Luxury holidays in Chile

No wonder Chile produced some of the 20th century’s most prized poets. Nobel Prize winners Gabriela Mistral and Pablo Neruda had as their muses the sparse beauty of the Atacama, the Colchagua Valley's gentle vineyards, the active volcanoes of Zona Sur, the Patagonian ice fields… Today, this land of extremes has never been more accessible, with millions of acres of protected parkland and direct flights to Santiago from London and New York.

Destinations in Chile

  • A virtually uninhabited spot between the curve of the Pacific coast and the snowy-peaked Andes, the Atacama desert is a vast, alien landscape of ruby-red rocks, white-tinted salt plains and star-strewn skies.
  • Snow-capped mountains, vast lakes and fjords, pasture and dense forest… Chilean Patagonia, at the southernmost tip of South America, has an unfair share of natural beauty.
  • Chiloé island is cloaked in a mythical, and often actual, mist; if legends are true, visitors to this magical Chilean spot will see demons, phantom ships and mermaids (oh my!) while exploring the dense forests and shoreline.
  • The famous Moai heads may be remote Easter Island’s main lure, but the diving, scenic hikes and unique culture make the five-hour flight from Chile more than worth your while.
  • Coldplay’s ‘A Sky Full of Stars’ could have been written about Elqui Valley, a cosmic corner of northern Chile where cloudless, ink-black skies make for some of the world’s best stargazing.
  • Set in central Chile, Millahue valley and its rolling vineyards are bordered by the snow-dusted Andes Mountains; they’re just two hours’ drive from capital city Santiago.
  • Chile’s most iconic surf spot, Punta de Lobos, is a five-minute drive from coastal city Pichilemu.
  • A city boasting summer skiing, winter sun and year-round diversions, from snowsports to museum jaunts? Santiago, Chile’s multi-talented capital, ticks all the right boxes for adventurous travellers.
  • Chile's Zona Sur is a real adventurist’s playground, full of snow-capped volcanoes, majestic lakes and tracts of fern-filled forest.
