A Chile Adventure!
Topographically diverse and running 2,700 miles along the West Coast of Latin America from Peru to the Drake Passage, Chile is an adventure traveler’s playground. Gourmet cuisine abounds, and easy access to the Pacific provides an impressive array of seafood. World-famous wines, such as Chile’s signature Carmenere, originate here (and debatably the Pisco Sour) and wine country is close to Santiago. From the driest desert in the world, the Atacama, to the far-flung and sub tropical Rapa Nui (Easter Island), Chile is home to at least seven major climatic subtypes. Activities in Chile include white water rafting, kayaking, hiking, canyoning, skiing, alpine trekking and mountaineering, wildlife viewing, birding and a variety of family-friendly adventures. Cultural experiences in Chile are focused around traditional lifestyles such as those on Chiloe island and interactions with the Patagonian gauchos (cowboys). Accommodations range from luxurious urban hotels such as the Ritz Carlton in Santiago to unique tented camps and lodges in Patagonia.
