Travel to Chile

Chile is one of the few final frontiers that we still have on our planet today. You’ll find rushing rivers, soaring peaks, and massive statutes are ready and waiting for your arrival right now. Chile also gives you access to one of the world’s great mysteries with Easter Island and their massive moai statutes.

Chile is stretching almost the entire length of the South American continent and is wedged between the intimidating Andes Mountains and the Pacific Ocean, it is a country rich in natural beauty, culture and heritage.

The most fascinating aspect about Chile is its geography. Although the country stretches over 4.500 km from north to south, making it the longest country in the world, it is only 425 km at its widest point, east to west. The country offers an amazing landscape, ranging from a chain of volcanoes in the Andes to freezing glaciers, fjords, inlets and islands.

Since the country spans over 30o of latitudes, it experiences some dramatic climatic variations. The northern region undergoes mild variations in climate and has little to no rainfall. The Central Chile region features more pronounced seasonal changes with some rainfall in the winter months. The southern part, stretching to the famous Strait of Magellan, is considerably cooler with more rainfall than the rest of the country.

Natural wonders are readily on display in Chile with its active volcanoes and massive mountain peaks. Yet there is also a certain beauty in places like Torres del Paine National Park, where you can explore glaciers and icebergs situated amongst granite monoliths.

Or you could experience the unique high desert landscapes that Chile offers. Communities like San Pedro de Atacama allow you to explore dramatic landscapes, enjoy hot springs, and explore local culture in a very unique way. Surfing, backpacking, and other adventures are all readily available, but so is the opportunity to kick back and relax on the beach.

There is a certain wine culture that can be found in Peru as well, despite the fact that the country is often described as a “land of extremes.” It is 4,300 kilometers in length, with the world’s driest desert and vast glacial fields, yet still it provides generational orchards and vineyards that produce wines for any occasion or mood.

Santiago, located in the center of the slender country, has been the capital city since the first European settlement was established there in 1541. Although Santiago is the capital city, the Congress is located in the nearby port city of Valparaiso.

Chile might be the bookend of South America, averaging just 175 kilometers in width, but this uniqueness is just part of its personality. It is a country that relates to you, helps you to relax, and makes you feel like you’re home.

The Chileans take pride in their tradition and culture and call their country Pais de Poetas, which means ‘Land of the Poets’.
