Chile Trips

Why travel solo to Chile?

Stretching from Peru and Bolivia to the southernmost tip of South America, Chile is one of the longest and most naturally diverse countries on earth: an adventurer’s dream.

Fringed by the Andes and a long ribbon of Pacific coastline, Chile spans fertile valleys, cracked deserts and the glacial hinterland of Patagonia.

Santiago beckons with its towering skyline and snow-capped vistas. Valparaiso brims with old-world charm and expansive Pacific views. The Atacama Desert, the driest on earth, is officially the closest you’ll get to Mars. And Patagonia? A landscape of such staggering beauty, it needs to be seen to be believed.

We’re not exaggerating when we say this: Chile is like nowhere else on earth.

Top places to visit in Chile

Parque Nacional Torres del Paine

Located in Patagonia in the southernmost tip of Chile, this vast hinterland is characterised by aquamarine glaciers, snow-capped peaks and pristine lakes. From glacier hiking to kayaking and white-water rafting, the Patagonia experience promises wild adventure.

Valle de la luna

Rising from the arid Atacama Desert, the Valley of the Moon is a rugged lunar landscape of red peaks and caverns. It was also once used as the training ground for NASA’s Lunar Rover, a fact emphasising how otherworldly this terrain really is.

Santiago de Chile

Santiago is a lively metropolis of soaring skyscrapers, set against the snow-capped Andes. Here, the ultra-modern blends with the artistic and cosmopolitan, resulting in one of South America’s most vibrant capitals.

Valparaiso

This port city on the Pacific Coast brims with artistic charm, lined with colourful houses and vibrant street art. It’s most famously associated with poet Pablo Neruda, but all manner of poets, painters and philosophers have found a home here over the years.
