Ethereal landscapes, mystical ancient history, captivating cities and open-air adventure.

Come face-to-face with the iconic Moai on Easter Island

Chile is undoubtedly one of the most beautiful countries in the world. On a map, it appears as a long, pinched sliver of land, carved out on the edge of the South American continent, yet it holds some of the planet’s greatest natural treasures.

The country’s average width is just 175 kilometres, yet its length spans 4,300 kilometres, the equivalent of Norway to Egypt or the entire length of the USA.

Chile’s bizarre shape is just the first mind-boggling element of the country. In this land of extremes, you’ll encounter diverse cultures living in peaceful co-existence, and cross through at least seven major climate types.

From the driest desert in the world to the frozen glacial landscapes, and from the subtropical Pacific Ocean to the Chilean Lake District and the Mediterranean wine region, Chile is a natural wonderland.

In Northern Chile, you’ll find the Atacama Desert, a vast moonscape stretching for 1,000 kilometres, with ancient volcanoes, sparkling salt flats, and some of the clearest night skies in the world.

Head to the centre of the country to the capital of Santiago, Valparaíso and Casablanca, and you’ll relish the balmy Mediterranean climate, with world-class wineries and rich history.

In the east, the Andes mountains act as a formidable border between Argentina, and you’ll uncover a remote wilderness, barely touched by humans. The Aysén Region is peppered with natural gems, including colossal glaciers, archaeological sites and ancient lakes.

Make the short journey to the west, and you’ll be met by the Pacific Ocean, where a coastline of stunning beaches provides relief from the humid, tropical climate.

Fly even further west, and you’ll discover Easter Island (Rapa Nui), an enchanting drop in the ocean, home to the mystical moai statues of the Rapa Nui people, the island’s native Polynesian inhabitants.

Venture south and you’ll feel like you’ve entered a different world again. Marvel at the rolling pastoral landscapes and incredible wildlife encounters of Chiloe Island and Chile's Lake District, then head further south to the extraordinary glacial paradise of Patagonia.

From Puerto Natales to Torres del Paine, the Patagonian people bring the buena onda (good vibes), and the landscapes simply blow you away. Whether you're embarking on an adventure holiday, a wildlife holiday, or a luxury honeymoon, you'll stay in the country's most luxurious hotels. From Explora Patagonia to Alto Atacama, you'll experience the ultimate luxury on your holiday to Chile.
