Signature Chile: Atacama Desert to Patagonian glaciers

14 days from £3962pp

Private Journey

A skinny coastal strip backed by the Andes mountains, Chile has a variety of climate and landscapes to match its changing latitudes.  This comprehensive tour of Chile’s natural highlights is jam-packed full of outdoor experiences. It’s a peaceful and welcoming place with a good infrastructure, and, in spite of the distances, it’s easy to get around. Excellent hotels, abundant sea food and delicious wines are all among the ingredients of this superb holiday.

Travel from the moon-like Atacama Desert through the vineyards in the Central Valley close to Santiago and on to the snow-dipped cones and tumbling streams of the lake district. Continue to view Patagonia’s cathedral-high glaciers, icy lagoons and wildlife-filled grasslands.
