Chile vacations

Plan a tailor-made self-driving tour of Patagonia, explore the Atacama Desert or travel to Easter Island

Unfathomably long and topographically schizophrenic, home to both the highest, driest desert on Earth and the ice fields of Tierra del Fuego, Chile is a bewitching place of extremes. Collectively, our specialists have explored it head to toe. They’re brimming with ideas for your Chile tour and how you can best get to know this safe country — whether you’re intent on stargazing in the Elqui Valley, trekking in Torres del Paine, or viewing Polynesian-esque Easter Island’s moai.

For a total change of pace, we can suggest the most relaxing vineyard properties in Chile’s central wine regions, where you can while away a few days debating the merits of local cabernet sauvignons over carmeneres. Flying is compulsory if you wish to explore several regions during a vacation to Chile. Yet certain areas, such as the northern Lake District, lend themselves to driving, which our specialists can help you arrange.

What to do in Chile: our highlights guide

Chile is a land of geographical contrasts, from the arid Atacama Desert to the peaks and glaciers of Patagonia.
