The "Discover Chile" trip starts and ends in Santiago. It is a cultural, religious and historic sites tour that takes 13 days taking you through Santiago, Puerto Natales and Puerto Varas in Chile. "Discover Chile" is a guided small group trip that includes accommodation in hotels, transport, meals and others.

Chile’s narrow coastal strip stretches for 2,670mi (4,300km) and is dominated by the towering peaks of the Andes. Covering over half the length of South America, Chile has an unparalleled range of environments, from the highest, driest desert in the world, the dramatic Atacama, with its geysers and salt flats, to the fertile valleys and vineyards of central Chile. To the south lies the Lake District with picturesque, snow-capped volcanoes, deep-blue lakes and gushing waterfalls. Further south still, we reach Patagonia, a land of ice fields, mountains, glaciers and immense solitude.
