Chile

A melting pot of topography and peoples, thin Chile extends over 4,000kms from the Atacama Desert in the far north to the southern reaches of Tierra del Fuego. Capital Santiago is marked by the Spanish love of grand buildings and to the north is an isolated land stretching from the Atacama Desert to the volcanoes bordering Peru. In contrast, central Chile is characterised by the vineyards of the Colchagua Valley and the beautiful Chilean Lake District. Travel to southern Chile and stand awestruck in the majestic beauty of Torres del Paine National Park, one of the outstanding reserves of Latin America, or travel into the Pacific to look into the unmistakable obsidian eyes of the giant and mysterious Easter Island statues – some of the most incredible, yet little-understood, ancient relics ever discovered. Pettitts have led the way in designing tailor-made holidays and tours to Chile for over 25 years.
