Top Reasons to Go to Chile

This country is UNREAL. The mountains, the desert, the food, the people, all are amazing. Here are just a few reasons you should go and experience Chile, according to yours truly.

Torres del Paine National Park in Patagonia. Obviously you need to go here, you can practically hear the mountains calling your name! You don’t need to be a serious trekker to enjoy the beauty of this national park, although if you want to get to this lake and deep in the mountains, you’ll want to be able to enjoy long days of hiking. If you’re an adventurous trekker, we recommend the Torres del Paine W Trek or the Circuit Trek. If you want a more mellow trip where you can enjoy the stunning views and go on long hikes if you feel like it, and shorter hikes, fishing, kayaking, biking, wildlife viewing, and more, we recommend the Torres del Paine EcoCamp Adventure.
The Atacama Desert, the world’s driest desert, and full of startling colors and wild rock formations. Check out the Atacama Desert Trek if you want to get deep into the wilderness and camp under the stars.
Star gazing. Some of the best star gazing in the world is in the Atacama Desert, which is home to some of the world’s most powerful telescopes. But you can also see an incredible night sky in other remote parts of Chile.
Rapa Nui (Easter Island). Why were these statues built? What did they mean? What is the meaning of life? Discover the remote and isolated island for yourself on the Rapa Nui Explorer.
Surround yourself with beauty in the Lakes District. Here you can hike, mountain bike, road bike, whitewater raft, sail, or just relax with a glass of wine. There’s something for everyone!
Drink as much wine as possible in the Wine Region. Chilean wines are delicious and affordable!
Follow your dreams of becoming a cowboy or cowgirl. Ride with the baqueanos in Patagonia, rounding up sheep and wild horses, and enjoying the freedom of the expansive pampas (plains).
Eat your fruits and veggies! Being a long, narrow country, Chile has all types of climates and micro climates, so you can find everything grown locally or nearby.
Do you live for winter? Ditch summer in the northern hemisphere and head down south to shred the sweet pow in Andes!
Eat asado – a whole lamb roasted over an open fire and bed of coals. If you don’t eat meat, there will always be plenty of wine at an asado.
If you like to get off the beaten path, and think that Torres del Paine will be too crowded for you, which out the Dientes Circuit on Navarino Island — days of stunning mountains, lakes, and hardly anyone else in sight!
