Chile travel

Eco-tourism

Landscapes with a unique and pristine beauty bring life to ecosystems that have abundant biodiversities. Come and enjoy constant contact with nature, be amazed by each native setting and patiently observe Chile’s endemic species. Travel to some of the country’s main national parks and reserves to have an experience of complete respect for the environment and ancient cultures.

Visit the Pan de Azúcar National Park in the north of Chile. You’ll be able to see native species as well as go kayaking or biking during the summer. The campsites and cottages will let you rest up and the small restaurants, offering local produce, will help you recharge your batteries.

In Chile’s central area, explore the La Campana National Park, a declared Biosphere Reserve, which has campsites as well as interpretative trails. A bit further south, you can visit the Radal Siete Tazas National Reserve, which will amaze you with the natural water show of the Claro River.

Don’t miss out on the Villarrica National Park where you’ll see Andean lakes, snow-capped volcanoes and araucarias, or enjoy the thrill of adventure at the Vicente Pérez National Park, which will fascinate you with its rapids, where rafting is ideal. In Patagonia, trek around the trails of the Torres del Paine National Park, and sail along Grey Lake. You won’t regret it!
