Active Chile: Hiking, cycling and kayaking in the lake district and Patagonia

13 days from £3,388pp
 

Private Journey

 
Chile, with its long Pacific coastline extending from the northern desert through the lush pastures of the volcano-studded lake district to the glaciers of Patagonia, is one of Latin America’s most rewarding countries for outdoor adventures.

There’s a well-developed infrastructure to cater for the demand for outdoor adventures.  Chile offers a range of well supported and guided activities including hikes, volcano climbing, river rafting, horse riding and  mountain biking. While the country lacks visible historical culture, it makes up for it with its exquisite natural landscapes.

This private holiday includes different outdoor experiences: hiking, biking, river-rafting and kayaking.  The hikes are challenging:  you’ll enjoy them best if you are used to walking for several hours a day in countryside which can be steep and rocky.

Good weather can’t be guaranteed of course in a region of fast-changing climatic conditions, but in the southern summer – November to March – you have a good chance of catching some clear, sunny days, promising a magical experience.

What our experts say

If you have the opportunity to fly south from Santiago to Puerto Montt or Punta Arenas in Patagonia, make sure you book a seat on the left-hand-side of the plane. You’re children will be rewarded with spectacular scenery of glacial lakes, snow-capped volcanoes and granite peaks for the 3-4 hour flight. There is no better entertainment than this view, I promise.
