´Chile´, Pablo Neruda wrote, ‘was invented by a poet’. Bordered on one side by the Andes and on the other by the Pacific Ocean, it extends over 4000kms north to south and averages only 177kms east to west.
From the Atacama Desert, the mainland stretches south through vineyards, lakes, fjords and snow-capped volcanoes to the breathtaking Torres del Paine National Park and beyond to Cape Horn, southernmost point in the Americas.
Chile’s geography is perfectly honed for adventure and exploration, with some of South America´s finest lodges and most unspoilt landscapes.
