Stretching from the tinder­-dry Atacama Desert to the heaving seas of Cape Horn, Chile boasts a dizzying variety of landscapes, climates and cultures. Vibrant, bohemian cities such as Valparaíso contrast with awe-­inspiring Andean scenery, while world-­class skiing, trekking and surfing vie for attention with Chiloé’s fantastical myths and the Pacific island that inspired the tale of Robinson Crusoe. Use our map of Chile below to start planning your trip around this stunning country.

Visit the breathtaking spectacle of the mysterious, centuries-­old moai statues on Easter Island or take a trip to the Colchagua Valley to sip your way around some of the finest vineyards on earth. Then turn your sights away from Earth and try star­-gazing in the north of Chile, where the dry climate and clear skies create the perfect environment to house the world’s largest concentration of astronomical observatories.
