An experience at the end of the world

Discovering Chile is much more than a tour; it is an experience at the end of the world.

With territories in America, Antarctica and Oceania, Chile is one of the few countries able to offer such a variety of locations, climates and landscapes. From the driest desert in the world to the ancient glaciers of the far south, the traveler is exposed to a unique and moving experience between the Andes Mountain Range and the Pacific coast.

Mountains and volcanoes, extensive valleys that produce world-class wines, native forests, lakes, rivers and plains of exceptional colors are part of the scenes that frame the experience of a country of contrasts that is fully connected with its nature.

In addition to its capital, Santiago, which has earned a place in Latin America due to its cleanliness, order, modernity and security, Chile has five great historical places that have been declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO: the city and port of Valparaiso; Easter Island, with the Rapa Nui ethnicity; the saltpeter mines of Humberstone and Santa Laura; the Sewell Mining Camp, and the Churches of Chiloé.
