Chile 2 canva

Mysterious moai and other-worldly landscapes

Chile is a place of pristine, other-worldly places that will make you feel as though you've been transported to a different planet. Down south lie the dramatic peaks of Patagonia, while the Atacama Desert could easily be mistaken for a Martian landscape. Off the Chilean coast is Rapa Nui (Easter Island) and its perplexing monoliths, the moai, statues that speak to the island's fascinating past.

At the same time, the grandeur of its landscapes contrasts with the friendliness of locals and the hospitality they offer travellers. Enjoy some maté tea or a glass of world-renowned Chilean wine with new friends. Slow down your pace and take your time to explore this country as it should be explored: with leisure. 

Our expert travel consultants can help you have the ultimate Chilean experience by tailoring an itinerary to suit your travel style and the type of adventures you want to have in this incredible destination.

Tips and advice from our travel advisors

Tipping is generally expected and will be added to your bill. Usually 10%. It should be clearly stated, if not then ask for clarification.
World Travellers
The official language is Spanish, although it's the Chilean version, not what you may have learned in school! English and German are also spoken but not widely.
World Travellers
For trekking enthusiasts, Torres del Paine national park in Patagonia is stunning. One of the best multi day walks is the Short W, as you go into the most scenic parts of the park and can sleep in refugios every night and not have to carry your own gear. Find a good tour company who can take care of the logistics as it can be tricky to do on your own.
