up of 30 islands revealing amazing natural beauty, rich mythology and unique cultural traditions. After three nights immersed in this sensational region we travel north to the remote Atacama Desert, where flamingos tread gracefully on salt flats, flowering cactus line water filled gorges and the ever present backdrop of the snow capped Andes make this driest place on earth a fascinating destination.
Unique accommodation in each location, innovative and traditional cuisine and the opportunity for daily excursions with experienced guides, this small group luxury tour in Chile will deliver an intimate interlude with nature, culture and history.
