Chile is nestled between the Pacific Ocean and the Andean highlands and bordered by Peru, Bolivia and Argentina. Its topography of desert, rainforests, peaks and glaciers makes it one of the most stunning South American countries. Due to its length – a wonderful 2,500 miles (4,000 km) – it’s important to decide what kind of trip you’d like when booking a flight to Chile.
Santiago, the capital, is a great base and provides easy access to other areas in Chile. From there, wine lovers can visit the colonial towns of the Central Valley and tour the lush vineyards surrounding them.
Adventure seekers should head north to the Andes where the geysers of El Tatio bubble. Skiers can get their adrenaline fix on the slopes of Farellones, La Parva, and Valle Nevado.
Much of Chile is covered with mountains and snow. The deserts in the north are warm in the day and cool in the night. The centre of the country has a more Mediterranean climate, with rains from May to August. The south is very cold, especially in the winter, and rainy.
Domestic flights are available throughout the country as well as regional flights to the neighbouring countries such as Peru or Bolivia. The bus system in Chile is very good. The network covers much of the country and service is cheap and efficient. In comparison, trains are poor; many lines are used only for freight.
