The eternal constants of Chile; the young Andes mountains and the interminable coastline, are located on opposite sides of the country. They keep their incredible secrets close, whispering them only to the wind.

The Andes Mountains, with their volcanoes, lakes and impressive valleys, contains jaw-dropping landscapes, huge peaks to conquer and volcanoes, sizzling with sulphur. The Coastal Mountain Range has beautiful natural oases, such as Palms of Ocoa National Park, and important mountains such as Cerro Roble, where you can see the ocean and the Andes Mountains at the same time.

Nestled between mountain ranges and rivers and in the middle of our great nation, we find the Central Valleys, the most fertile lands in the entire country.

These verdant valleys, abundant in vegetation, have sustained different cultures, such as the Mapuche, Aconcagua, and Diaguitas. One of these valleys went on to become Chile’s capital, the mighty Santiago, which is now one of South America’s most cosmopolitan cities with a thriving arts scene, world-class museums, historic barrios, and exceptional restaurants.

The other central valleys, such as Colchagua and Casablanca, are where most of Chile’s excellent wines are grown and produced, as well as other varieties of fruits and vegetables.

Overflowing with verdant forests, steaming volcanoes, and turquoise rivers and lakes, the Lakes District is the Chilean version of Shangri-La.

The Lakes District is one of the best places in Chile to enjoy outdoor sports due to the wide variety of landscapes, like white water rafting on glacier-fed rivers, fly-fishing, hiking through ancient forests or up the side of volcanoes, rock climbing, kayaking, wildlife sightseeing, and much more.

This region is also one of the best places in Chile to see evidence of how German immigrants in the 1800s brought their traditions and customs to their new home, with German-esque houses in quaint towns, German food like kuchen and sausage, and plenty of good craft beer!

Known as the end of the world, Patagonia invites you to explore the southernmost landscapes, towns, and cities on Earth.

Surrounded by mountains, forests, ice fields, islands, fjords and rivers, you can be assured that there is something for everyone. The Patagonian wilderness is home to, without a doubt, some of the most spectacular scenery that you will ever witness, such as Torres del Paine National Park, where you can experience an endless list of activities, including bird watching, seeing glaciers, sailing, trekking, climbing and kayaking.

The oldest cultures from the region were once nomads, known as Yaghans. These people traveled in canoes through the Straits of Magellan, carrying fire with them wherever they went. This is one of the reasons why the Darwin Mountain Range is also known as Tierra del Fuego (Land of Fire).
