Chile Holidays

Land of fire and ice

A land of outstanding natural beauty, from the driest desert in the world to the glaciers of Patagonia, Chile holidays promise a feast for the eyes.

See snow-covered volcanoes, pink flamingo-filled beaches, fertile wine regions and lush rainforests, and get lost amid Chile’s stunning wonders. Visit the Atacama Desert for amazing landscapes, and fall in love with vibrant cities such as charming Santiago and coastal Valparaíso.  No matter where you venture in Chile, you’ll feel like you’re standing on the edge of the world.

Twin your Chilean visit with a stay in Mexico, head to party-central Cancun or laidback Cozumel. Or, visit Costa Rica, famed for its wildlife and picturesque beaches.
