With a length of 4,329 km (2700 miles), Chile is a land of geographical and climatic extremes, a territory of magnificent beauty. From the most arid desert in the world, the Atacama Desert to the fjords and glaciers of Patagonia, Chile offers indomitable nature as well as excellent services and infrastructure.
Santiago is one of Latin America's most modern metropolitan areas, with extensive suburban development and impressive high-rise architecture. The city is surrounded by a breathtaking Andes mountain range with first class sky resorts visited every winter.
The Atacama Desert, surrounded by the Andes mountains and the Pacific Ocean, is a place to discover archaeological treasures and ecological wealth. Highlights include the highest lake in the world, The Chungará, el Valle de la Luna, the salt plains of the Atacama, Tatio Geisers and Los Geoglifos.
Easter Island, known as the most remote inhabited island in the world, developed one of the most complex cultures in history in extreme conditions of isolation. The island is located in the eastern extreme of the Polynesian triangle at 3,700 km (2,294 miles) from the coast of Continental Chile. True reflections of its millenary traditions are the architectonic works and the "Moa" (massive megalithic sculptures carved in volcanic stone).
In Chilean Patagonia, fjords and glaciers receive genuine adventurous spirits, with circuits for trekking such as the famous Torres del Paine and places of exuberant nature along the Carretera Austral (Southern Road). In the Antarctic, the new frontier, travelers discover the magic of life in surroundings of eternal ice.
