A long and skinny country, there’s a lot I can relate to about Chile!

One of the more expensive destinations to visit in South America, it’s hard to disregard this amazing country however thanks to the natural gems that lie within its border.

Santiago, the throbbing capital where the vast amount of the population live, is only worth a couple days of your time and many prefer to base themselves in the more bohemian and lowkey destination of Valparaíso nearby instead.

But it’s really outside of these places that Chile’s top travel treats lie.

To start with, the Atacama Desert in the north, which borders Bolivia’s famous Uyuni Salt Flats, is a photographer’s paradise thanks to its dry, high altitude plains and stunning light quality.

Down in the south of the country, it’s a different story as glaciers, mountains and fjords dominant in the mighty Patagonia.

From Puerto Natales to Punta Arenas, this huge land also boasts an amazing array of wildlife and some of the most dramatic scenery on earth, making it a bucket list spot for nature lovers and hikers alike.

Thankfully, direct flights to Santiago from across the globe make accessing Chile pretty easy, so if you’re considering an epic outdoors trip in South America, this is a great country to start with…
