Chile travel

Nature

Chile’s territory combines over 4,000 kilometers of wind-blown, ocean-swept coastline, the immense, mineral-rich northern desert, the majestic peaks of the Andes range, with thousands of active volcanoes strung along its length, and the hushed mystique of the southern evergreen forests. Come and experience the full glory of nature in Chile!

Visit the vast salt flats of the Atacama desert and the ice fields of Patagonia, passing through the fertile sun-soaked central valleys, famed World Biosphere Reserves and the myriad natural parks and reserves throughout the country.

Get away from it all and truly unwind in a remote desert oasis in the north of Chile, or revitalize your senses in rich southern landscapes filled with native species like the Araucaria pine.

Contemplate the immense Pacific ocean, swim in the cool waters of the calm southern lakes and absorb the invigorating energy of fast-moving Andean rivers. Breathe deeply in the purest air and delight in nature at its finest in Chile.

If you’re an animal lover, you’ll see well-known species in abundance and discover others that are simply unique to Chile. From the delicate miniature pudu deer through to giant cetaceans, Chile’s national parks and marine reserves are a veritable haven for fauna. Multiple species of flamingo and penguin, camelids like alpacas, guanacos and vicuñas and an infinite variety of small creatures will enliven your travels in Chile.
