Here desert and sky become one amid a dance of all five senses, amid immense landscapes that defy the imagination. Explore the desert and its magic on horseback, mountain bike or by foot, ending your day with a soak in nearby thermal springs.
Santiago & Central Valleys
One of Latin America’s most vibrant cities, Santiago is a study in contrasts: it is home to colonial buildings and modern skyscrapers, close to not only top-notch ski resorts but sandy beaches as well. It is a traditional, friendly city that takes great pride in its order and lawfulness.
Lakes & Volcanoes District
A land of blues and greens, of granite greys and windswept whites. The south of Chile is an artist’s palette of colours and an explorer’s dream of wilderness and outdoor pursuits. Here you find excellent infrastructure making for easy exploration from a number of springboard towns.
Towering mountains, ageless glaciers, crisp blue lakes and vast stretches of untamed land: Chilean Patagonia is a paradise for all lovers of the great outdoors. Active explorers will want to try kayaking, mountaineering, fishing, horseback riding, trekking and more.
The Chilean Antartica, last southern frontier of the world, is located 990 km away from Punta Arenas, and it is the most southern city of South American, Chile. The country is the entrance door to the white continent, either by air (from Punta Arenas, a 4 hr. flight in Twin Otter airplanes).
