A ‘Walk on the Wild Side’
From the uncompromising deserts of the north through the fertile central valley, from the lush pastures of its volcano-studded lake district to the glaciers of Patagonia, Chile offers some of the most thrilling and diverse landscapes in South America. Approximately 400 miles off the south-eastern tip of South America, the Falklands archipelago is teeming with nature and wildlife wonders, affording a pristine environment with endless horizons and surprisingly stunning white sand beaches.
Now it is possible to combine the two for an unforgettable walk on the wild side. A stunning wildlife destination in its own right, the Falkland Islands is accessed by regualr LAN flights from Santiago, Chile, making the two an easy and complementary combo for outdoors enthusiasts.
Trip highlights include climbing a snow-capped volcano, kayaking, cycling and glacier trekking along Chile's Pacific coast before flying to the Falklands capital of Stanley. Once in the Falklands thr trip takes in some of the outlying islands of this remote Overseas Territory, with time to explore distinctive mountain ranges, deserted beaches and varied wildlife from birds of prey to killer whales, penguins and sea lions.
