Like a long, tasty sliver cut from the side of South America, Chile´s extraordinary shape gives it an almost unequalled diversity and accessibility. Creepy ghost towns, majestic peaks and fantastic wine; it's all 'on the way'.Grab your pack - you´re going to Chile.
Like a long, tasty sliver cut from the side of South America, Chile´s extraordinary shape gives it an almost unequalled diversity and accessibility. From northern ghost towns in the world´s driest desert, to the glorious peaks of the Torres del Paine national park in the south; everything is 'on the way'.
Whether in search of the ultimate road trip, down Patagonia´s remote Carretera Austral; some of the world´s finest wines in sophisticated Santiago; or, spiritual realisation (and UFOs) in the New Age home of the Elqui Valley; Chile spoils for choice. As if that wasn't enough, Chile also boasts a dramatic history, fine literature and an amazingly friendly people. If you're looking to pendulum between silent solitude and mad nights, adrenaline rushes and tranquil meditation look no further than this narrow beauty of a country.
Add easy and cushy travel to the equation and this one really is a no brainer. Grab your pack; throw in a book of Neruda´s poems, a taste for wine, and a love for the outdoors - you´re going to Chile.
