CHILE

WHERE THE IMPOSSIBLE IS POSSIBLE
From the driest desert in the world up north to eternal glaciers and inverted waterfalls down south, Chile extends travelers an invitation that is hard to turn down.

Learn about tourism in Chile, and you will be amazed by all of the experiences you can find at the southern tip of the world.

Choose Chile. Where the impossible is possible. Space observation in the Atacama Desert, thousand-year-old glaciers in the far south, magical forests and lakes lying at the foot of extraordinary volcanoes. Islands full of legends, wine traditions, incredible challenges to take on, and the capital city of Santiago with its airs of modernity and accessibility.

An extensive territory with wide horizons that will make you feel alive, get you in touch with nature and invite you to explore pristine lands. A true test of your senses, where its people and culture will offer a pleasant surprise with their friendliness and hospitality. A completely new experience where the whales can fly, the desert yields flowers, and you can enjoy the four seasons of the year in a single day. A place where the impossible is possible.

Under a sky with infinite stars lies the world’s driest desert waiting for the anticipated blooming.

Central area, Santiago and Valparaiso

The south, its lakes and volcanoes
A magical place with traditions full of wisdom, where the living ecosystem grows and develops at its own natural pace.

Patagonia and Antarctica
Fjords and glaciers hidden among green landscapes that give way to the horizon that disappears at the end of the world.
