“The Best of Chile trip was one of the most amazing trips we've ever taken! We visited breath-taking places, experienced the local culture, met some of the friendliest people and enjoyed the unique cuisine that Chile had to offer. We would definitely come back!”

  • Please ensure you consult your local government’s advice regarding domestic travel prior to booking this trip.
  • This trip is new to our range this year. And while we have thoroughly researched every detail of the logistics, new destinations can sometimes throw us some unexpected surprises. More often than not, it’ll be a great surprise. But every now and again there might be a hiccup. We like to think that’s what puts the ‘adventure’ in ‘adventure travel’.
  • The weather in this part of the world can be unpredictable, even in the dry season, so be sure to pack for all conditions!
  • Walks indicated in the day-by-day itinerary are our best pick, but we may need to change them sometimes depending on the track and weather conditions.
