Like a spine along the western seaboard of South America, Chile
is over 2,500 miles long but never more than 150 miles at its
The Original Travel team are hot on Chile, having visited
several times in the last few years, and can explain what best to
see and do in this extraordinary destination. We can arrange a
visit to the lunar landscapes of the Atacama
Desert, which receives very little rainfall - a concept as
close to inconceivable as is possible to the average Briton.
In contrast, the Lake
District in the mid-south is a region of mountains, waterfalls
and forest designed for the enjoyment of outdoor pursuits. While
we're on the active subject, there is quality skiing in the Andes,
and we recommend resorts like Portillo and Valle Nevado which are
knee-deep in powder from June to August. Santiago, the capital, is a pivotal point, and to the
south-west of the capital lies the outstanding (and hugely
under-rated) wine-growing district of Central Valley.
Further south still we know all about where to stay and what to
do in wild, desolate and quite magnificent Chilean Patagonia. Here
we can organise trips to see glaciers running down to the ocean,
and the forbidding peaks of Torres del Paine, a world biosphere reserve, towering
over a series of lakes and rivers.
A journey through Chile can see you experiencing anything from
ice flowing in the Antarctic South to parched deserts in the North.
The Country is a filling of great culture, food, contrasting
landscapes and wine sandwiched between the Pacific in the West and
Andes in the East. Our Latin America team are here to help with
every detail of your trip, and when it comes to a tailor made
luxury holiday, Chile won't disappoint.
