Chile - Globe Guide


Chile's beauty lies in its breathtaking diversity, from the arid vastness of the Atacama Desert to the pristine landscapes of Patagonia where waterfalls, glaciers and dazzling lakes create a breathtaking panorama.

The dynamic capital Santiago is framed by the Andes, and historic Plaza de Armas, the vibrant neighborhood of Bellavista and the soaring Sky Costanera (the tallest skyscraper in South America) offer a taste of Chilean urban life.

Escape the hustle and bustle of city life by taking a day trip to Cajon del Maipo, where hiking trails and natural hot springs await. Head to the coastal jewel of Valparaiso, a UNESCO World Heritage site famed for its colourful hillside houses, vibrant street art and bohemian atmosphere, and enjoy wine tasting in the neighbouring Casablanca region.

Journey south to Patagonia, a pristine wilderness where jagged peaks, glaciers and turquoise lakes await. The W Trek and O Circuit in Torres del Paine National Park are among the world's most iconic hikes (here's what to pack), where the towering granite spires and vast landscapes create a breathtaking backdrop.

Those in search of sun will want to head to the other-worldly Atacama Desert, which is one of the driest places on earth. Home to surreal salt flats, vibrant pink flamingo-filled lagoons and the Valle de la Luna (Valley of the Moon), it showcases unique geological formations and celestial wonders, making it a top destination for stargazing enthusiasts from around the globe.

Don't miss a trip to Rapa Nui: while it takes some effort to get to Easter Island and there are some details you'll want to know about ahead of time, the reward is Polynesian culture, sweeping coastlines and those mysterious Moai, making this world’s most fascinating, off-the-beaten-path destinations.
