Our recommended activities and highlights

Explore life on Mars
Atacama Desert

Explore life on Mars

Catch sunset (or sunrise) over Valle de la Luna, photograph pink flamingos contrasting against the deep blue Atacama sky, witness geysers angrily erupting, or just warm your bones in idyllic thermal springs.

Meander the Lakes District
The Lakes District

Meander the Lakes District

As distinctive for its conical volcanoes as its shimmering lakes, this region of central Chile and Argentina offers accessible and easy-going hiking with spectacular views, quiet villages and a laid back pace of life.

Hiking Torres del Paine
Torres del Paine National Park

Hiking Torres del Paine

Chile’s Torres del Paine National Park is renowned for its trekking and hiking, with excellent infrastructure for day hikes and multi-day treks. While the popular W and Circuit treks steal all the glory, other lesser-trafficked routes are available.

Birdwatching in Patagonia
Torres del Paine National Park

Birdwatching in Patagonia

What Patagonia lacks in megafauna it more than makes up for in rare bird life. There are Magellanic penguins on the Valdes Peninsula, Andean Condors soaring above Torres del Paine, flamingos in Tierra del Fuego, and much more everywhere else. Bring your binoculars!

Cultural Santiago

Cultural Santiago

Not as unruly as other Latin American capitals, what Santiago lacks in boisterousness it more than makes up for with understated charm. Take a couple of days to explore the city’s museums, galleries and restaurants for an inside view on contemporary Chilean culture.
