Cherished every moment
5 - Excellent
  • Anonymous
“Probably how these expeditions work, but I found the trip quite memorable - the right balance of getting to know and learn about wildlife, marine flora fauna, geology, history & geography, culture of the people in the ship, and adventure with fun. Cherishing every moment here. Not only had the best times in exploring the unknowns but also found the time to reflect within.”
Little else to say but THANKS
5 - Excellent
  • Matteo Negro
“"We have little else to say but THANKS for all of your help during the organization of our trip to Argentina, Uruguay and Chile. It has been an amazing experience for us all the way through and your ceaseless support has been truly paramount for us. We found an excellent level of service with you and everything was super smooth.”
A wonderful trip
5 - Excellent
  • Catherine
“My favourite destination was El Calafate. I loved the little town. My hotel was upgraded and the excursions to Perito Moreno and Torres Del Paine day trips were excellent. My favourite hotel was Mirador Del Lago in El Calafate. Very good service at both hotels. The meals in the restaurants were delicious. The facilities and location was also very good and suited my needs About the excrsion, it is hard to choose between Perito Moreno & Iguasu day trips. Both were excellent. But the organisation in El Calafate was probably the better out of the two. Guides, They were all pretty good. Thanks again!”

Chile - Tour Highlights and Travel Tips

Finding adventure, diversity, and closeness to nature are the three pillars of a trip to Chile. Chile is one of the few countries where you would actually want to take a wrong turn because you never know where it might take you—a hidden oasis that few tourists have ever discovered. 

The unique configuration of Chile's mountains and sea ensures that it offers some of the clearest night skies in the world. You will have the ideal place to spend long nights cuddled up next to your special someone, stargazing and naming stars as you take in the breathtaking natural beauty. A 3700-year-old tree is located in the Torres del Paine National Park, one of many national parks in Chile. Other sights to see are Moon Valley in the Atacama Desert and the strange stone statues on Easter Island. In conclusion, taking a tour of Chile is an experience you won't soon forget.

Tour Highlights

  • See the Moai on Easter Island
  • Drive through the Atacama Desert
  • Take in the view of Santiago from San Cristóbal Hill
  • Explore the blue glaciers of Torres del Paine National Park
  • Visit the end of the world in Tierra del Fuego
  • Take a selfie with a Guanaco

Travel Tips

  • There are hot deserts and beaches in Chile, but there are also mountains and glaciers. For a holiday in Chile, pack for all types of weather and try to dress in layers for long days out.
  • Many bank machines in Chile will not accept foreign bank cards. Do your research before the trip to find out which banks will work for you, and be sure to exchange money before you travel.
  • Colourful Chilean sunrises and sunsets are some of the most beautiful in the world. Take some siestas during the day so you get to experience both.
  • When dining in Chile, be prepared to eat slightly later than you are used to. Lunch in typically served around 2pm, while dinner is not eaten until anywhere from 8pm to 10pm. Chileans also have a snack time called 'once' - a light dinner of hot drinks and cakes. Chile is rich in food culture, so know what you must not miss to eat in Chile.
  • Earthquakes are very common in Chile, but there's no need to be alarmed. While you may feel a tremor or two during your visit, the country is built to withstand even large earthquakes.

Chile tours — Top destinations to visit

  • Tour the Patagonian Fjords and glaciers: Patagonia is a breathtakingly beautiful region. In addition to hiking and trekking trails in parks like Torres del Paine, it is home to mountains, glaciers, rivers, and lakes. It has a land area of roughly 1,000,000 square kilometers and extends across Chile and Argentina in the southernmost regions of South America. You can travel to Patagonia on a small ship, stopping at some of the world's most southerly cities along the way and possibly even landing at Cape Horn, the geographical "end of the earth" that marks the continent's southernmost point. Visitors can expect a lot from Patagonia, which stretches from the farthest northern reaches of its Lake District to its farthest southern point in Tierra del Fuego.
  • Discover the cosmopolitan Santiago: Located in the Maipo Valley, bordered by the Pacific Ocean to the west and the snowy Andes to the east, Santiago enthralls visitors with its breathtaking vistas, neoclassical architecture, and inventive cuisine. Explore Santiago's thriving neighborhoods by dining in the Barrio Italia, shopping with style-conscious Santiguenos in Bellavista, or taking in the view from Santa Lucia Hill. After that, stroll around Plaza de Armas to see the Metropolitan Cathedral or the Chilean Museum of Pre-Columbian Art's exhibit of Pre-Columbian antiquities. Experience the vibrant nightlife scenes of Barrios, Brazil, and Lastarria. With a burgeoning economy, revitalized arts exhibits, and plenty of exhilarating activities, Santiago is an old-guard city on the edge of a contemporary reawakening.
  • Explore the distinct landscapes of the Atacama Desert: Travel to the Atacama Desert the driest desert on earth, is far from lifeless. Rather, it is a region brimming with energy thanks to its hospitable indigenous cultures and the oases that provide life in the desert. Ascend the Andean Altiplano's more than 4,000 meters in elevation to discover tiny towns that uphold their traditions amidst breathtaking scenery. Discover unique landscapes in San Pedro de Atacama, which include deep blue lagoons, geysers, and salt flats. Also, stop by one of the many astronomical observatories in the Elqui Valley.
  • Mingle with wildlife in Torres del Paine National Park: Prepare your hiking supplies and set out to explore the sizable Torres del Paine National Park. While the Las Torres and French Valley rank among the best day hikes in the world, the W and O Treks are among the best multi-day hikes in Chilean Patagonia. Navigate Lake Gray while keeping an eye out for foxes, huemuls, and guanacos, or be patient and wait for the majestic puma to make its showy entrance. Torres del Paine is one of those wonderful places that you do not get to visit every day. It is home to four distinct ecological zones, including the Andean Desert, Magellanic Subpolar Forest, Pre-Andean Shrubland, and Patagonian Steppe.
  • Unveil the hidden adventures of Puerto Natales: The tranquil seaside community of Puerto Natales, which serves as the entrance to Torres del Paine National Park, has gained appeal among those travelers seeking breathtaking and amazing adventures while taking in the slow-paced eclectic local way of life, varied history, and distinct culture of Southern Patagonia. Get a closer view of Serrano and Balmaceda glaciers by taking a catamaran tour of Última Esperanza Sound. Go kayaking in Bernardo O'Higgins National Park, examine countless fossils in Milodon Caves; and enjoy horseback riding on the Sierra Dorotea Trail.

Peak season and low season tours in Chile

  • Peak season tours in Chile: The peak season to visit Chile is between December and February when the pleasant weather beckons travelers for outdoor ventures and beach getaways. Summer is the best time to visit Chile to explore the country’s well-known sights, including Torres del Paine National Park in Patagonia and La Moneda Palace in Santiago. The famous Tapati Rapa Nui event, which honors Easter Island culture, also takes place during the summer.     
  • Low season tours in Chile: Low season in Chile falls between June and August, when the nights can be freezing, even in the Atacama Desert. This is not the ideal time to travel to Chile unless you intend to go skiing or snowboarding. Winter is an excellent season to go down the Carretera Austral and experience Chilean Patagonia's northernmost regions.

Tours in Chile - Questions and Answers

  • How many days do you need in Chile?

    We recommend, at the very least, a 2-weeks tour of Chile to explore the blue glaciers and emerald forests of Torres del Paine, the enticing landscapes of the Atacama desert, and similar must-see destinations. You will be left with enough time to add a few more delightful places like capital Santiago, Valparaiso, and one or two world-class vineyards. A three-week tour will allow you to linger longer in all your favorite places. But if you have only 5 to 7 days, it’s best to focus on Santiago, the nearby colorful towns, and the wine valleys. Add a few more days, and you can squeeze in Patagonia, Atacama, Easter Island, or the Osorno and Calbuco volcanoes. To get more details on how many days to spend in Chile, see here.

  • Is Chile cheap for tourists?

    Chile is not the cheapest place to visit in South America. But the kind of trip you have in mind will determine your budget. Typically, most tourists like to hike in the Torres del Paine and explore the desert landscape of Atacama during a 10 to 15-day trip. It is possible to do a trekking-heavy trip on a budget of USD 90 to 100 per day per person. Basic accommodation and food costs are higher in Chile than in other South American countries. So be ready to spend at least USD 75 daily for a non-luxurious trip.

  • How do you get around in Chile?

    Chile is well connected from north to south via flights and buses. But it’s trickier to travel from east to west, and south of Puerto Montt because of the unusual landscape comprising glaciers and mountains. Long-distance buses are the best way to go up and down the country. For travelling to remote areas, you can hire your own car. Trains are useful only in certain parts, like Central Chile. You can also consider low-cost airlines: they are sometimes cheaper than long-distance buses—if you don’t mind missing out on the scenery on the way.

  • What is Chile best known for?

    Chile is best known for its diverse landscapes. It is home to incredible glaciers and fjords, the driest of deserts, superb rock formations, and ancient forests. Chilean hospitality is well known, and the people like to bond over maté tea. You’ll find buena onda (good vibes) wherever you go. The world has woken up to the exquisite taste of Chile’s wines. In fact, Latin America’s largest winegrower is in Chile’s countryside. Capital Santiago has some of the finest art galleries in South America like the Museo Nacional de Bellas Artes and the Museo Chileno de Arte Precolombino. Neighborhoods like Bellavista in Santiago and Concepción in Valparaíso have a very vibrant street-art culture. 

  • What is the typical food in Chile?

    Traditional Chilean cuisine is hearty and winsome, imbibing many European and South American influences. Some famous dishes include Plateada (soft-cut beef), Chorrillana (French fries with meat and seasoning); Empanada (baked or fried puff pastry with salty or sweet fillings), Pastel del choclo (a sort of shepherd’s pie made using corn mash), Pastel de jaiba (crab pie), Machas a la parmesana (a clam dish topped with cheese), and Completo (Chilean-style hot dog that is bigger than its American counterpart). And you must try Terremotos, a rather potent alcoholic drink, and the many excellent Chilean wines
