Travel to Chile

Chile is 2,700 miles in length, spanning a huge variety of landscapes and regional cultures. The Andes run the length of the country, forming its border with Argentina. In the north, landscapes vary between the desolate Atacama Desert, the country’s modern capital of Santiago and Chile’s famous wineries. Further south, encounter northern Patagonia’s Lake District. Even deeper south, the land begins to break apart into thousands of islands and fjords, peaks and glaciers. This is Southern Patagonia Chile, home to world-renowned Torres del Paine Park.
