Chile’s long, slender silhouette stretches some 2,653 miles from the tropics of the north down into Patagonia and the icy fingertip of the continent. The country encompasses such diversity of geology and terrains that it holds a special appeal for nature lovers and adventurers.
Immense ice fields and glaciers combine with the surreal granite spires of Torres Del Paine in Patagonia. The driest spot on earth, the Atacama Desert is home to fantastic moon-like topography, geysers, sculpted dunes and flamingo lagoons. The dazzling lakes and snowcapped volcanoes of the Lake District; and the hot springs, glaciers and temperate forests of the Carretera Austral invite exploration.
The Magellan Strait opens to the wildlife lands of Tierra del Fuego and Cape Horn. Some 2,300 miles offshore await the mysteries of the giant stone heads, moais, of Easter Island.
Along with these stellar landscapes, Chile also boasts sophisticated cities such as its capital, Santiago. In a beautiful valley surrounded by snowy Andean peaks, the city is a wonderful base for exploring the country’s famous wine estates. Luxury Chile travel pleases the connoisseur – be that of wines or mountaintops.

“Everywhere I look when I see itineraries for Chile, I keep seeing the same four or five locations over and over. For quite some time, I felt that something more existed, an experience or interaction that not only showed me something new about Chile, it also met a personal requirement of mine regarding sustainability. Enter the Mapuche communities, one of the oldest indigenous cultures in a country. There is tremendous history in Chile dating back to the Incas and beyond that reaches beyond Chile’s tourist locations that everyone already visits. I am delighted to be able to take our guests off the track to see the real Chile.”
