Chile's narrow territory encompasses so many climates and cultures within its borders - perfect for outdoor adventure travelers. In the north, the world's driest desert in the Atacama region is home to ancient lava flows, salt lagoons, and active volcanic geysers, and its high elevation is an ideal place to view the night skies. Glacial Patagonia in the south has snow-capped mountains, blue glaciers, and the raw, rugged nature of Torres del Paine and Bernardo O'Higgins National Parks. 2,000 miles off the coast lies Easter Island and Rapa Nui National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. And in between it all lies the central valley and Santiago, Chile's vibrant capital city with museums and colorful neighborhood barrios each with its own personality, not to mention one of the most prolific wine producing regions in the world. ¡Salud!
