Chile is a country of startling contrasts and extreme beauty, with a range of geographical attractions for anyone who is fascinated with this subject. Stretching long and thin, extending between the high Andes and Pacific Ocean, Chile covers a vastly diverse array of terrain. It is home to some of the world's most spectacular scenery and offers a unique combination of beautiful wine regions, diverse cultures, stunning landscapes and adventure.
Experience the vibrant capital of Chile, Santiago, the port town and the UNESCO World Heritage site of Valparaiso, rich wine regions of the central valley, spectacular lunar landscapes of the Atacama Desert, the breathtaking Lakes District, the mysterious Moai Statues on Easter Island and the huge granite spires and jade coloured lakes of Torres del Paine National Park in Patagonia. Chile truey offers something to captivate the imagination.
The diverse climate of Chile ranges from the world's driest desert in the north - the Atacama Desert - through a Mediterranean climate in the center, humid subtropical in Easter Island, to an oceanic climate, including alpine tundra and glaciers in the east and south. There are four seasons in most of the country: summer (Dec to Feb), autumn (Mar to May), winter (Jun to Aug), and spring (Sep to Nov).
Best time to travel: Nov - Mar (next best: Apr - Sep)
