Chile

Last updated: 29 November 2017
Chile stretches down the east coast of South America and boasts almost six thousand kilometres of shore. The country is so narrow that visitors can ski in the Andes and surf in the Pacific Ocean on the same day.

Santiago, the capital city, boasts a palace and Cathedral of breathtaking Spanish splendour. The Museum in Santiago contains four and a half thousand exhibits from pre-Columbian times. Take a cable car up the Cerro San Cristobal, the bright white and beautiful statue of the Virgin Mary stands upon the hill overlooking the city. The views up here are great.

Don’t stick to the cities. Chilli’s wine industry was started four hundred years ago, and vineyards span almost the full length of the country.

Visit the Saint Rafael Glacier by boat. It is a spectacular journey. Take a drive to the Valley of the Moon. The rock formations are both otherworldly and quite spectacular. Climb a volcano in Pucon, and on Easter Island, find hundreds of statues left by previous civilisations.
