CHILE DESTINATION GUIDE
Long and skinny Chile stretches over half the South American continent. Extreme landscapes are found the length of the country, in the north is the world’s driest desert and in the south there are huge glacial fields. In between these there is almost every other natural wonder to be found including beaches, volcanoes, geysers, rivers, lush forests, beautiful vineyards and lakes.
Chile is often referred to as spindly as it snakes down the Pacific coast along the western slopes of the Andes. In the south there is the stunning lake district and the wilderness of Patagonia. In the central zone there is the fascinating old port of Valparaiso to visit, the cosmopolitan city of Santiago and the Maipo Valley wine region which is irrigated by the rivers running down from the Andes.
