10 day group trip from £8298
Chile stretches along the Pacific Ocean and part of the Atlantic Ocean. It forms an interesting shape on the map – sort of like Portugal but much longer. The vast Andean mountains stretch along the West Coast of South America and loom over much of Chile, including its capital city, Santiago.
The country was ruled by the Incas until the Spanish conquest of the 16th-century. The Inca’s reign had only lasted for around seventy years. Before they extend their empire to incorporate Chile, it was home to the indigenous Mapuche people. The descendants of the Mapuche still live in Chile, chiefly in the Patagonia region.
In the 1970s, Chile’s democratically elected government was overthrown by Augusto Pinochet. Many thousands of people were tortured and disappeared under his rule.
Since 1990, Chile has been a thriving democracy and one of the most stable and prosperous countries in South America.

Chile’s capital and biggest city, Santiago, is surrounded by the snowy Andes and home to 7 million people. The city has a blossoming food and wine scene. With a growing economy and stable government, Santiago is very much a city on the rise. It’s catching up with its more iconic counterparts in Brazil and Argentina.
The territory of Chile stretches from Easter Island right the way to its base in the South Pole. The climate and topography of Chile are almost schizophrenic. It has the world’s driest desert in the North, vast glaciers in Patagonia and the subtropical climes of Easter Island.
Take a flight from Santiago to Easter Island and discover its mysterious Maoi megaliths. These vast sculptures were carved out of volcanic stone in the Medieval period. No one knows quite why they were built or what purpose they served.
Visit the Atacama Desert to the West of the Andes. This is the world’s driest desert and it looks like the surface of Mars.
Visit the Marble Caves of Chile Chico. Formed over 6000 years by waves lapping against calcium carbonate, the marble caves are as blue as the lake that surrounds them.
Fly direct to Santiago.
