Stretching almost half the length of South America, Chile is home to both the driest desert in the world and to vast, spectacular glacier fields. And with one side of the country dominated by the Andes Mountains and the other by dramatic Pacific coastline, this is a country that not only offers some of the most outstanding, awe-inspiring and varied landscapes in the world, but it's one that has something to offer every taste and budget too, making it a country with all the ingredients for a truly fantastic holiday.
From the cosmopolitan capital Santiago to the scorched Atacama Desert, the crystal clear lakes of Puerto Varas and the dramatic mountains of Torres del Paine National Park in Patagonia, the highlights of this country are as varied as they are spectacular. But that's just scratching the surface. You can also fly west of the mainland to the mysterious Easter Island – a beautiful island shrouded in mysterious history, and arguably a jewel in Chile's crown. Or perhaps you'll want to satisfy your love of wine by touring the stunning wine country, take a road trip like no other along the Carretera Austral or hike through the exceptional beauty of the Lake District. One thing's for sure, wherever you go, this is a country guaranteed to amaze you.

Landscapes don't get more spectacular than the Torres del Paine National Park in the depths of Patagonia. Three huge granite towers dominate the landscape and the area is home to beautiful glaciers, snow-capped mountains and some amazing walking and mountain biking. Go to Torres del Paine >
When you set foot on the Atacama Desert you would be forgiven for thinking you have made it to the moon. The landscape is littered with red rock, lagoons, canyons and salt that glistens like diamonds. It's a complete contrast to southern Chile and we think it is a must-visit! Go to Atacama >
Santiago has had quite the facelift over recent years and it's well worth spending a few days in Chile's capital. Each district offers its own character and atmosphere, and there are plenty of green spaces to enjoy. Up San Cristóbal Hill, you will find superb views over the city. Go to Santiago >
Located a 5-hour flight west of the mainland, Easter Island offers a unique culture, compounded by its mysterious history. It’s also a beautiful island and arguably the jewel in Chile's crown.
The Chilean Lake District offers lush green forests, dramatic waterfalls and crystal-clear lakes against a backdrop of snow-capped Andes Mountains. The area is also well-known for several dramatic volcanoes that give the area a unique landscape. Go to Lakes >
Valparaíso is on the coast just a 90-minute drive from Santiago. The area has a vibrant art community with a wealth of galleries, and artwork that literally spills out onto the streets! There is a thriving gastronomy scene here, as well as an interesting history that makes the town well worth a visit. Go to Valparaíso >
