Chile

Tailor made Holidays and Honeymoons to Chile

Contact us for specialist Latin America experience, we can tailor anything to suit your requirements, whether you are on honeymoon or wanting a challenging mountain climb!  From the Pacific Coast to the high Andes mountains, south to Antarctica and the wildlife paradise of Patagonia, we can also combine Chile with neighbouring countries such as Argentina, which works particularly well into Santiago and out of Buenos Aires crossing the Atacama Desert by land! Ring us on 01728 748209 or send an enquiry. 

Chile offers an incredible range of landscapes from the world’s driest desert in the north to the isolation of Tierra del Fuego in the south.  Cruise through spectacular fjords and glaciers, sample the fruits of the wine routes or explore the high Andes mountains, Chile can be visited year round and has different appeal in varying seasons – you can ski in the northern hemisphere’s summer!

A long, thin country on South America’s Pacific coast, Chile has nearly 3000 miles of coastline but the country is rarely wider than 100 miles.  Separating Chile from Bolivia and Argentina are the Andes Mountains. There are no direct flights from the UK, most are via Madrid or other South American airports. There are currently no health requirements or visas needed for UK passport holders.

There are great fly drive options here, particularly in the lake district and wine regions, the lakes being at their best between November and March. The capital is Santiago and located in the middle of Chile, is a modern city with historic buildings and fashionable suburbs full of European style wine bars and restaurants.  Nearby is the historic coastal town of Valparaiso and the fertile winelands of the Central Valley. Vines were first planted in Chile as far back as 1550 but only recently has this wonderful wine commonly graced the tables of Europe. Some of the vineyards offer accommodation on site, so take your time and enjoy a tasting tour!

Chile is a fabulous destination for adventure holidays. The Atacama Desert in the north is the driest place on earth and has truly breathtaking landscapes, rising to 4000m above sea level. The main base here is the town of Pedro de Atacama with white washed churches and small villages and towns nearby, it’s a far cry from the capital of Santiago!  Explore the desert region including altiplanic lagoons, salt flats, geysers, vivid red landscapes and the Valley of the Moon.  At the other end of Chile is the most well known National Park in the country, Torres del Paine in Patagonia which is famed for it’s iconic granite pillars.  It also has stunning glaciers, brightly coloured lakes and rugged huge plains, ideal for hiking or horse riding.

Also belonging to Chile, five hours by air from Santiago deep in the Pacific is Easter Island, famous for it’s giant Moai statues.  The Polynesian culture here attracts visitors from all around the world.  Note that Easter Island has a sub tropical climate with the wettest month being May and warmest from January to March.  The statues range from 10 to 40 ft in height and weigh more than 50 tons! This is one of the most isolated places on earth and the landscape is mainly of rolling hills with few trees but a few good sandy beaches. Splendours of Chile is an escorted tour to which you can add Easter Island.

Accommodation in Chile ranges from camping and eco-lodges to boutique hotels and guest houses.  Whether you want to join an escorted tour, adventure tour, self drive or have a bespoke itinerary just for you, give me a call to put together your perfect holiday to Chile!

 

Julie and John travelled with Exodus as part of a Peru Explorer group trip which included Nasqua Lines, Arequipa and Colca Canyon, Lake Titicaca, Cusco and Machu Picchu and the Amazon.  As the Inca Trail was too busy they opted for the less well trodden ‘Moonstone Trek’ which still ended at Machu Picchu but much […]

I work hard to be able to afford great holidays. I know that you Jules work very hard to make sure that I enjoy my holidays. I love the fact that you can take my fledgling dream for a trip, and transform it into real life; that you listen to what I would like to do, and adjust the finer details to fit my dream, never suggesting that my dream be squeezed into a pre-formed package.

We had a wonderful time in Peru - thank you for organising this, the people were lovely and I particularly enjoyed the train travel. The Amazon lodge was amazing and we did all the tours day and night!

One of the things I have come to love about you, Jules, is that you listen and take on board what makes me tick, and then tailor the holiday to fit me, not just try to convince me to fit a holiday in a brochure!
