Chile is one of the most diverse countries in the world. Whether you’re visiting for a week, a month, or even longer, you’ll never run out of new things to see. Val has chosen some of her favourite destinations to offer some inspiration, but as always, your Fleewinter holiday is completely tailored to you.
Torres del Paine National Park is the jewel in the crown of Chile, and arguably all of South America. One of the continent’s most visited places, here you will witness nature at its most raw and beautiful. Hanging glaciers, turquoise lakes and towering granite horns will conjure the feeling of being at the very end of the world.
The scenery of the Atacama Desert is truly something to behold! Moon-like landscapes, small villages where timeless traditions live on and some of the world’s best stargazing. The world’s driest desert will surprise you with its sheer force of life, and the ancient culture will envelop you in one of the country’s warmest welcomes.
Did we say Chilean wine? Yes please! Spend a few days sipping some of the world’s best wines whilst relaxing by the pool, or maybe in the comfort of your room at one of the country’s best wineries. Most are a short drive from Santiago, so you can enjoy a spot of shopping in the cosmopolitan capital, too.
Picture a myriad of deep blue lakes dotted amidst verdant forests, snow capped volcanoes, charming villages and friendly inhabitants. Welcome to Chile’s Lake District! This is one of the country’s most scenic destinations. Perfect if you love outdoor activities or simply want to sit back and relax.
Spanning over 1,000 km of Chilean Patagonia, ‘Route 7’ or more commonly referred to as the Carretera Austral is the best destination if you are looking for an off-the-beaten-track journey. This is the ultimate self-drive experience through the world’s last great wilderness. Pack comfy shoes, lots of layers and a good dose of adventure!
Imagine a tiny speck of land in the vast, open Pacific Ocean. This is Rapa Nui! One of the most remote places on earth, Easter Island is one of those bucket list destinations, and one that will leave indelible memories in your heart. Although Chilean, the island has a Polynesian soul and a mysticism that will draw you in and leave you fascinated.
“The best time to travel to Chile…
…is now! Chile is reopening to international travel and British Airways has now resumed its direct overnight flight to Santiago from London Heathrow. And perhaps most importantly for travellers this year, you do not need to quarantine when returning to the UK.
November to April is the perfect season to visit, offering long warm summer days full of bright sunshine. Make the most of southerly destinations, including Patagonia and Torres del Paine.
If you needed any more persuasion, I’d say every time I travel to Chile I am just stunned by its natural beauty. It makes me feel amazingly small, standing in front of the mighty spectacle of nature. Patagonia especially is simply unique, there’s no other word for it. The vastness of Chile’s landscapes is so awe-inspiring that I have to pinch myself every time I visit! I cannot wait to help plan your trip to this astonishing country.”
