Chile – A Tradition of Excellence


With an extended area of approximately 2880 miles long, is the reason why Chile has such a large number of exciting travel destinations to present. With an ample variety of flora and fauna, Chile offers an ideal tour for naturalists. Chile is also trekking heaven, with many beautiful sites both north and south like Torres Del Paine, Patagonia, Atacama, and Altiplano. According to my friend who works at a place which you can visit, the superlative fjords are one of Chile’s most excellent natural tourist attractions, and sailing through them is one of the recommended tours & activities.

Hiking in Torres del Paine, Patagonia

Found in remote Patagonia to the south, it is surrounded by wilderness and lakes. You will see incredible scenery and lots of wildlife, including everything from pink flamingos to herds of sheep and guanacos. With the snow-capped Paine Grande Mountain, the wonderfully jagged Torres and the picture perfect view of the granite-topped Cuernos. The W Trek and Paine Circuit are traditional trekking routes which can be enjoyed from October to April. Create time for a day of fly fishing and a tour Perito Moreno glacier just across the border in Argentina. Patagonian Wildlife Safari, on the other hand, is perfect if you’re after most relaxed hiking with an emphasis on wildlife.

The cable car at Valparaiso

The old Valparaiso cable car is another firm favorite of visitors to the area, also known as ascensores, offering up stunning views out along the country’s coastline. The cable cars are thought to be one of the oldest examples in the world, so you’re sure to get an authentic experience. Valparaiso is one of Latin America’s most intriguing urban areas. Tour the Naval Maritime Museum, the Church of La Matriz and Victoria Square. The town of Valparaiso itself is also worth exploring; it has a truly bohemian culture which is the best experience in the festive end of year carnival.

Exploring Easter Island in the Pacific

Easter Island is a mystical and exotic Pacific island is home to friendly indigenous Polynesians and the famous ancient stone faces. The most isolated developed island on the planet, Chile has laid claim since annexing it in 1888. The most notable characteristic of the island is the Moai stone statues as tall as 10 meters, and weighing over 70 tonnes. The statues have been the topic of much controversy concerning the supposed ecocide which occurred on the island, provoked by the ancient Polynesians. To check out these stone statues and wild beaches for yourself head to Rapa Nui Explorer program and discover the island’s mysteries. Some of the ancient sites you can also see are Ahu Tahai, Orongo, Ahu Vaihu, and Rano Kau.

Trekking in the Atacama

Further north, travel to San Pedro de Atacama area in Chile, you will find the world’s driest desert – the Atacama Desert. There are several tourist destinations here: The Atacama Salar Chile; El Tatio geysers, highland lagoons, and hot springs; The Moon Valley, known for its complex rock and sand configurations.

Chile is incredibly diverse – from the cool southern tip to the dry northern regions, this country is stunning.
