The geography of Chile can be described as extraordinary or stunning. In less than 200km, you descend from the snowy peaks of Andes to the Pacific Ocean.
Torres Del Paine National Park with its craggy peaks rising out from the rolling alpine plain is not to be missed. The Lake District around Puerto Varas is the centerpiece of pristine natural beauty of the country and up north in the snow-capped mountains is a dramatic contrast with the spectacular rugged desert. And there is more, the fjords in its southern coastline, the wine regions around the capital Santiago…The list goes on.
The trip starts from its capital Santiago before we fly north into Calama to experience the Atacama Desert. Then, we fly south to the Chilean Lake District, a lovely region of alpine lakes, pine-clad mountains and snow-capped volcanoes. Then, it is Torres Del Paine National Park, rated by many as the most scenic in the South America continent.
Straddling the two countries of Argentina and Chile, the Patagonia offers some of the most stunning sceneries– meandering glaciers, towering snow-capped volcanoes, glistening alpine lakes, pine-clad mountains. Great for soft adventurers who love the outdoors and the creature comforts of luxury lodges.
The Andes stretches along the South American continent from north to south, forming different faces of spectacular landscapes. From the colourful Calchqui Valley in northwestern Argentina to the world’s driest Atacama desert in Chile. From the wonders of Uyuni Salt Lake in Bolivia and end of the world’s highest capital city – La Paz.
