Stretching 2400km, from the arid Atacama Desert in the north to the alpine tundra of Patagonia in the far south, Chile is the spine of South America. Here almost every possible geographic feature is squeezed impressively into an undulating ribbon of land less than 200km wide, flanked in the east by the majestic Andes mountain range and in the west by the Pacific Ocean.
A country of soaring volcanic peaks and vast salt flats, of rich forests and barren deserts, of rushing rivers and slow-moving glaciers tumbling into twisting fjords and inlets. It is a land of adventure, just waiting to be explored.
Despite its extraordinary length, a carefully crafted journey will maximise the impact of Chile’s diversity, as you find yourself gazing at the star-filled cosmos over the Atacama one day, and hiking into the Patagonian wilderness the next.
