Chile - a rich diversity of landscapes
Over 2600 miles (4200 km) long, and barely 40 miles (64 km) wide at its narrowest point, Chile is a contrast in extremes.
The northern stretches of the country are marked by arid desert bordering Peru and Bolivia, while the southern region forms the heart of rugged Patagonia, down to the southernmost tip of the South American continent. To the west lies the vast Pacific Ocean, while the might Andes Mountains form the border with Argentina to the east. Central Chile is dominated by rich agricultural lands, including bucolic valleys filled with scenic vineyards.
Chile is the ideal country for those who seek to experience nature at her wildest and most diverse. Alpine peaks, deserts, glaciers, temperate rainforests, sapphire lakes and inland seas are just some of the spectacular scenery that awaits travelers as they traverse the country.

The Lakes District
Spanning approximately 200 miles from Pucón to Puerto Varas, Chile’s Lakes District and Chiloé Archipelago provide an opportunity to explore temperate rain forests, alpine forests, dramatic volcanoes, tranquil streams, thundering waterfalls, and inland seas. This is Chile’s multi-sport epicenter, where you can go white-water rafting or enjoy tranquil kayaking, hike volcanic peaks or dense temperate rainforest. Go horseback riding, mountain biking or fly-fishing. Or, if you need a little down time, simply soak up the stunning scenery.
A selection of 5-star lodges and hotels provide outstanding cuisine to fuel your adventure and unparalleled comfort to recharge you for the following day.
Rugged, windswept and wild, no trip to Patagonia is complete without seeing the magnificent Paine massif which dominates the landscape of Torres del Paine National Park. The park takes its name from the three spectacular granite spires that make up the eastern face of the mountain range. The southern face contains two further towers, resembling horns or “cuernos”.
Visitors come to Torres del Paine to hike several iconic trails which collectively are known as “The W” for the shape it resembles. Non-hikers come to marvel at the spectacular scenery, observe wildlife such as guanacos, foxes, condors and possibly a puma if you’re lucky. In addition to hiking, there are opportunities to enjoy horseback riding, more leisurely walks, and a visit to a working ranch.
Extraordinary lodges, each with comprehensive activities provide luxurious accommodations and sumptuous dining experiences to fuel your daily adventures. Torres del Paine lodges »
