Bordering Argentina, Chile is a narrow ribbon that extends from Peru to Patagonia, and is home to some of the world’s most spectacular scenery. One of the continent's most prosperous countries, Chile offers guests a unique combination of stunning wine country, incredible food and spectacular Andean landscapes and adventure. Experience the wildernesses of Patagonia and Easter Island, the rich wine regions of the central valley, the lunar landscapes of the Atacama Desert or the granite spires and glaciers of world-famous Torres del Paine National Park. Superb opportunities for horse riding, walking, skiing, fly-fishing and off-the-beaten-path exploration exist, and Chile truly offers something to captivate the imagination of everyone, whatever their age. Scott Dunn’s highlights for Chile:
- Be sure to visit Torres del Paine National Park in the far south for its huge granite spires, jade-coloured lakes and Patagonian wildlife.
- Easter Island, 3000 miles off the coast of Chile, has mysterious Moai statues, volcanic craters and a unique culture unlike anywhere else on Earth.
- Get adventurous in the Atacama Desert and explore the unearthly high desert landscapes with their saltpans, flamingos in their thousands, and remote Indian villages.
