Marvel at the moai

Officially part of Chile, the mysterious and remote Easter Island lies in the middle of the South Pacific, a 5-hour flight from the mainland. This small patch of grass-covered volcanic rock is an extraordinary open-air museum of hundreds of moai (gigantic stone statues) scattered throughout the island. Explore Hanga Roa and dip into the Polynesian culture of the island.

Experience indigenous cultures

The northern Lake District is covered in araucaria and lenga forests, and is home to the indigenous Mapuche people. The small town of Pucon and the nearby lake are a good base for exploring the surrounding national parks, including the volcanic caves on the slopes of the active Villarrica volcano, ancient forests, crystal-clear waterfalls and numerous hot springs. It possible to arrange a visit to a native community in the area.

Taste world-class wine

Set between the snow-capped Andes and the coast, the fertile valleys around Santiago are home to world-famous wineries, country traditions and warm hospitality. Exclusive winery estates, some among the oldest in Chile, offer relaxing stays in their colonial haciendas or boutique lodges as well as the opportunity to sample some of the region’s finest wines.

Head off the beaten track

Coastal Arica, Chile’s northernmost city, is a gateway to the archaeological and natural wonders to be discovered inland, high into the Andes. The region is dotted with picturesque adobe villages and remains of pre-Columbian cultures, including mysterious rock carvings and geoglyphs. On the border with Bolivia lies the desolate Lauca National Park, with snowcapped volcanoes overlooking the emerald green Lake Chungara and Cotacotani lagoon. Flamingoes, rheas and guanacos can be spotted roaming the altiplano.

Stargaze in the desert

Northern Chile is renowned for its incredibly clear skies and unpolluted atmosphere, attracting astronomers from all over the world. Verdant valleys lie between the coastal town of La Serena and the Andes, and contrast with the arid brown of the mountains. Astronomical observatories like Mamalluca and La Stela are open for visitors to gaze at the wonders of the skies.
