Chile stretches a near 4,300 kilometres in length, over half the length of South America itself spanning from the tropical Andes Mountains, to the southernmost tip of Cape Horn - often referred to as ‘the end of the earth’. Chile offers an abundance of activities for lovers of the outdoors, wine, food and culture, and one of the best ways to explore this vast country is by joining a guided tour, so you can uncover the highlights and iconic attractions in each city.

Leave your heart in Santiago
A city where you can swim and hike in the same day, Santiago is treated to grand Andes ranges in the east and the sparkling Pacific Ocean to the west. Most tours of Chile will launch and conclude in Chile’s capital city Santiago – a spectacular metropolis with a backdrop of the snow-capped Andes Mountains.
It’s highly recommended spending some time either side of your Chilean travels to take in Santiago’s flourishing arts scene, lively nightlife and burgeoning culinary offerings. Don’t miss seeing the view from San Cristobal Hill, or trying the local cocktail, ‘terremoto’, a pineapple ice-cream and fermented wine concoction.
From wine country to Antarctica
Pop the cork off your Chilean holiday with a tour of the country’s famed wine region. Chile is blessed with a remarkable range of microclimates and terrains – making for an incredible range of grape varietals. Choose to tour through the renowned wine valleys of Maipo, San Antonio, Casablanca, Cachapoal and more. With Chile’s coastline being three times the length of California’s, it's fair to say seafood and wine make very good friends here.
For the ultimate adventure, combine your adventure in Chile with a trip to Antarctica. Most tours first encompass trekking through Patagonia’s sheer mountains, sparkling lakes and glaciers before heading on to explore the marine wildlife rich waters of the Antarctic Peninsula in the South Shetland Islands.
