6 reasons to travel to Chile

Travellers who dream about going to South America, with its vast open areas and completely different culture don't immediately consider a trip to Chile. But the country is full of natural riches and absolutely fabulous scenery.

Discover another Patagonia

Argentina doesn't have a monopoly over Patagonia. Chile boasts the same wild ground, vast, unending stretches of land, glaciers and unspoilt nature. There's no doubt that you'll love it, given that this side of the border, it's less touristy.

Breath in the atmosphere of Chiloé.

Although less exotic than Easter Island, the island of Chiloé is no less mysterious. No coconut palms here, as it rains more than 300 days a year. Rather, there is superb architecture and a unique atmosphere woven from legends and ancestral beliefs. Another world to discover

Walk around in the most beautiful nature park in the world

Head to Easter Island.

East Island is the most isolated place on this earth. The atmosphere there is mystical and mysterious. The famous Moais are surrounded by legend. Everyone comes here to uncover the mystery of the incredible statues. But the island keeps its secret well, and therein lies its charm. Without doubt, a visit to Easter Island will number as one of the most beautiful holidays of your life.

Stroll around Valparaiso

Valparaiso is one of the most beautiful port towns in the world. Stroll along its streets at random or walk around the open-air museum, where the fronts of the houses display their frescoes and bright colours. Take the world-famous lifts which overlook the bay and transport you to the incredible home of Pablo Neruda.

Travel to the Atacama desert

It's unthinkable to take a trip to Chilewithout visiting the desert. The most arid desert in the world, it's nonetheless full of natural riches. Volcanoes, geysers, lagoons, unique wildlife, lunar landscapes...miracles, at your fingertips! Fans of astronomy should be aware that here, the sky is more often than not cloudless at night. It's the ideal place for lying back and stargazing.
