Chile holidays invite you to experience a world of wonder. From exploring contrasting natural landscapes, to visiting an array of wineries, or from relaxing on picture perfect beaches to penguin spotting on Chiloé Island, there are plenty of activities to fill your get away with.

Spend time hiking through the mountain ranges and enjoying awe inspiring, panoramic views from the mountain tops. Experienced climbers and hikers can opt to climb the challenging 6,893 metre high Ojos del Salado, while those looking for a more relaxed hike can choose to walk up Mount Tarn, which is 825 metres high. History buffs and culture lovers should visit Plaza de Armas, where you can find the beautiful neoclassical cathedral and the fascinating National History Museum full of intriguing artefacts.

Create unforgettable memories in Chile

Stroll around the palm tree lined Chilean capital city, Santiago. Call into local shops, unique boutiques and treat yourself to a spot of lunch at one of the many cafés and restaurants the city has to offer. Nature enthusiasts and those looking to capture incredible photos and memories must take a trip to Chile’s phenomenal glaciers. Check out The Grey Glacier, which is over 30 metres high and 6 kilometres wide. Grab yourself a secluded spot on one of the many gorgeous beaches and catch up on your reading. If you’re in Santiago, make sure you sample the Viña del Mar beach resort.

Extend your stay by choosing one of our multi-centre Chile packages. Combine your Chilean getaway with a trip to Mexico, or get up close with more nature and serene scenery in Costa Rica.

Visit vibrant cities

Chile's capital city, Santiago, is a charming mix of old and new. Set beneath the impressive Andes halfway down the coastline, Santiago is filled with a thriving culinary scene, a booming café culture, a delightful old district and many fine museums. A highlight of the town is the Cerro San Cristóbal: a hill that's crowned with a white statue of the Virgin Mary and offering stunning views of the city below.

Easter Island

Easter Island

Easter Island's enigmatic stone statues are dotted throughout the Chilean island, and are shrouded in mystical aura. The silent spectators of Chile's past, these world-famous moai are made of compacted volcanic ash, with more than 1,000 of the giant statues dotted across the island, 400 of which can be found in the quarries of the Rano Raraku Volcano.

Atacama Desert

Atacama Desert

Chile's Atacama Desert is the driest desert in the world, with unique rock formations and startlingly beautiful landscapes. The oasis town of San Pedro de Atacama is situated right in the centre of the desert, built of adobe houses and filled with markets, outdoor restaurants and charming hotels.

Torres del Paine National Park

Chile's Lake District

Chile's lush Lake District is a magnificent playground of peaceful lakes, raging rivers and ancient forests, towered over by snow-capped volcanoes. This wilderness area was once the territory of the Mapuche people, who fought valiantly against the Spanish for nearly three centuries.

Barbara, Destination Specialist

“If you are in Santiago and would like to escape the city and go high up in the Andes without a lot of travelling, there is a hike in the Aguas de Ramon park. Go by public transport or an inexpensive taxi ride. The park is open year round and admission is only about £3. The views and hiking are amazing.”

“I recommend visiting La Moneda Palace in Santiago, which houses the Chilean president and the cabinet. You can book a tour with an English guide here and learn more about the palace and the president.”

“Easter Island is the most remote inhabited island in the world, but it’s definitely worth the five hour flight to stand in awe of the wonders that are the Moai heads.”

Fiestas Patrias

Join in the Chilean celebrations of Fiestas Patrias (Independence Day), which involves a two day celebration to commemorate the day Chile became independent. The annual festivities take place on the 18th and 19th September and involve lots of lively parades, delicious food, traditional music and thirst quenching beverages. 

Chilean wine

Taste some of the Chilean wine, you won’t be disappointed. Attend a wine tasting tour or ask your waiter in the restaurant which wine you should try. Chile is known for excellent Cabernet Sauvignons, Merlots and Carmenère.

Completo

Treat yourself to a Completo (hot dog). This melt in your mouth dish is often quite large, so make sure you have plenty of room. A Completo is often served with chopped tomatoes, avocados, Chilean chili, green sauce, cheese, mayonnaise and sauerkraut.

Chilean Empanadas

A must try traditional dish is the Chilean Empanadas. The most popular Empanadas are filled with “pino” which is beef, onions, raisins, black olives and sometimes topped with a hard boiled egg or two. Chilean Empanadas can be smoky or spicy, however, the sweetness of the raisins complements the taste.

Chilean Bean Stew

Chilean Bean Stew, or Porotos Granados as they are also known, packs a flavourful and hearty punch and will fill you up. Chilean Bean Stew uses ingredients such as onions, butternut squash, corn, beans, tomatoes and seasoning.
