Overview & Highlights

Explore Chile’s wild landscapes from this magnificent country's top-of-the-range properties with a choice of exciting outdoor activities.

  • Relais & Chateaux properties in Torres del Paine, Atacama Desert and Lake District.
  • Choice of inspirational excursions included throughout.

The untamed wilderness landscapes of Chile, from the primeval deserts of Atacama through the ancient forest of the lake district and the glaciers of Patagonia, were for long virtually inaccessible to leisure visitors. Roads were rough, passing through fords and over primitive bridges, and accommodation limited to humble guest-houses. Nowadays that has changed – roads are still often lonely, cutting through swathes of barren rock, tight valleys or steppe, but many are paved: journey times have been slashed. Entrepreneurs have as a result been inspired to establish hotels, lodges and resorts of all standards - not so many as to compromise the feeling of remoteness, but giving you the option of discovering this incredible scenery from luxurious accommodation, with highly trained English-speaking guides and gourmet cuisine.

What our clients say

97% of our clients rated their experience with us as Excellent or Good.

"Dancing at Cafe Taberna in Havana; going to the ballet in Havana on our last night. Both occasions unforgettable. But there were other highlights such as swimming in the Banos de San Juan, outside Las Terrazas; eating at El Paraiso (near Vinales) whilst watching the sun set; staying at Las Terrazas; going for an amazing massage in Trinidad; the trip in a Vintage car whilst in Havana; learning about the history and politics of the country, most particularly the Revolution; reading Graham Greene's Our Man In Havana whilst sitting on a terrace watching a thunderstorm in Trinidad."
