Overview & Highlights

Explore Chile’s volcanic and glaciated wilderness landscapes on foot, by bike, or on the water. Chile hosts some of the most dramatic scenery in the world and has a good infrastructure for outdoor activities. Osorno volcano and the Torres de Paine National Park are the pinnacles of its natural scenery.

  • Day walk in Huerquehue National Park
  • Half-day river rafting on the Rio Trancura (class 3)
  • Full-day kayaking in the Reloncavi fjord
  • Half-day cycling along the shores of Lake Llanquihue
  • Day walks in Torres del Paine National Park

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 clients say

It was a very memorable and exciting holiday. As well as the magnificent scenery, I was bowled over by the birds, animals and flowers. Compared to Europe, it felt very unspoilt and unpopulated.
