The Atacama Desert, colorful Valparaíso, the vineyards of Maipo, the magnificent peaks of Torres del Paine and the mysterious Easter Island. Discover Chile…
A magical land of discovery
INTRODUCTION TO CHILE
The coastline of Chile stretches some 2,700 miles along the Pacific seaboard of Latin America. That’s equivalent to a road trip from frozen Anchorage Alaska to the sunny climes of northern California. A veritable kaleidoscope of natural and geographical diversity encompassing all and sundry, from the driest place on earth to the shores of frigid Antarctica. Superlatives abound in venturing to the wilds; living the geysers of the Atacama Desert, the enigma of Easter Island, cloistered wineries of Colchagua, foreboding volcanoes of the Lake District, secluded Mapuche Indian territories or indeed the Fuegian lands of fire at Patagonia. Increasingly, travellers seek to escape the omnipresent noise and connectedness of our modern world. Chile is the perfect natural antidote to rekindle a world at times contemplated as forever lost from us. Opportunities are boundless, come create your very own nomadic journey in mother nature’s theatre of dreams…. Chile.
Chile is a long thin country that encompasses the arid Atacama Desert in the north to the rolling vineyards in the central region to the icy cold glacier filled lakes of Patagonia in the south. Picking the best to travel depends largely on which part of the country you’ll visit. Northern Chile (San Pedro de Atacama) can be visited all year round. Due to its high elevation it is not as hot as you might think, with daily temperatures averaging 70 – 80 Deg F (22 – 27 Dec C). Go prepared with a sweater as night time temperatures can drop to freezing. Easter Island can be visited all year round and has moderate daily temperatures kept cool by the constant sea breeze. Santiago and Central Chile has a Mediterranean climate and is accessible all year round. In Spring, the region becomes beautifully green, whilst summers are very pleasant with 12 hours of sunshine guaranteed. Southern Chile & Patagonia is best visited during the summer months December – April, when daily temperatures are higher making the region more accessible.
