Adventure in Chile 1320 , 9 Days

Thin and unreasonably long, Chile stretches from the belly of South America to its foot, reaching from the driest desert on earth to vast southern glacial fields. Diverse landscapes unfurl over 4300 km stretch. Barren yet beautiful, Chile’s Atacama Desert is an alluring world of sand and rock. Santiago is home to modern skyscrapers and historic colonial architecture, while the journey through the wilds of Torres del Paine National Park is no small feat. But the rewards are unparalleled. Sunsets on the lagoon, hikes to the edges of glaciers and sweeping views that will get your heart racing. Chile is nature running free!
