Chile

A slender ribbon of land 180 kms wide and 4.329 kms long, Chile encompasses a incredible array of landscapes and climates such as vineyards and volcanoes, lakes and rivers, verdant rainforests and arid desert plains. With this natural diversity, the country also lends itself to myriad adventure, relaxation and indulgence opportunities – including hiking, fly fishing, wine tasting, glacier-viewing boat cruises, and forays into the untamed wilderness.
