A country of stunning nature, known for the beautiful expanses of the Land of Fire, wild and flourishing Patagonia, active volcanoes, and even goofy penguins. At the same time, it is proud of its excellent cuisine and is always full of hospitable and smiling Chileans.

It stretches 4,300 km in length, making it the longest country in the world and 430 km wide (its widest part), from the driest deserts in the world to massive ice fields. Tourists are attracted by its natural surroundings, including geysers, mountains, beaches, forests and volcanoes. The abundance of national parks in Chile allows trekking and hiking. Adventurers can also enjoy rafting, mountain biking and horseback riding.

The further you go to the south of Chile, the greener it gets, until you come across snow volcanoes, which stretch over hills and lakes. This area offers rafting and hiking to thermal springs. Hospitality is the main feature of southerners, so relax and enjoy.

The capital and largest city of Chile was founded on February 14, 1541 and is currently divided into 37 municipalities. Urban aesthetics, whose background is the Andes Mountains, stood out for its high-quality infrastructure and architecture. Santiago offers you a variety of activities: from hiking in the neighboring hills, through cultural tours to exploring the presidential residence Palacio de la Moneda.

Valparaiso is undoubtedly the a unique city in Chile and one of the most unusual cities in all of Latin America. It has long been the best kept secret on the continent. In 2003, it was included in the UNESCO World Heritage List. Chaotically steep hills, with steep intertwined roads, dilapidated estates and kaleidoscopic roofs, will give the opportunity for even amateur photographers to take photos on every corner.

There is also the inevitable Easter Island, which is enchanting in one word. It will win your heart in just a few days. It is one of the most isolated places on earth, and on the other hand, it is famous all over the world for its moai enigmatic statues.

Chile always has a region that yearns to explore it, no matter the season. But if you want to visit a specific part of the country, choose your dates carefully. The southern charms of Chile, including the Torres del Paine and the Lake Area, are best visited in the summer (December to March) because some parts are impassable in the winter (June to September). Meanwhile, Chile can be wonderful for skiers in winter, where ski resorts receive a large number of winter sports enthusiasts from July to September.

Embark on an adventure through this land of abundance thaz has it all - from the driest desert in the world, Atacama, through urban Santiago to the cold fjords of Patagonia where penguins welcome you.
