A Symphony of Landscapes

Overview

If you look it up on the map, Chile is an absurdly long country stretching along the west coast of South America. For a country this thin, the sheer diversity of the topographies it offers is astounding.

Chile is not like the usual travel destinations. In world filled with standardized travel experiences, Chile is disruptive in every sense of the word. It is blessed with so many different landscapes that it almost seems unfair.  With deserts, volcanoes, mountains, lakes, glaciers, beaches and highlands, Chile is rugged and spectacular at the same time. From the golden sands of the Atacama Desert to the chilling waters of the Patagonian fjords, Chile is nature’s roller coaster ride.

Chile’s cityscapes are as alive and vibrant as its people. The architecture of its cities and towns tells stories of Chile’s past. Vividly painted walls, especially in the city of Valparaiso portray the contemporary side of Chile.

The people of Chile welcome you to their country with open arms. The warm and generous nature of the Chilean people will touch your heart. 

Chilean cuisine brings together lip-smacking flavours of South America and local fresh ingredients. Whether its street food or fine-dining, Chilean cuisine will leave you asking for more.

So, as you experience in Chile’s incredible landscapes, wander around its picturesque towns or immerse yourself in Chilean art and culture, you feel alive, enriched and awed.

This fort was founded in 1843 on the rocky nose of Santa Ana, where the state of Chile took possession of the Estrecho de Magallanes.  The fort houses a church, a prison, the chaplain’s room, water wells, powder keg, the post office and the cowshed that belonged to the first Chilean garrison in 1843. While parts of the original fort have been renovated, and you can still feel the essence of the first inhabitants of this region.
