To travel the length of Chile is to enjoy a procession of different – and often contrasting – experiences.

From the colourful markets, interesting museums and lively streets of the capital, Santiago, you’ll find yourself travelling to the arid dryness of the Atacama region with its fierce deserts, dazzling salt flats, active geysers and dramatic beauty.

From the desert you’ll journey to tranquil lakes, wildlife and Pacific beaches around Puerto Varas, before flying into the Punta Arenas for a camping experience in Torres del Paine National Park. And the culmination of your Chilean adventure will be relaxing at an organic winery deep in the heart of the Rosario Valley.

 

This is a sample itinerary to inspire your holiday – it can be tweaked in every way possible from the places you want to go to and number of days you spend in each, as well as hotels you stay in and activities you do.

  • Although we bothered Lydia on several occasions over small matters, she was always patient and very helpful. The whole organisation from Heathrow and back was seamless and first class. Game watching on this trip surpassed all that we had seen before in the one trip. Our thanks to Ultimate yet again
