huge open spaces, outdoor adventures, the atacama desert, majestical fjords
A long, narrow ribbon squeezed between the Andes and the Pacific, and stretching from the spectacular desolation of the Atacama desert to the calm beauty of the lakes and the wild drama of Patagonia’s steppes, fjords, glaciers and mountains, Chile is a series of dramatic and startlingly different landscapes. And then, perhaps even more startling is Easter Island – Rapa-Nui – caught in a time-warp five hours’ flight away in mid-Pacific.
For true outdoor adventure, we work with highly professional local outfitters who can access the most spectacular wilderness and provide the most expert hiking, riding and fishing guides. For greater luxury, we have found the best of the estancias and the chic new lodges that dot both the wine country and more remote areas. Chile’s airline, which runs a good, regular service up and down the length of the country, means that you can take in all of its huge variety in the same holiday.
