Our Chile tours take you to a land of extremes. This South American country's diverse landscapes are made up of fiery volcanoes and salt deserts, idyllic beaches and dense forests, gargantuan valleys and majestic vineyards, cobalt glacial lakes and snow-capped mountains. Chile's geographical extremes mean that diversity can be found in the hospitality of its people and its food and drink - from empanadas to king crab, tropical fruits to excellent wines.
On our Chile escorted tours (which form part of our longer 'Grand Tour of South America'), we’ll explore Santiago, the vibrant and culture-led capital, take in views of the magnificent Andes, and visit the coastal town of Viña del Mar. We’ll sail across serene lakes and marvel at the wildlife including Magellanic penguins. Our Chile holidays will give you a taste of the country’s most spectacular highlights.View all holidays to Chile

Set at the foot of the Andes, Santiago has arguably one the world’s best backdrops. The views across the city are quite spectacular, as the snow-covered peaks rise up to the sky framing a busy metropolis. Its cultural scene is thriving, as well as its outstanding National Museums of history and fine art. We’ll wander amongst the city’s colonial architecture at Plaza de Armas and explore the bohemian district of Bellavista, as well as take an elevator to the top of San Cristobal Hill where we can drink in great views of the Andes towering over the city.
The pretty city of Puerto Varas has magical vistas across the shimmering Llanquihue Lake, flanked by two imposing volcanoes Calbuco and Osorno. We’ll sail via catamaran to the green waters of Lake Todos los Santos and admire the scenery, as well as explore Vicente Perez Rosales National Park, home to pumas and tiny pudú deer.
The southernmost city of Chile, Punta Arenas on the edge of the Magellen Strait is an urban sprawl of buildings with a modern edge and unique and fascinating history. The industrial city connects travellers to Argentina, but what draws visitors here is the incredible marine life and surrounding scenery. Meanwhile, we’ll be astounded by the penguin colonies at Otway Sounds - where tens of thousands of Magellanic penguins come to nest on during October to March.
