The ultimate CHILE TOUR

A GRAND CHILE ADVENTURE

Sample itinerary – Atacama Desert, Rapa Nui, Patagonia, Wine Region


Chile is located along the western coast of the southern cone of South America, and is one of the longest and narrowest countries in the world, with broad cultural and climatic contrasts.


This extensive Ultimate Chile Tour can be tweaked and adjusted to best suit your travel needs. From the highlands to the unexplored southern territories of the end of the world, Chile invites you to live adventures in the middle of the driest desert in the world, and the mysteries of Rapa Nui (Easter Island), in front of thousand-year-old glaciers, waiting to be discovered or under the imposing Andes Mountains in the middle of the movement of modern cities such as Santiago.

We’ve designed this Chile Tour to best showcase the highlights of this amazing country. Diverse landscapes unfurl over a 4300km stretch: parched dunes, fertile valleys, volcanoes, ancient forests, clear rivers, massive glaciers, and fjords. A country of geographical extremes, Chile’s diversity is reflected both in its people and its gastronomy, which encompasses the tropical fruit of the far north as well as king crab from southern Patagonia.

Above all, visitors travel to Chile for its remote and shockingly gorgeous landscapes.
