Chile might be South America’s “skinniest” country, but it is packed with natural wonders you really shouldn’t miss. Santiago is surrounded by the dramatic Andes Mountains and has many museums and art galleries to visit. On the coast, Valparaiso is a popular destination with its narrow streets, colourful houses and amazing graffiti. Head for the white sandy beaches at La Senera and the lovely Elqui Valley to watch the night sky at Mamalluca Observatory. Tour the haunting Atacama Desert, the driest desert in the world; explore the beautiful Parque Nacional Lauca and the Parque Nacional Torres del Paine in Chilean Patagonia. Hike in Parque Nacional Villarrica which has three volcanoes and go white water rafting in Chile’s Lake District. Fly out to mysterious Easter Island to see the incredible Moai statues.
