Chile travel

Culture

Chile’s cultural roots are as diverse as its landscapes, and have shaped the uniquely Chilean identity. Spend time with the indigenous peoples and experience their traditions! Discover unique archaeological relics and explore the country’s history in its many museums.

Immerse yourself in the ways of the northern Altiplano (highland) villages to learn more about the Aymara people and their traditions.
Discover the spirited Mapuche people of the central and southern heartlands, where you can sleep in a ruca, sample their traditional dishes and learn about the curative properties of the medicinal plants widely grown to this day.

On Easter Island, visit the enigmatic moai and rub shoulders with the Rapa Nui way of life.

Listen to the legends of the storytellers on Chiloé and visit the island’s famous churches, 16 of which have been declared UNESCO World Heritage Sites.

And don’t miss the traditional festivals throughout the country! You will be warmly welcomed at the grape harvest fiestas in the central wine-growing regions, the festival of La Tirana in the Atacama desert and the splendid Con la Fuerza del Sol carnival in the north.

@Wanderlust Chloe

Valpo to its locals, Valparaiso to the masses. and a mouthful for tourists to pronounce (here goes nothing “Valpar-aa-eeee-so”)… Whatever you choose to call it, you’re guaranteed to come away agreeing Valpariso is a beautiful, vibrant mess.
